Australians could attend music concerts towards the end of spring – but more fans will have to get the Covid vaccine before there are stadium shows on the scale of live sports

Australians could attend music concerts towards the end of spring if fan vaccination rates are high enough.

According to the Herald Sun, promoters are trying to convince governments to get the live entertainment industry back on track by allowing crowds equal to those at concerts as they do at sporting events.

Guns N’ Roses are already booked to perform in six stadiums from November 6, and KISS are set to kick off their tour in Perth on November 14.

But Evelyn Richardson, CEO of Live Performance Australia, said the shows will only go ahead if vaccination rates are high enough.

“If we want to keep our theater and auditorium doors open and see our favorite artists on stage, the most important thing we can do now is get vaccinated,” Ms Richardson said.

“Not only will it keep our communities, families, friends and colleagues safe, it will ensure the future of our industry.”

She continued, “Don’t wait. Do it now so we can welcome the world’s biggest acts back to the country they love to come and perform.”

My Chemical Romance will also perform in Australia in March 2022, marking their first tour Down Under in over a decade.

The rock band from New Jersey will perform at the Brisbane Entertainment Center on Monday, March 14.

They will then head to Melbourne on Thursday 17th March for a concert at the Rod Laver Arena, followed by the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney on Saturday 19th March.

The group was forced to cancel their 2020 tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.
