While many of us are dealing with the affects of the coronavirus pandemic on different levels, our music community got hit hard with a devastating blow to the live music and entertainment industry. Numbers are showing that close to 18,000 concerts and events have been either canceled or postponed.This has put music fans in an extremely uncertain situation where they still don't even know if some of their favorite shows or festivals are going to be canceled for good. People have already spent the money, and now with many people out of jobs, they could really use that money back.
As Billboard reports, ticket-holders should begin seeing emails from Ticketmaster regarding the policy on May 1st. Once a show has been rescheduled, fans will be presented with the new date and two options: request a refund within 30 days or, for Live Nation-promoted events, receive a 150% credit for the value of the ticket. If no action is taken, the ticket will be valid for the new concert date.
