Since March 2020, live concerts have been shattered after the COVID-19 pandemic started. These events weren’t held anymore due to fear of the spread of this coronavirus. Some concerts have returned since the summer with rappers performing at nightclubs but as far as far as arenas and stadiums holding them, that sadly hasn’t happened yet.
Fans are waiting for the return of huge festivals such as Rolling Loud, Coachella, and more. Many wonder when this can happen and now, Dr. Anthony Fauci has some answers for us. According to the New York Times, Fauci says that the US population would have to be 75-80% vaccinated and continue to wear masks. This also applies for the return of theater performances. Theaters with good ventilation and air filters could return to full capacity as well. The Pfizer and Moderna COVID vaccines have been distributed but have been moving slower than expected regarding the rollout.
“If everything goes right, this is will occur some time in the fall of 2021, so that by the time we get to the early to mid-fall, you can have people feeling safe performing onstage as well as people in the audience,” Fauci said.
Fauci added that venues should require negative test results for spectators to get in. Ticketmaster has already discussed making this happen as well. Overall, Fauci thankfully remains optimistic.
“We’ll be back in the theaters — performers will be performing, audiences will be enjoying it,” Fauci explained. “It will happen.”
