From stage and venue workers to musicians and performers and, most importantly, the millions of people who are working behind the scenes to bring shows to life, there is a massive ecosystem that has been brought to a halt since the pandemic put live events on pause around the world. The vast majority of U.S. workers in the live events industry still have not received meaningful financial support from the federal government. These people were some of the first to stop working when the pandemic hit and will certainly be the last to return to work when live events can safely return. We need to save the people who power live events so that they can bring music, theater, comedy and all kinds of culture back when the show can go on once again.
