Utah Judge Blocks Collin Raye Concert

Utah Judge Blocks Collin Raye Concert

A Utah judge blocked a free concert at The Amphitheater at Studio Ranch in Grantsville, Utah, that was slated to be headlined by Collin Raye on May 30. The event would have openly defied the state’s ban on gatherings of more than 50 people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Initially, the show was scheduled to take place at Barnes Park in Kaysville, Utah, on May 30, but backlash forced organizer Utah Business Revival to relocate to Grantsville. The outdoor event was organized to allow nonessential businesses to sell their goods and services.

According to usatoday.com, Judge Dianna Gibson ruled there was a real risk of spreading COVID-19 within the audience.

“Not allowing this event to move forward under these circumstances is not a deprivation of anyone’s individual constitutional right,” said Judge Gibson. “It is also not government overreach.”

The Utah Business Revival hosted a gathering at Benson Grist Mill park in Stansbury Park, Utah, on May 30.

“We will not be intimidated,” said a press release from Utah Business Review. “We have inalienable rights. Tonight we sent another clear message that we will not idly stand by and watch those rights be trampled upon.”
