Will Concerts Ever Go Back to Normal?
November 7, 2020
Many fans around the world are very eager to know when they will see their favorite artist,
Or even get to feel the excitement of going out with friends and having the best night of their lives. “2020 is gone and so is half of 2021”, says Gregg Perloff, CEO and founder of Another Planet Entertainment. Like most, before you can go out and enjoy your life again there will most likely have to be a vaccine to ensure that the thousands of fans at the concert are safe. If you do happen to go to a concert with a vaccine in plan for Covid-19, they are likely to be different. For example, Temperature checks, touchless ordering and hand-sanitizer stations could be the new norm for concerts and big events. Joe Berchtold, president of Live Nation Entertainment says that “The hope is that we will have a big summer season in 2021”.
As for concerts it’s the same for sports fans too, they are longing to return to the stands, but health experts say that stadiums are one of the highest risk areas for the coronavirus to spread. Although many sports teams have opened up their doors and are starting to let fans in, with restrictions there is still a high risk that the coronavirus will spread. We all love concerts and sports and of course want to cheer on our favorite team or artist, but there is no say in when life will completely go back to normal. For now, there are virtual concerts that some artists hold for a small cost of only $5-10 and as for football or any other sport, you can tune in on tv and watch from your couch at home.
