ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- It’s a milestone many New Mexicans are celebrating: the state will fully reopen July 1.

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced Friday that the state will drop all COVID-19 capacity restrictions now that 60% of New Mexicans are fully vaccinated.

The Rio Rancho Events Center is already planning for the future.

On Aug. 1, Foreigner will play for a live crowd. Zapp will bring R&B to the venue on Aug. 7.

"Our Gladiators and Gabriel Iglesias is also set to take center stage," said Alex Archuleta,

Just in time for the Fourth of July, the Isotopes are preparing to welcome more fans to The Lab.

"Now we have a lot of tickets to sell, a lot of work in front of us to pack the house," said John Traub, general manager of the Isotopes.

The Fourth of July series will showcase a huge fireworks display at the ballpark.
