You know when things you learned in school become useful in real life - this is one of those times ... there's a huge demand for live music by fans and concert promoters and bands know it and will supply an emormous amount of concerts in 2021 and 2022 ... concert giants Live Nation have gone as far as to say that they already have booked more shows in 2022 than they did in all of the pre-pandemic year of 2019.
Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino revealed during a call with investors:
“Around the world, people are showing the need to get out and socialize once again which reinforces our expectation that a return to concerts will be the logical progression as vaccines are readily available to everyone who wants to get one ... This is generally already the case in the U.S. where we are confidently planning our reopenings, particularly for outdoor shows, and we expect many of our other major markets will follow this summer.”
“We are already seeing confirmed major tour dates for 2022 up double digits from the same time pre-pandemic in 2019 for 2020 ... Many of these artists will have multi-year tours, spanning the U.S., Europe and often either Asia or Latin America, setting us up for a strong multi-year growth run.”
Of all the shows already announced for 2021 and 2022 - what ones are you most looking forward to?
