Thought this new interview was pretty interesting. Reading between the lines, no OBH for quite a while. It'll be weird to see what a tour is like ...

2022 earliest for an OBH, which would require a well distributed vaccine by early-mid 2021.  standard domestic touring won't happen until a vaccine is out either, and will be impacted by data and resurgence.  It's going to be touchy for a while
What's in here won't disappear

Right there with you Justin.

We have a close family friend who is a tour manager and works under the Live Nation umbrella. He's been told not to expect any tours for at least another year here in the States.

He does a lot of touring in Europe and LN thinks he could be back to work a bit sooner but it's still too early to say with any real confidence.

Your point on the vaccine is a good one. Without one, a lot of people won't feel comfortable being in crowds and I'm sure a lot of States won't be lifting their restrictions on large gatherings.
