Concerts are making a comeback. Harry Styles and other artists are touring this summer

As the Covid-19 pandemic subsides, artists are slowly getting back on stage to perform in front of live audiences again.

The Foo Fighters are kicking things off with a big show Sunday to celebrate the reopening of New York’s Madison Square Garden.

It will mark the first time in over 400 days since the iconic venue has had a concert due to pandemic. In order to attend the concert, attendees must show proof of having been fully vaccinated — sparking protests by some. Outside a Foo Fighter’s concert in Agoura Hills, California, earlier this week, several dozen anti-vaccine demonstrators gathered.

While Covid protocols for large gatherings will still vary by venue, a growing number of artists have announced summer performance dates, including Garth Brooks, Dave Matthews, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Celine Dion and Maroon Five.

One Republic’s Ryan Tedder told CNN he can’t wait to perform at MLB’s All Star Weekend in July.

“We just started booking gigs in August and September,” Tedder told CNN in a recent interview. “It’s coming back but it’s been a minute. We’ve been anxious to get back.”

“I think live music will explode,” Tedder added. “I think this has created a scenario in which everyone that’s alive has this new lease on their time in moving forward, at least for the next year or two.”

New York City has plans for an ultimate outdoor concert in Central Park in August. Clive Davis is signed on to produce.
