Since the Coronavirus pandemic hit the United States, just about every concert through at least summer time has been either postponed or canceled. With that being said, promoters and concert venues are scrambling to try and come up with a way to keep social distancing at concerts, should they be told they could resume shows.

There were supposed to be a lot of great Rock Tours this summer. The Eagles were going to continue their Hotel California tour, The Doobie Brothers we're celebrating their 50th anniversary tour with Michael McDonald back in the band, and maybe the biggest tour  of all this summer was the stadium tour featuring Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett.

There were other cool tours too, Including Alice Cooper down in Wilkes-Barre with Tesla and Lita Ford. That show has been postponed and rescheduled for  January 24th at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre. However, Tesla and Lita Ford have prior commitments during that time, so they will not be able to be on that bill. They were being replaced by the band Extreme.

Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kiss, Ozzy Osbourne, and Elton John were all in the mist of their farewell tours when the band on mass gatherings started. Ozzy cancelled his shows prior to the outbreak due to his medical issues.

Other tours that were supposed to take place this summer that some people were excited about included Bon Jovi with Bryan Adams, The Big Rock Summer tour with Ratt, Cinderella's Tom Keifer, Skid Row and Slaughter.

James Taylor was touring with Jackson Browne. That show, as well as Steely Dan and Steve Winwood, Bob Dylan, Journey with the Pretenders, Santana with Earth Wind & Fire, and The Black Crowes, were all supposed to play at Bethel Woods for the Performing Arts.

I guess we will have to wait and see when and if these tours will take place going forward. Hopefully, things will be back to  normal and we will be able to visit outdoor venues for great live music in 2021, if not before then.

So, What show, or shows, were you looking forward to the most?
