With more and more live events, festivals and concert tours cancelling or postponing over fears of the coronavirus, major promoters Live Nation and AEG have stepped up and hit pause on everything.

As the promoters of many shows and events across the country, the two concert giants united with major booking agencies including Paradigm and CAA to announce a unified front in pushing back all live events until further notice.

“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,” the joint statement reads. “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.”
