TL;DR After over a year of limited socializing, summer concerts are back! Check to see when and where your favorite artists are performing!
Ready to see your favorite band in person again? The wait is over; concerts are in full swing this summer. People are vaxxed and ready to mingle! Artists are starting to take the stage again to perform in front of live audiences now that the Covid-19 pandemic has thankfully slowed down. It may be a little challenging to get used to swarms of people in large and sweaty crowds initially, but concertgoers will get accustomed to their roots in no time.
Madison Square Garden kicked off its first reopening show on Sunday with the popular band, The Foo Fighters, and the crowds went absolutely crazy! It was the iconic venue’s first show in over 400 days due to the pandemic. The concert wasn’t without strict rules and regulations; those attending had to prove they were fully vaccinated. As things slowly start to warm back up, multiple artists have announced concert dates for the summer and later dates in 2021. Some that have made official announcements include Harry Styles, Maroon Five, One Republic, Luke Bryan, Green Day, Fall Out Boy, Chance the Rapper, and more.
This is such exciting news as things finally start to feel normal again. Concerts are a staple part of our culture and one of the main ways we socialize. It’s been hard to go without that for over a year now! We can’t wait to see all our favorite bands and solo singers performing on stage again. Who are you most looking forward to seeing? Let us know in the comments below!
