The Coronavirus crisis has caused the touring industry to grind to a halt and put industry workers in limbo. Live Nation is doing something about it.
Much like the fund that was set up last month to aid staff at Boston’s independent venues–but on a much, much grander scale–the live music giant has created a fund. Crew Nation will benefit tour crew members who are struggling due to the pandemic, to the tune of $10 million-plus.
Live Nation will pony up the first $5 million, then match the next $5 million donated by artists, fans, and the like. You can get all the details, buy merch, and make donations here.
