Please see the below statement from Jim Lucchese, CEO of Sofar Sounds regarding upcoming Sofar shows:
We have been closely monitoring developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety of our artists, audiences, hosts and employees is our highest priority and first responsibility.
For that reason, we’ve made the decision to cancel upcoming shows for the foreseeable future. We expect cancellations to run through mid-May, but will be monitoring the situation closely and will be in touch as it evolves.
I want to apologize for the impact this has on everyone in our community. All of us at Sofar are here because we want to help local, independent artists connect with new audiences. We know how important live performance is to those artists and to supporters like you. That’s what makes this difficult. Though we’re putting shows on hold, we are working on other ways to support local musicians during this time.
We will be reaching out separately to artists, guests, and hosts from affected shows with more details and next steps by Wednesday of next week.
We’ve reached out to all guests, artists and hosts from affected shows with additional information. If you haven't heard from us regarding a show you were scheduled to attend, please get in touch with us here.
