I have tickets to two Rage against the machine shows in July 2021, Detroit and Toronto.

What's everybody think, are these shows going to happen or will Covid ruin 2021 too.

Covid, minus vacine is 5 years before stabalization UNLESS they close the border for a month.

Not a chance. Elton John just rescheduled the rest of his farewell tour and the new dates are starting in January with two shows in Toronto in February. What is this guy thinking?

It will take a minimum of 6 months after a vaccine is approved to get it out in quantity. And then it will depend on which one as some will be better than others because of adjusting for different health levels

So unless they all hit by Xmas it's highly doubtful.

And the vacine, while possible is still a lottery ticket. The side effect, if they vacine this it will also work on colds. So the cold virus will cease to exist. But that been around for thousands of years . . .

We're not going to get a very effective vaccine for covid. People hoping for one are literally dreaming.

But hey, hope (even false hope) is a powerful drug (and tool of manipulation).

How about we reduce it so we can open normally. Thats a start.

Just going with your view, getting a vaccine out in January plus the six months makes June, maybe we could get back to our normal next June.

As I said. Minimum 6 months from what I've read to get enough doses manufactured. Then you have to get them to the public. And remember its actually more than one needed. Immune compromised need weaker two shot vs one shot for the populace. And the better ones take longer.

I remain hopeful but I I'm fully prepared for a year.

I didn't know they were even still together.
Big tour planned for summer 2020 that has been moved to 2021...with the ban on crowds the live entertainment industry was the first to get hit and will probably be the last to come back.

Thankfully we've they're getting a very effective vaccine into people's arms now. They figure we need 80% of the population vaccinated to reach herd immunity. What's going to prolong the pandemic and the numbers of COVID patients in hospitals is those who refuse to get it, for whatever reason.

Ticket prices $179-$3,123 each!

List of reasons why I rarely go to live concerts anymore:

1) Ticket prices for a name act. Back in the day, I saw David Bowie twice for $16, (1976 & 78), Bruce Springsteen & the E Street band twice for under $20, (1978 and 81), Queen and Thin Lizzy together for $7.50, and The Who from the front row, in their first 'farewell tour', (1980, for about ten bucks), among others, and these performers were all under 30 and creative the first time I saw them, other than The Who. I don't want to see pensioner aged fossils playing 40+ year old songs for hundreds of dollars. Take The Eagles, for example. Don Henley is the only original member left. 'Well I've been running down the road, tryin' to loosen my load, I've got Met-a-mucil on my mind'.

2) None of the current popular artists appeal to me. As a hard and fast rule, I would never pay money to see a concert by a performer who has backup dancers on stage.

3) You can't smoke weed or hashish at concerts anymore. Back in the day, you could always see at least 10 lighters flicking on every second of the entire show for a 'hockey arena' band. The last time I toked at a show was Television at The Danforth Music Hall in 1992. People around us looked at us strangely, but didn't say anything.

Nightclub shows are more my speed, even if the band isn't as good. The Mod Club on College, east of Ossington, is one of the better venues in which I've seen live music. Without question the worst was Larry's Hideaway, where I saw Billy Bragg in 1985 or 1986.

Mod club was great, unfortunately it's no more...
