“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. 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.”Tours, including those led by Jason Aldean, Cher, Kiss, Post Malone, Tool, Lynard Skynyrd, Chris Stapleton, Third Eye Blind, Nick Cannon, and Against Me! are among those expected to be affected. The announcement could also risk a Detroit appearance by teen titan and alt-pop superstar Billie Eilish, who was expected to perform at Little Caesars Arena on March 23 as part of her Where Do We Go? world tour. The Detroit performance, as with most of her tour, which kicked off in Miami on Monday night, is sold out.
