Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced Friday that the government will allow “live indoor performances” beginning August 1st, six months after the Coronavirus pandemic shut down live entertainment.
Performers, audiences, and venues will be required to maintain all social distancing guidelines during the reopening. If the live indoor concerts go well without any spike in new cases, Johnson said “stadium shows, conferences, and other business events” will be allowed to resume in October.
Whereas concerts in the US may not return until 2022, indoor music venues in England are getting read to open their doors starting next month. https://t.co/Hfy5J6vxeU

In the meantime, work is that we are not getting live concerts back until 2022 because some of you still think you don’t need to wear a mask or, like the guy I saw in Costco yesterday, wear one, but have it pulled off your nose. Thanks a lot!
