In a March 12 statement, concert promoters Live Nation and AEG, along with Creative Artists Agency (CAA), William Morris Endeavor (WME), Paradigm, and United Talent Agency (UTA), released the following statement: "The world’s leading forces in live entertainment have come together to form a global task force to drive strategic support and unified direction ensuring precautionary efforts and ongoing protocol are in the best interest of artists, fans, staff, and the global community. At this time, we collectively recommend large scale events through the end of March be postponed. We continue to support that small-scale events follow guidance set by their local government officials. We feel fortunate to have the flexibility to reschedule concerts, festivals, and live events as needed, and look forward to connecting fans with all their favorite artists and live entertainment soon."
Looks like Missouri residents will get to enjoy concert season. Under the state’s Recovery Plan, Missouri Governor Mike Parson will allow public events like concerts to resume Monday, May 4th. “Events such as amusement parks and attractions, concerts, drive-ins, funerals, museums and school graduations” may all resume “but seating shall be spaced out according to social distancing requirements.” While the Governor may give permission, many of Missouri’s cities are making the decision to remain in lockdown, with St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson saying in a statement “We will continue to be guided by data, not by dates.”
