So I’m noticing nowadays that live music is starting to make a comeback finally. Only for the states that allow it and it’s looking like Gov. Cuomo is gonna bring back live music in NY later this month. He’s bringing back 100% full capacity in everything in this state which is about time really.
Already, I’m seeing a lot of bands & artists releasing their 2021 tour dates for this Spring/Summer. Sadly, they can’t tour every state ’cause a lot of states will be under strict lockdowns and strict protocols still. That’s because those states have a Democrat governor. States with a Republican governor opened almost everything up.
As soon as some states allowing live music, it’s no surprise to see that bands & music artists are already going out there. I can’t blame them, ya know? Musicians and bands can’t be staying home. This is what they’re supposed to be doing… playing music in front of crowds.
With live music coming back to NY state this summer, I would like to go to a national concert myself like maybe at Spac or the Times Union Center if I find a show I wanna go. I found out that Trey Anastasio booked a 3 night solo acoustic show at SPAC in Saratoga Springs, I’ll probably end up going to that one. I want to go to a live concert to celebrate the return of live music.
It’s great that live music is coming back this year but I hope the mask mandate gets dropped soon ’cause I can’t see myself wearing a mask at a concert for 3 or 4 hours. I’ll have a rant about the mask thing in another topic.
Anyhow, it’s great that live music is returning. They’re dying to get back out there and I can’t blame them for wanting to get right back out as long as they were allowed to. Many of them hated staying home, they really did.
I haven’t been to a national concert in a long time myself. Last one I been to was Metallica, Lamb of God, Volbeat way back in 2009. I’m not a big concert goer anymore like I used to be.
