H-E-B Center at Cedar Park has started scheduling events for the summer and fall, and the facility’s first event since its March closure due to coronavirus concerns will be a socially distanced, outdoor laser light show.

Outdoor Floyd, a laser projection and video show choreographed to Pink Floyd’s greatest hits, has been scheduled for 9 p.m. July 17-18 in the H-E-B Center’s south parking lots.

Fans who pay the $103 per vehicle advance ticket price can watch and listen to “concert-quality sound” from the safety of their vehicle, according to an H-E-B Center news release. Food and beverage packages at a cost of $40 are available in advance and will be delivered to the vehicle.

Two other concerts—Judas Priest on Oct. 5 and Craig Morgan and Roots & Boots on Oct. 18—were announced this week on the center’s website for inside the facility. Two other events scheduled between now and the Judas Priest concert: Vintage Market Days of Greater Austin on Aug. 28-30 and Greater Austin Comic Con 2020 on Oct. 3-4.


No sporting events have been scheduled, according to Marketing Director Erin Miller. The Texas Stars, an affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, and the Austin Spurs, an affiliate of the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, play their home games at H-E-B Center. Both canceled the remainder of their 2019-20 seasons due to the pandemic.

According to the release, H-E-B Center employees will be enforcing a social distancing and hygiene plan created by the center’s owner, ASM Global. The protocol, called Venue Shield, is an “advanced environmental hygiene protocol that will also be deployed in more than 325 ASM facilities around the world,” according to the release. Measures include the following.

  • All attendees must wear face masks. Those who do not have a mask will be given one.

  • Floor markers at 6-foot intervals will be placed at all entrances, box offices, concessions, restrooms and merchandise tables.

  • Elevators will be restricted to one party, and restroom capacity will be reduced.

  • High-touch areas will be cleaned repeatedly during the event.

  • The arenas will be deep cleaned between events.

  • All employees’ temperatures will be checked before each shift.


“We remain optimistic that we will be hosting live events in 2020,” H-E-B Center General Manager Sammy Wallace said in an email to Community Impact Newspaper. “H-E-B Center will follow the federal, state and local guidelines related to COVID-19 safety at the time of our events.”

Two ISD commencement ceremonies are currently scheduled: Leander ISD on July 9-11 and Lake Travis ISD on Aug. 1. Although LTISD is planning for a traditional commencement ceremony, LISD trustees have not yet decided on a commencement format for the district’s six high schools; the board will do so at the June 18 meeting.

H-E-B Center is located at 2100 Ave. of the Stars, Cedar Park.
