Live Nation, AEG, CAA, WME, Paradigm and UTA have issued the following joint statement, regarding tour postponement due to coronavirus concerns:

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 task force includes Michael Rapino (CEO and President, Live Nation Entertainment), Dan Beckerman (President and CEO, AEG & Board Member, ASM Global), Jay Marciano (Chairman and CEO, AEG Presents), Rob Light (Managing Partner and Head of the Music Division, CAA), Marc Geiger (Partner and Head of Music, WME), Sam Gores (Chairman, Paradigm), Marty Diamond (Head of Global Music, Paradigm), and David Zedeck (Global Head Of Music, UTA).

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.

According to a NY Times report on 3/12, Live Nation and AEG have suspended all of their current tours in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Tours presented by both companies will supposedly pause starting this weekend, staying off the road through the end of March, and the situation will be re-evaluated in early April. Stay tuned for official announcements from each touring artist regarding specific dates.
