The COVID-19 Coronavirus saw the postponement of gigs, concerts and live music. The short-term impact was inconvenient, to say the least, however, the long-term impact on the live music industry could be truly catastrophic. With fans turning their attention to streaming services, virtual concerts and online gigs, will fans ever return to the live music industry? Will they feel truly safe packed into the crowded arena? Will they be willing to pay the often exorbitant prices in order to watch their favourite band perform?
Legal streaming services marked a transformative change in the music industry, allowing breakthrough artists to sell their material whilst simultaneously making a name for themselves. Despite the many good aspects of legal streaming services, they are undoubtedly detrimental to the live entertainment eco-system. Live concerts brought in money to music venues, made money through selling merchandise and put iconic arenas on the map. The COVID-19 Coronavirus has hampered live music further, with even the most optimistic projections estimating it will be almost 2 years before large-scale concerts and gigs can return.
Like many other industries, live music is now reliant on their virtual counterparts. Live-streaming and pay-per-view gigs seem the only plausible solution to such a problem. Throughout lockdown, virtual concerts were incredibly popular, however, are they truly a longterm solution? Yes, it's somewhat intriguing that you can witness your favourite band performing from the comfort of your living room, but does it really match the adrenaline-fuelled experience of an in-person gig? Though Take That, Beyonce and Travis Scott all proved that Virtual Concerts can fundamentally work, the infrastructure is undoubtedly work in progress. Though A-List music icons can no doubt make virtual concerts work, without a live audience, virtual concerts are fundamentally unable to revive the live music industry.
'Compromise' and 'Adaption' have been words synonymous with the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Whilst not ideal, these attitudes will be essential in the revival of the music industry. Whether it'll be reduced capacity concerts, virtual gigs or geo-fencing tours, fans will have to be both patient and loyal to their industry. Whilst live music's revival is a thing for the future, it's essential for the research, ground-work and fundamentals to be tested as soon as possible.
