If you have been living under a rock, the Coronavirus (or COVID-19) is a respiratory illness similar to the common cold which has not previously been identified in humans. Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.
Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.
Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
The spread of COVID-19 across the world has caused cancelled concerts from many performers in the industry.
This answer is unique for each individual artist. If the artist has rescheduled the show to a later date, you will be able to honor your ticket and seat at the new show.
If the artist has cancelled their tour date or the rescheduled date does not work for you, contact the place where you purchased your ticket for more information.
