The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles is canceling its entire 2020 season — for the first time in 90 years.

The iconic theater will not host any events this year per California state guidelines. “We had hoped to celebrate our 90th anniversary season of providing live entertainment for the citizens of Los Angeles. We feel it is the right, responsible, and safe thing for fans, artists, staff, and Griffith Park community to pause on live, large crowd events until 2021,” says Los Angeles Parks Executive AP Diaz.

The Greek Theatre says it will use this time to refresh, reset, and work with partners to reschedule events.

The move comes just two weeks after the Hollywood Bowl decided to cancel its 2020 season as well. The move was widely expected, and multiple events slated for the Bowl had already come and gone. A Kesha concert – scheduled for May 5th – and a Norah Jones show — slated for May 22nd — were both canceled.

The Greek Theatre’s schedule is divided into three categories. Some dates have been rescheduled to 2021, others have not been rescheduled yet, and others are being taken off the books entirely. Postponed events include shows by the Goo Goo Dolls and Alicia Keys as well as the Netflix Is A Joke Fest.

Here’s a rundown of flat-out canceled Greek Theatre events.

  • Kesha
  • Local Natives & Foals
  • Norah Jones
  • Above & Beyond
  • Melanie Martinez
  • Gladys Knight
  • Funk N The Greek
  • Smokey Robinson
  • AJR
  • NF

The Greek Theatre says attendees should hang on to their tickets for postponed and rescheduled events. The original ticket will be valid for any new event dates. Anyone who has ticket inquiries should contact their point of purchase. You can see a full listing and status of this year’s shows by visiting The Greek Theatre website.

You can bet more cancellations will continue to roll in as the coronavirus death toll climbs, despite re-openings across multiple states.

    Ha! Moron Californians get what they deserve.

      Bite the hand that feeds you, huh? Any downturn to the CA economy affects other states that CA fed taxes go to support. CA also produces the most of everything that goes to feed the country. You’re an idiot, basically.

      • Angelito

        Ha! California uses far more in fed money than it contributes. And, Iowa, Texas, and Nebraska feeds nearly everyone in the US.

        Hand that feeds me? Fuck no. California is a hopeless pit filled with illegal aliens, depraved pukes, and you. But, I repeat myself.

        • Angeloser

          Wrong. You got incorrect information, or made this up. Repeat all you want, but it’s still not true. Try again, nitwit.

          • Angelito

            It is true, liar. California produces about 11% of the food in the US. Iowa and Nebraska are not far behind at 8% each. So—fucking California—leave the US and make us a stronger nation. We will send you poop bags to pick up the turds on the streets.

    Angelito, you just proved my point that CA has the highest food production in the US – nice job. CA actually produces 14% of the food in the US; 2/3 of the fruits and vegetables. Aside from food, CA is a leader in technology and education that other states enjoy the results of innovation and development. You’ll come back with your false information and lies, but you just got owned, yet again, you little bitch.

    As for taxes, CA pays over $234B annually, or about 15% of the entire US states combined. CA ranks 7th on the list when you look at taxes per capital annually and as a percentage of income. So, CA does contribute more and does support other states that are fairly worthless (The South).

    If CA could leave the US to start it’s own country, it would thrive not having to support the laggards of the this country. NY is another state that gives more than it gets, so it is in the best interest of the Fed, other states, and you, to shut the fuck up and support those who actually lead this country forward.

    • Angelito

      Liar. Both NY and California get back $1.00 for about 77 cents contributed to the Feds. You are damn leeches. And, you think your hopeless-bankrupt ass can survive without Fed money? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      14% is a lie, but of course that is what liberals do—lie. Texas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Florida slightly increase their food production and California is irrelevant. Tech is already leaving your fucking shithole of a state.

      Please—I beg you—convince enough of your insane, antifa, socialist, leftist California friends to secede. Please hurry.

        You can’t help spread false info. That’s just you. I accept that. You lose…again.

        • Al Jolson

          I know he spreads false information, because I do also. We’re both idiots and hired guns to cause chaos and civil unrest online.

          • Angeloser

            Well, there you go. Admitting to being paid to stoke the fires of fake news and get people riled up. You are a loser.

          • Al Jolson

            You meant truthful information. It is your Antifa friends who are burning down cities and stealing liquor and sneakers.
