Whether or not you know someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus strain COVID-19, there’s no denying the impact the pandemic is having all over the world. Still, many Americans are wondering exactly how many precautions to take.
Many organizations, music festivals, and awards shows have either been canceled or postponed due to coronavirus concerns. The same goes for movie premieres, as well as production schedules for TV and film. Below, a list of all the major pop-culture entities that have been affected by coronavirus.
A Ton of Concerts
My Chemical Romance, Cher, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Ciara, BTS, Avril Lavigne, Pentatonix, Green Day, and more have begun canceling shows and rescheduling tours. “I AM SO SORRY, BUT YOUR HEALTH IS PARAMOUNT,” Cher tweeted. “CONCERTS R AMAZING FUN, BUT NOTHING IS WORTH YOUR HEALTH.”

Coachella and Stagecoach
“At the direction of the County of Riverside and local health authorities, we must sadly confirm the rescheduling of Coachella and Stagecoach due to COVID-19 concerns,” reads a statement from Goldenvoice, the production company that runs both festivals. “While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, staff, and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.” Coachella will now happen in October.
