Re: Atlanta postpond to March 2022?

If Ticketmaster says it's a dummy date, it probably is a dummy date. Ticketmaster Finland has - probably for technical reasons - placed "dummy dates" for at least two concerts that were postponed due to COVID-19: Santana and KISS. Both events have the same "dummy date" of December 31, 2020...at the same arena. winking smiley

So that March 2022 date likely doesn't mean anything.

Everything has been completely turned upside down and yes, the loss of the tour was a huge disappointment.

If Covid-19 hadn't happened I would have caught 2 Stones shows, The Stephen Stills/Neil Young Autism benefit and I would be on the Ben Harper tour right now.

Instead I just bought a new offset smoker bbq with the money not spent.

Rosanne Cash tweeted this story out yesterday along with a request for people to sign a petition against it.
"It's unconscionable for Live Nation to put the onus on artists for gigs that are cancelled because of the pandemic.
You can sign a petition in opposition and I hope you will" [twitter.com]


Live Nation Wants Artists to Take Pay Cuts and Cancelation Burdens for Shows in 2021
In a memo obtained by Rolling Stone, Live Nation cites “unprecedented times” and “the exponential rise of certain costs” as reasons for adjusting payment policies

There’s still no telling when music venues will be able to reopen their doors to large crowds of concertgoers, and Live Nation — the largest live events company in North America — is making changes seemingly in reaction to the uncertainty. In a recent memo obtained by Rolling Stone, the company told its talent partners that it plans to make an array of alterations for concerts and festivals held in 2021.

Most of the new policies shift financial burdens to artists: For example, the company wants to decrease the monetary guarantees promised to artists before an event by 20% across the board. Live Nation also says that if a concert is cancelled due to poor ticket sales, it will give artists 25% of the guarantee (as opposed to the 100% that promoters are currently expected to pay). Moreover, if an artist cancels a performance in breach of the agreement, the artist will pay the promoter two times the artist’s fee — a type of penalty that, as Billboard notes, is unheard of in the live music industry.

“We are fully aware of the significance of these changes, and we did not make these changes without serious consideration,” Live Nation wrote. The company did not respond to request for comment.

Live Nation / Ticketb*stard should go forth and reproduce! Not content with ripping punters off with add-on fees for a computer generated ticket selling process, now they want to rip off the artists too. I hope they go out of business.

Reality has really set in today. Greg would be flying in from Syracuse any day now and we would be getting ready for the July 5th show in Tampa. Had great seats 3 rows up at the corner of the stage on Keith’s side.
Instead I’m laying in bed with the Corona virus. What the @#$%& happened to our world. How could we ever let it get this bad in the USA. I guess I never knew that I was living among millions of people that don’t have the common sense to show even a little respect for a pandemic that could kill us.
I can only say this to everyone reading this thread. If you are not in the US don’t come here it’s not safe. If you are already here stay home and be safe.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I was also scheduled to go to Tampa and Atlanta. I live in Florida. You are 100% right with what you're saying. It's getting very bad here and like you I don't know how we could have let it get this bad. On second thought, I do know what contributed to it getting this bad. I hope you recover quickly. Hugs.

Lougio, we hope you a complete recovery with little to no damage to your lungs. We've been on Shelter-In-Place here in Oakland, Ca. for 107 days. Most of "us" in the bay area and Northern California being considerate of each other we were doing well. Then all hell broke loose (for good reason) and with things opening up, we're "spiking" upward. We'll just have to start over, @#$%&. We'll see.

Lougio, I hope you recover ok too. My daughter and I were supposed to fly from San Diego to Tampa tomorrow, I was taking her to her first Stones concert, Pit tickets on Ronnie's side! We were going to watch fireworks from my friend's house in Largo, and go to the Dali Museum on the 6th. Holding on to our tickets still and SW Airlines has extended credit until Sept. 2022.

We are neighbors. The SF Bay Area has generally done the right thing. Still an issue here despite the efforts.

They have been overpaying artists the past 2 decades because they need acts to play their venues and festivals, now reality is setting in. Most acts were all too happy to help Live Nation become a monopoly by taking these inflated paychecks and now this is one of the consequences. Now the acts don't have to play Live Nation events, assuming their are any independent venues left.
