Weekly survey: Have you bought any concert tickets for 2022 yet?

Some friends were over for dinner on the weekend. At one point in the evening, the conversation turned to a discussion on our attitudes of re-integrating into society in a post-COVID world.

“Who’s got tickets for any upcoming concerts?” I asked. Although no one put up their hand, everyone had shows they hoped to see, ranging from club shows to a Boston stop on the upcoming Paul McCartney tour to (perhaps) even going to Glastonbury in June. The enthusiasm was there, but no one had pulled the trigger yet.

Here’s the weekly survey question: With COVID restrictions falling all over the country (and the world, in fact), have you laid down any cash for any kind of live music event yet?

  • Dozens! But not big shows. Massey hall and all the community theatres yes but not a chance at venues of more than 5000.

  • Just saw Superchunk last weekend! Got tickets to see Afghan Whigs in May! Thinking about going to see Belle & Sebastian in June.

    I’m stuck in the 90’s and I don’t care!!!!!!!
