Three 6 Mafia is an American hip hop group, which first emerged as a horror-themed underground rap group and eventually went on to enjoy mainstream success. The group's 1995 debut album Mystic Stylez was an influential cult classic. Two of their albums are RIAA-certified Platinum: When the Smoke Clears: Sixty 6, Sixty 1 (2000) and Most Known Unknown (2005), the latter featured their hit single "Stay Fly". In 2006, the group won the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 78th Academy Awards for their song "It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp" from the film Hustle & Flow.
The 21,017 arena seating capacity will be scaled down to 15% capacity, which includes 3,152 patrons and event staff. Tickets will be sold in restricted socially distanced seat blocks of up to six, with the vast majority of tickets in blocks of four.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, tickets are mobile only. Patrons can only use the Ticketmaster transfer option to forward tickets to the attending patrons in order to aide in contact tracing.
