Weekly survey: How long to you think it’ll be before we get back to normal with concerts after COVID-19?

We’re in full-wartime mode when it comes to the coronavirus with all indications pointing towards things getting more dire before they get better. Closures, social distancing, self-isolation, hoarding, whole industries in deep, deep trouble. It’s ugly. There are exhortations for something to be done about the creative arts, too.

But unless we’re living inside a Stephen King-esque universe, this will pass and life will return to normal. When? Not sure. We can only speculate–so let’s do that.

Here’s the weekly survey question: How long do you think it’ll be before the concert and festival scene gets back to normal after COVID-19?

    As a non-twitter person, I vote a year. I have some pretty big shows this year. A couple are once in a lifetime shows and I can’t see those not being cancelled outright or turned into something so far into the future… My concert life which I was stressed over (too many!) but excited for (so many!) is what keeps me upright. The future looks bleak.
