COVID is on the rise along with the Delta variant.
The result is not good for live performances. Foo Fighters have just canceled their show set for July 17th at the Los Angeles Forum. The group says they’re canceling because someone in their organization tested positive for COVID. Who exactly isn’t specified, but now everyone has to be careful.
The sad irony here is that the Foos re-opened Madison Square Garden last month with the first new show in over 14 months. It was a big celebration of the end of COVID. And now they’d been hit with it.
In New York, the Governor’s Ball — set for a three day weekend in September — is having trouble with slow sales. They’re hitting social media like crazy to sell individual day tickets for the Friday and Sunday, on which Billie Eilish and Post Malone are the main stars at CitiField. Only Saturday is sold out. Fans are not convinced about being in large crowds. CitiField capacity is 45,000.
Please, everyone, get vaccinated!
