Live Nation and My Chemical Romance are betting on Australian borders to be reopened by March with a major arena tour set for 2022.
With international tours still questionable because of the now extended quarantine, the My Chemical Romance tour is indeed a gamble.
Australian tours for Kiss and Guns N’ Roses are still scheduled for November despite the Australian governments inability to manage the Covid vaccine program schedule. Originally, Australians were told that everybody who wanted to be vaccinated would be by the end of October. That has now blown out well into the next year with the government now not welling to even take a guess on when it may be achieved.
In New South Wales, Premier Gladys Berejiklian has stated that she wants international travel to resume in her state once we have 70% of the adult population vaccinated. According to the Australian Government’s website 1,097,515 vaccines have been administered in New South Wales since 22 February. The population of New South Wales is 8.1 million. At the current rate, New South Wales, let alone other states, will not reach the 70% reopening figure until mid 2022.
International tours dependent on a more flexible Australia travel ruling include Kiss (November 2021), Guns N’ Roses (November 2021), Alanis Morissette (November 2021), Simple Minds (December 2021), Faith No More (February 2022), Backstreet Boys (March 2022), Rod Stewart (March 2022), Kings of Leon (March 2022).
