Live concerts and festivals may not come back until late-2021

Recommended Posts

I’ve only missed one acl since 2005, the 2013 festival, and that’s because we were in the hospital welcoming our first into the world.  Naturally a the nurses were raving about the lineup.  It’ll suck to miss 2020 because of this shit.  Fingers crossed.

Heard on the FM dial this morning that some management/industry group estimates 90% of independent venues will be closing permanently.

I've had tickets for a few shows at Moody Theater that have been rescheduled to 2021.  ACL Live has essentially been shutdown since March and likely won't host a single performance for the rest of the year.  Not sure how they're holding on.

I can’t believe Sammy Hagar is the same age as my dad.

Your comment made me look it up.  
 

He’s four years younger than Jagger.

It’s official.  ACL canceled.  

Not surprised, and it was the right call, but I'm still bummed.  It's one of my favorite weekends of the year.  Fuck you, COVID.

Already mentally prepared myself for this a while back. Couldn't see how it could possibly happen this year 😔

I have a feeling the lineup this year was going to be special. I hope it doesn’t leak.

It won't.  Out of their 20+ festivals, only two have a chance at happening in 2020.  Shoulda been a big clue that Live Nation furloughed 2/3 of their staff and didn't pay any of their rent since April.  However, a cool channel is coming down the pike where you can watch myriad artists intro their sets over the years over stages that grow from big to small and they end it all with a couple songs from their own residence 'zoom style'   About as close as we're gonna get to the festival experience. 

Literally, the very last thing...even after live sporting events...that will come back online in the U.S. will be live music festivals.  For so many reasons.  Tune into their streaming channel that's about to be deployed alongside another cool app here in Austin.

A covienience-19 fee?  I could see them pulling some shit like that.  

Fun fact, livenation has paid out $0 in rent since April on their hundreds of thousands of square footage nationwide.

Going to see Phil Lewis (L.A. Guns) play at Warehouse Live in Houston tonight. 

Been 6 months since I’ve seen a show.

How’s that going to work?

People showed up. Some drank beer. He came out onstage. Played guitar. Sang. 

Kinda like that.

Did an orgy break out?

If so, are there pics?  

But only the ones with hot ladies.  I don't want any franks and beans.  Also, nothing that looks like HBO's "Real Sex."
