  • How confident are people in Ohana 21 proceeding as scheduled? 
  • 100% confident and it will be their 1st show back!!!  Actually, who knows?  No one does.  I have tickets and an entire trip planned around Ohana so I am just trying to put some positive vibes out there.

    i'm close to 70% sure it happens. i also think it will be the next pj show.
    This show, another show, a show here and a show there.

    I also think this could be the next PJ show. I think it’s highly unlikely the Europe tour will go ahead, but Ohana end of September - fingers crossed!
  • Living in So Cal, I would not be gambling on Ohana happening. The factors weigh heavily against it. First, the general population in California may not be vaccinated until mid to late summer now unfortunately. Second, the tickets have already been sold with no allowance for distancing, which medical experts say will absolutely still be necessary into 2022. Third, the state and local authorities are clearly going to be overly cautious.

    I agree with you....if someone is going to make travel plans, it may be best to make refundable plans.

    The venue is on state property, so they will be extra cautious in deciding whether or not to allow the event.

    Yes. Going to be interesting to see how this plays out if they can have a tour in the fall. I would imagine the East Coast leg would be centered around SHN and the West Coast would be around Ohana but if they can not do a EC tour before mid September then that would not work out at all with only 1 week between festivals. Easy decision would be then to do both festivals if able to and then the tours after I guess. Hopefully we here some news in the coming months from government and health officials on the path forward.

    Yes, and the same factors apply to SHN as the ones I mentioned for Ohana. Hard to see how those shows are played.

    Makes sense =)  Fingers crossed!

  • Someone who is usually in the know posted on another thread that the postponed 2020 NA spring shows were being moved to 2022.  That is disheartening if true, but given that indoor environments with singing, alcohol and crowds are the least safe of all things, it seems believable that it won’t happen in 21.  I hold out a little more hope for these outdoor shows in late 2021, as that at least removes the extra risk factor of being indoors.  Of course it will still need vaccines to have progressed at a much better rate than they have started, and the great unknown is at what point will the cases and hospitalizations come down to a level where the risk is low enough.  Maybe something like vaccine passport and/or negative test required for admission.  Who knows.

    I work in the entertainment industry and have had conversations with people who work in music. Some people think the best case scenario is that it it may be possible to do distanced shows as 2021 continues. In fact, Jason Isbell already did a handful of outdoor distanced shows with very strict rules in October. Of course, a big part of the issue for Pearl Jam is that they’ve already sold the tickets for full venues including GA. So for those arena shows and festivals, there’s really no option. Those shows will only be able to happen when venues are cleared for things to be fully back to normal. That may be a while. And it’s even going to get more complicated than that because what will they do if California, NY, and NJ for example don’t allow things to get back to full normalcy until after Texas? And how far in advance will we know when full venues will be allowed?  It’s a logistical nightmare.

    All we can do is expect the worst and hope for the best.  Ohana is almost as far into the future as that horrible day last March is in the past.  Things can maybe turn around by then.  Hey, it’s a new year.  New hope.

    Springsteen was just on E Street Radio to celebrate the New Year and he said based on what he’s been told, he does not believe shows will be possible in 2021 and he is gearing up for 2022 but even that can’t be considered certain.

    He has been saying that for himself and his band since September about not touring until 2022. This is not news from him.

    If you heard what he said, it was in the context of when shows would resume within the industry. Not just for his band.
