With Coronavirus pandemic making huge waves across the world, people are requested to not come off of their houses. The music industry has lost billions of dollars is the last few weeks and musicians are just waiting for the day when COVID-19 ends.
With hundreds of tours currently postponed, fans are expecting the concerts to resume sometime later this year, which sadly seems to be not possible.
California Governor Gavin Newsom has thrown cold water on anyone hoping to attend a concert, music festival or sports event anytime soon.
During a press briefing, Newsom indicated there is no specific timeline for modifying restrictions that have been placed response to the coronavirus outbreak, but said concerts and mass gathering events are the last things to go back to normal.
“The prospect of mass gatherings is negligible at best until we get to herd immunity and we get to a vaccine. So large-scale events that bring in hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of strangers, all together across every conceivable difference, health and otherwise, is not in the cards based upon our current guidelines and current expectations.”
Acknowledging that conditions can change “radically,” Newsom added:
“When you suggest June, July, August, it is unlikely.”
