Live Nation, one of the world’s biggest concert promoters, is postponing all its tours due to the coronavirus outbreak, reports say.
Now, Billboard reports that, as of this weekend, all of Live Nation’s current tours are set to be stopped.
The report reveals that the company told its employees today (March 12) that, due to large gatherings being forbidden in many parts of the world at the moment, all current touring arena shows in March are being postponed, though “some select shows” will still be held over the next few days. No details of these specific shows are known yet.
It’s said that the current ban applies to the remainder of March, with Live Nation set to review the decision at the start of April, with hopes to resume tours in May and June.
Artists including Avril Lavigne, The Who, Green Day, Pearl Jam, My Chemical Romance, Madonna and Foals have all cancelled or postponed upcoming shows in the last few days due to the coronavirus outbreak.
