Everyone always asks us when concerts are going to come back in Western New York. As you know, it is such a delicate question to answer. Concert promoters all over the country are wanting to bring concerts back, but of course in a safe manor.
That being said, New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo has said that outdoor concerts CAN happen, but only at 20% capacity and you have to get a COVID test beforehand. This is only for outdoor venues with capacities of 2,500 or larger.
Things seem to be going great regarding the COVID rates and the amount of people that are getting vaccinated in the State of New York. Over 25% of the population in Erie County have been vaccinated, which seems to be improving the overall COVID rate. The State says that if the numbers continue to do well, they will re-evaluate the situation in mid-May.
Although, we have not heard much in regards on protocol of bringing a negitive COVID test in order to attend. What if they sold out a concert in 2020 that has been rescheduled for 2021, but now can only have 20%? These questions still seem to be unanswered.
In the meantime, a TON of concerts have been cancelled in Western New York, but there are some concerts that are being put on by Live Nation and AEG that are still active, on the books and tickets are being sold.
Here are the 4 shows that are still on the schedule. You can click on the concerts below to check out ticket prices.
