The Symphony Returns

Concerts across Southern California begin to resume as life inches back to normal


   As concert-goers scrolled through Instagram and pushed the boundaries of the internet this year, hoping to find the next concert date, they simply encountered a list of events that were postponed due to COVID-19. Recently, however, artists have announced a return to live music in California, just in time for summer.

   With COVID cases in Southern California slowly decreasing, Governor Gavin Newsom has announced a gradual reopening of various concerts, with safety measures in place. These live-audience concerts range from Los Angeles to Irvine to Riverside County.

   Specific concerts making their returns include the Fallout Boy, Green Day, and Weezer trio as part of the Hella Mega Tour, taking place on July 17th at Dodger Stadium, the Hard Summer music festival taking place July 31st-August 1st in San Bernardino, and a Guns N’ Roses performance on August 19th at the Banc of California Stadium.

   Other summer and early-autumn concerts include performances by Chicago on June 12th and by 5 Seconds of Summer on June 25th, assuming that Irvine’s FivePoint Amphitheatre remains open through summer.

   No matter which approach artists and local officials choose to take in regards to reopening, music lovers can rejoice in the shared thrill of watching their favorite bands perform once again.
