The New York City concert will help celebrate the city’s reopening from COVID-19
Summer in New York City is well on its way as Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this past Monday that he and Clive Davis (5-time Grammy Award winner) are currently planning a mega-concert in Central Park. As of now, the concert is tentatively set for Saturday, August 21, and will take place on the Great Lawn of Central Park which the New York Times considers to be part of the city’s “Homecoming Week.” New York City’s “Homecoming Week” will be a series of events to help celebrate the city’s reopening from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Blasio publicly commented to the New York Times that the concert would be a “once in a lifetime opportunity” and that that “the whole week is going to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before in New York City.” The concert will be broken up into two sections, vaccinated and unvaccinated. It is being reported that about 70% of the tickets will go towards the people who are vaccinated and that the tickets will be primarily free with various VIP tickets available.
The lineup has not been announced yet, but New York City residents should be eager with anticipation as Blasio described the lineup as “amazing.” We will circle back around once the official lineup is released.
