The post COVID-19 entertainment world is going to adapt to the new health rules. After several artists like Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, Lady Gaga and Foo Fighters canceled their world tours, this is how the first concert was held in England. Young musician Sam Fender, energized by 2500 socially-distanced fans, performed chart-topping numbers from his debut album, "Hypersonic Missiles".
Every ticket was purchased online, signing agreements to attend, being monitored and interacting with the staff members. Temperature was measured at the entrance, and they were socially-distanced in separate metal platforms for groups up to 5 people.
“It’s not going to be the same as the concerts we normally have, but we got to do what we can do”, exclaimed Fender. Everybody had to wear face masks. Live performance have been a significant part of England’s culture.
The world’s first socially-distanced concert is a ray of hope during the coronavirus pandemic, as people gathered under the canopy of the ‘new normal’ to help and support the music industry and its artists.
