Many events in Regina are being affected by COVID 19. Pikrepo

What’s being postponed?

Regina has been affected by the COVID-19 virus which has led to a laundry list of closings across the Queen City. One of the many things that has been affected is the Regina music scene. Bands, both local and visiting, are either finding new ways to perform or take the necessary time to build something greater (EPs, albums, or touring) in the long run. Here’s a list of some of the bigger names that won’t be able to make it out, you can find that just below:

Matthew Good – Casino Regina, March 31st, 2020: Cancelled

Official Statement from Matthew Good’s Facebook page: There’s nothing more important than human life. Given the latest developments in the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s been decided that it is best for all to postpone my Moving Walls tour. New dates will be announced as soon as possible. I’m being told that you should hold onto your tickets, as they will be honoured at the rescheduled shows. Your ticket seller will be in contact with further details.

Sincerely, Matt.

The Creative City Centre has postponed all upcoming events and Globe Theatre has cancelled what is left of their season. We will be updating this article online as cancellations develop. Many artists are urging those who would otherwise receive a refund to donate that money back to the arts organizations, many of whom are non-profits.

Hopefully this list helps those who were wondering if any of the shows mentioned above would be continuing. All the best and stay safe out there.
