Ladies and gentleman, give a warm welcome to Elvis Presley! Actually an Elvis impersonator will be kicking off the first of a series of bi-weekly concerts at the outdoor stage at the Red Barn in Augusta this Tuesday.

The city of Augusta shut down similar concerts two summers ago for violating the city’s noise ordinance after neighbors complained.

This year the Red Barn has obtained a mass gathering permit. According to Matt Nazar, the city’s development director, the city’s noise ordinance specifically provides an exemption to its regulations for any event that has received another municipal permit, as long as it’s held between the hours of 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.

The Elvis tribute performance by impersonator Dave Michaud will be held this Tuesday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.. It’s a free concert at the outdoor stage at the Red Barn in Augusta.

More concerts are already lined up at the Red Barn, with the Elvis impersonator returning on May 27th and a bluegrass band on June 3rd.

A couple of residents that live near the Red Barn are not happy with the return of the concerts, citing excessive noise.

What do you think? Are you glad the free concerts will be back this summer at the Red Barn?
