2021: The Hope for Concerts

As most of you are aware, the world is opening back up. Which is great, as long as people get their vaccinations. If you truly don’t believe in it, you do you, but just remember the world will be harder to open back up if people don’t. There’s a reason why “The Plague” hasn’t truly come back to life. Science and vaccinations have come a long way.

What does that mean for live music. Well, things are still up in the air. In a lot of ways, people are booking tours and concerts for this summer and fall, but every state, city, and county are doing it differently. So be prepared for some of the following:

Covid Passports: Whether you agree with it or not, Covid Passports might actually become a thing. Meaning, like you carry around your license, same way you carry around your wallet.

Less lights, sound and action: A lot of vendors took a big hit, and it cost A LOT of money to put on these concert. Expect possibly smaller “action” shows… or maybe not I could totally be wrong. I guess we shall see what the vendors do and how much they will charge for equipment.

Venue capacity: This will be tricky, I’m not exactly sure what venues are going to do. I’ve heard several rumors we are supposed to be up in running at full capacity by July. Does that mean it will happen… I don’t know. Everything is so up in the air, I’m not exactly sure, I just know that people want to get back to work and people are doing whatever they can to go back to work.

Different protocol: I do not expect things to go back to normal. It would be very strange if they just went straight back to normal. Just be prepared when you go to a show, that some things may be different.
