Live Nation Expects “Shows At Scale” to Return Next Summer

Recommended Posts

Live Nation is optimistic that live music will return next summer in full force.

Despite the mass cancellation of shows, tours and festivals due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino expects a “robust outdoor summer season.” He says fans can look forward to “shows at scale next summer.”

Rapino continues, “From venue sanitation procedures to fan-friendly policies and on ticket purchases and the latest testing options, we are setting standards that will give the fans, crews and artists peace of mind before, during and after the show.”

Despite Live Nation’s 95.1% drop in third quarter revenue — from $3.77 billion to $184 million — he says future events like Download and Isle of Wight are pacing ahead in sales.

Rapino admits, however, “the path to live [music] will not be a straight line.” In the coming months and perhaps years, Live Nation must “maintain flexibility and focus on innovating.”

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
