I think this business of pushing all 2020 dates into 2021 is wishful thinking at best. Is there any sign the virus is under control? Until a vaccine is approved, social distancing and facemasks are going to be the norm.

My guess is that we'd be very lucky if a vaccine was approved and everybody that wants/needs it gets it by the end of 2021.

I would tend to doubt that a 2021 touring schedule will end up looking much like 2019.

I think they're just rescheduling as many shows to next year as possible because they don't know what else to do.

I would only be speculating, but if you cancel I would assume immediate full refunds would be required. If you postpone then the promoter gets to hold on to the ticket money in the hope the show goes ahead at a later date.

Oct. 24 -- Del Mar, CA -- Del Mar Fairgrounds, Concerts in Your Car drive-in show
Oct. 25 -- Phoenix, AZ -- Arizona State Fairgrounds, Concerts in Your Car drive-in show



It'll be interesting to see how guidelines for those shows are enforced.

Earlier in the thread I posted some pics of a "drive in" Chainsmokers concert where people just got out of their cars and congregated near the stage (many without masks) not much unlike a regular concert:

http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,25781.msg663370.html#msg663370

If people are allowed to not only get out of their cars, but roam around freely, and rules aren't enforced, then even these "drive in" concerts aren't safe.

The concert industry is facing a similar issue to movie theaters. *All* potential customers have to rely on others to follow the rules and take things seriously, and unfortunately many people still don't. Further, it is often folks who don't take things seriously (either out of old fashioned ignorance or due to specifically being stubborn and thinking COVID is a hoax, or have turned mask wearing into a stupid political argument, etc.) who are most likely to attend these types of public gatherings that are of questionable safety.

It's not surprising that you're exponentially more likely to be around people who don't take COVID seriously when you attend a concert or movie theater right now.

Another HUGE problem for both concert venues and movie theaters is their reliance on concession revenue. Selling food and drink at these events undoes most if not all of the safety measures in place as far as mask-wearing. You're "allowed" to take your mask off if you're eating or drinking, and many folks nurse their beer and nachos for the full two hours of a concert or movie.

The movie theater industry is just kind of trying to ignore the incompatibility of mandatory mask-wearing and allowing masks to be removed to eat and drink. I mean, it's better than nothing if people wear their mask headed into the venue.

Outdoor concerts don't have as bad of a ventilation issue as movie theaters, that's about the only thing they have going for that industry. But the window for good weather for outdoor shows is narrowing. Same thing is going to happen to outdoor dining when the weather becomes an issue.

FWIW, here's a link to the promoter's PR statement:
https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/cbf-productions-aims-to-transform-fairgrounds-nationwide-into-audience-safe-drive-in-concert-venues-301131879.html

And here's what they say about setup and protocols for these shows:

Quote
To offer a safe and enjoyable experience, Concerts in Your Car are following the CDC and State of California Guidelines, and working with local States and Counties to ensure each event meets or exceeds all recommended standards. All event staff will be wearing required PPE (personal protective equipment). During the concert, attendees are asked to stay inside their vehicle to view the performers from the stage or on the giant screens. All guests that exit their vehicle must wear a mask or face covering and remain next to their vehicle, and no more than two guests per vehicle can leave to use the restroom at the same time.

Event tickets are priced per car, per section "ring" and available in advance only. Movie tickets are general admission and vehicles will be placed on a first come, first served basis to an assigned parking space.

Pretty much a given that ‘Drive In’ will make the set lists for these shows., surely.

It does make sense that California gigs would have hopefully more strict guidelines.

It'll be interesting to see pics/footage roll in of these shows and see if people actually all stay in their vehicles.

There's a new article about M&B's Tuacahn Center shows, confirming that they will be taking place.

Nov. 5-6 -- Ivins, UT -- Tuacahn Center for the Arts

‘A very eclectic vision of concerts’: Live entertainment returns to Tuacahn this fall

https://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/archive/2020/09/23/avm-spc-a-very-eclectic-vision-of-concerts-live-entertainment-returns-to-tuacahn-this-fall/

"Keeping safety in mind, Tuacahn has been working closely with county and state officials to create enhanced protocols. Additional entrances and exits will be available to prevent crowding at the main gate, and hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the property, along with social distancing signage. Masks are required for all Tuacahn employees and audience members."
