 You might want to plan on supporting them some way also.  It's amazing
how tall they get in a high tunnel, and with an heavy fruit set, they'll
need support.

I think you'll be okay with that spacing. But I think you might be able
to better utilize space in the tunnel with twin rows 18" apart and the
plants offset in each row. The twin row centers can be 54-60" apart so
you can make maximum use of available space in the tunnel. If you're
growing big varieties like poblanos, you may need to spread the distance
a bit. Most varieties fit into that spacing well.
