Clive Davis, a renowned figure within the music industry, says they are putting together an “all-star” roster of artists and musicians.
Additionally, if you’re not vaccinated don’t worry! The Times has said there will be sections for the unvaccinated. However, 70% of tickets will be going to vaccinated individuals.
The City is Coming Back to Life
With the summer heat rolling in as well as the restaurants and parks booming with activity, the end of the pandemic is within reach.
Just yesterday (Monday, June 7th), Mayor de Blasio said that New York has the lowest COVID-19 rates since the pandemic began.
Moreover, nearly 4.5 million New Yorkers have received at least one dose of the vaccine. Government officials will continue to offer prizes and incentives for those still hesitant on getting the shot.
Lastly, the rest of the COVID-19 restriction will be lifted when until 70% of residents receive one dose of the vaccine. As of yesterday, New York is only 1.4% away from this goal!
