Concert promoters and music industry professionals are working around the clock to find new ways to bring back live entertainment. A new article in The Mirror highlights some innovative and interesting ways venues may work to make concerts safer.
The report points out that devices will be placed at the entrance of venues to spray concert goers with a “mist” that will supposedly disenfect them.
The report indicates that concerts may resume this fall, in 30 percent capacity, also in addition to being misted, fans will likely be asked to don masks to limit the spread of this virus.
Craig Hassall, the CEO of Royal Albert Hall said, “The test case in Seoul – where a Phantom of the Opera production has continued running – has seen audience members walking through a light mist of disinfectant, having their temperature taken, and filling in a questionnaire about their symptoms and recent places they’ve visited,”
He added: “If we’re to find a solution, it is going to be a combination of numerous measures, from increased access points to hand sanitizers, Perspex screens and PPE for staff.”
“We do believe that 2021 could be busy across all the arenas because many tours are being postponed, but this doesn’t help our situation now where there is absolutely no income to our venues,” added Lucy Noble of the National Arena Association. “We are at serious risk.”
