Take heart, music fans: The shows will return, virus permitting

Here are the major shows scheduled — or, in most cases, rescheduled — over the next 365 days in the Seattle-Everett-Tacoma metro area.

The pandemic has been hard on musicians and music lovers alike.

With gatherings of more than a handful of people off-limits, we’ve had to resort to live-streaming events. And we’ve discovered, or perhaps been reminded, that the virtual is a poor substitute for the authentic.

A host of major concerts were canceled — sorry, Sammy Hagar and Night Ranger fans.

But take heart: In the spirit of optimism that this plague will eventually subside, many shows have been rescheduled for the coming year. What follows is a list of the major shows scheduled — or, in most cases, rescheduled — over the next 365 days in the Seattle-Everett-Tacoma metro area.

As we’ve been saying since March, all of the planned events are contingent on whether the county where they take place is approved to enter the corresponding phase of Gov. Jay Inslee’s four-phase reopening plan. Events may be canceled or postponed. Check with each venue for the latest information.

In other words, if we’re not in Phase 4, kiss these concerts goodbye — again.

And what about the big show at Angel of the Winds Arena in Everett: Cher’s “Here We Go Again” tour, postponed from Oct. 12? Promoters say it’s going to happen, but the new date has yet to be determined.
