As bands and artists keep having to put their tours on pause, Live Nation has declared that they will be postponing all yours until the end of the month.
Artists like Billie Eilish, Jason Aldean, Zac Brown Band that are part of larger scale tours hitting arenas near you will be held until the pandemic is put under a more controlled environment.
Along with Live Nation, Broadway has determined they will also close until April 12.
Billboard first shared the Live Nation news, revealing that they told employees they would be pulling all national and international tours off the road beginning this weekend. The company also will not be operating out of its office at this time, as many offices have started moving operations to virtual conferencing.
Nobody has mentioned layoffs as of yet, but the goal to touring for the acts that are on hold are looking at resuming in May or June. Considering some of the locations, like Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena for example, also will have postponed NBA and NHL games, it’s safe to say that it was a good thing 2020 was so overbooked. Now we have time to spread it throughout our calendars on later dates.
Consequence of Sound noted that “New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has directed public gatherings be limited to under 500 people as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the state hit 328,” and as we saw last night from one photographers images, subways were almost ghost towns since the declaration of pandemic.
