Coronavirus (COVID-19) shutting down the world and now concerts and more at the LCA in 2020

What started out in China has spread to 107 countries and has recently hit the United States. While doing so it has prompted high alert throughout the state. As things began to close one by one it was a matter of time for the trickle affect to hit hard. As so with concerts as Live Nation and AEG Presents. will pause all major tours through April. 2020 was supposed to be the year of the concerts, not anymore. LCA or Little Caesars Arena has already cancelled the Zac Brown Band and recently Blake Shelton, and Billie Eilish as of today 3-12-2020. Also scheduled for the LCA is Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out Live” tour on March 19th and no word as of yet if that will be cancelled. This is a temporary ban on big gatherings to help slow the virus and not have it spread to the elderly or already sick people whatever the case maybe it’s all about safety. Billie Eilish was to have played the venue for the third time already and doing so by the age of eighteen.

Also postponed was a first for the LCA as the men’s college hockey Frozen Four was scheduled for April 9-11. Also just down the street at the smaller venue the world famous historic Fox Theater Little Big Town “Nightfall Tour” was cancelled. WWE Smackdown event set for this Friday was also moved for health concerns. Let’s also add that the Pistons who played Utah just ten days ago at LCA learned that a Utah Jazz player tested positive for the virus, that night the NBA halted operations which lead to other leagues doing the same. Things are going to get worse before they get better, and no one has a answer for that. Until then, you know what you have to do so Follow It! The steps are that easy. With sports, and shows, being cancelled and possibly a stay at home precaution measure down the road what is there left to do. Kick back and listen to your favs on streaming or your Spotify and take a trip down memory lane till we get the all clear. 2020 will be back. Stay Safe Folks.
