A show of solidarity is scheduled to show support to the live events industry and those who have lost their jobs since big events like concerts and shows have been canceled due to the coronavirus.

On Tuesday, many local venues and live events businesses in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties are joining the movement by lighting the venues, offices and marquees in red.

The Palm Beach County Convention Center, Kravis Center and Mizner Park Amphitheatre are just a few of the venues taking part.

The venues are lighting up to encourage Congress to pass the Restart Act, which would provide much-needed assistance for millions of Americans who have lost income due to the pandemic.
