Q4, Redux: Still hopeful that @billyjoel doesn't cancel his Aug. 15 show in Buffalo. But social distancing in a 70,000-seat stadium is going to be difficult. #SoldOut #JandoliChat— David K. (@redleader57) May 12, 2020
Q4, the sequel: Not forever. Live music means too much to too many &, as mentioned, it's a vital source of income for musicians. But it will take a long time to recover. #JandoliChat— Carole McNall (@carolemcnall) May 12, 2020
A4: From Nicolas Coyne: I can't speak from an expert's point of view, but I'd hope and believe there's a path back to live concerts in the future, with precautions. #JandoliChat— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
A4: I think we’ll find a way to re-create some of that excitement virtually. I know it sounds far-fetched, but we’ve adapted to so many changes already. #JandoliChat— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
A4: Hard to tell if they’re gone forever, but I don’t see any feasible way they could be back soon. That’ll put continued financial strain on artists. But we’re already seeing virtual shows via gaming platforms & apps like Stageit in addition to social livestreams. #JandoliChat https://t.co/p8ApW6lJyI— Patrick Hosken (@patrickhosken) May 12, 2020
I'm late, but in many ways, seeing artists perform now, at home or in a small studio, is MORE intimate. You can hear the words. You can see the faces. You feel like they're singing just to you. Zoom concerts do give fans the chance to see other faces, without the distractions.— Amber Healy (@AmberMHealy) May 13, 2020
A4: Musicians seem to understand that things must be taken slow. I would love to see a “drive-in” show, but as far as a return to normal? I agree with the year halt. When you are able to see your favorite band again, it will make it all the better. #Jandolichat https://t.co/BrzIqjd5Fl— Stephen Wilt (@stephen_wilt) May 12, 2020
