  1. I’m not a big conspiracy theorist , but our media sure does like fear …. Ive been watching Switzerland, IMO they are doing the right thing they believe in allowing their citizens to self distance and behave responsibly and its working – they have also stopped large gatherings, concerts ,sporting events etc- I BELIEVE corona is an aggressive respiratory flu we just have not seen before and being an eternal optimist , I think when we develop therapies and a vaccine for it like we did for… well everything else , things will go back to close to normal and within 18 months back to normal – and hopefully live rock and live music in general is still able to thrive, because if people don’t go to shows the industry might be in deep deep trouble because we all know artists cant make a living streaming or selling cd’s – I do think most concerts are going to be cancelled through the summer which I think is at this point the right thing to do- hopefully we can get back to shows by October – stay safe ~

  2. Health experts and Live Nation’s CEO are saying the concert industry realistically will not return until well into 2021 at the earliest. This “postponement” seems like wishful thinking…
