The website added “Consistent with the recent announcement from the ‘Live Entertainment Industry Taskforce’ about this unprecedented situation and the volume of affected events, major promoters such as LNE and AEG, have asked us to give them some time to work through rescheduling options before refunds are universally offered”.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that no gatherings with 50 people or more take place for the next eight weeks to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The agency said these gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings and other types of assemblies.

“Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities,” the CDC said in its new guidelines.

The CDC recommended organizers “cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.” The recommendation does not apply to some organizations like schools or businesses.
