In light of the unknown and rapid spread of COVID-19 artists like Billie Eilish, who has postponed her ‘WHERE DO WE GO’ North American tour with makeup days unknown, and Latin superstar Gloria Trevi announced today that her “La Diosa de La Noche” tour will also take a hiatus. This is a rapid increasing trend as people scramble to make accommodations in light of the epidemic.
The Go-Go’s Kathy Valentine also postponed her book tour for her forthcoming memoir, “All I Ever Wanted” which chronicles her life in the first multi-platinum-selling, all-female band to play instruments themselves, write their own songs, and have a number one album.
Meanwhile Latin music powerhouses Alejandro Sanz and Juanes joined forces to perform a streaming jam session for fans who were stuck at home due to the virus. Within 24 hours the video was viewed over five million times on Youtube.
Juanes, Alejandro Sanz, and the team at Miami Art House encourage additional artists to create similar events in order to keep fans around the world engaged with live music during COVID 19 precautionary measures during the coming weeks. They also look forward to the time in the hopeful near future when they can connect once again in large-scale live music gatherings.
Stay safe everyone!
