The delay applys to almost every Live Nation tour scheduled both in the United States and internationally. Billboard reports that the ban will kick in this weekend, and a "few shows will play out Thursday and Friday." A company executive reportedly told employees on a call that Live Nation would revisit the postponement in April.

Yesterday the novel coronavirus was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), an announcement which dovetailed with Live Nation losing nearly 16% in stock value.
