BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS - MARCH 12: A view outside of TD Garden, the venue that hosts the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics on March 12, 2020 in Boston, Massachusetts. It has been announced that NBA and NHL seasons have been suspended due to COVID-19 with hopes of returning later in the spring.

Perfect timing: this week’s 12 Inch Poll is talking about the live music experiences you’re missing most, and now we have this news.


Sure, it will be awhile still before we’ll see live music at either venue. But Mass. Governor Charlie Baker announced today that on March 22, large venues with capacities of 5,000 or more will reopen. Of course, there will be restrictions in place with rules for reduced capacity. But do the math: 5,000+ venues means TD Garden, Fenway Park, and Gillette Stadium will once again be allowed to accommodate fans.


It’s been so long, it’s almost strange to imagine the Bruins and Celtics playing at home in front of fans next month and the Red Sox doing the same in April. We’ll be following this story with updates on how each venue plans to manage reopening. In the meantime, the Boston Globe has more information here and the Governor’s Office has more details on the start of Phase IV here.
