Metro Phoenix’s concert calendar has gone topsy-turvy over the past four months, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March, hundreds of local shows have been canceled, postponed, or rescheduled as music venues across the Valley have gone dark.

And there’s no end in sight. The summer concert season has essentially been wiped out at this point and shows happening in the fall and winter are being affected in greater numbers.

Many notable artists and bands have decided to postpone touring until 2021. Just this past week alone, acts like Chicano Batman, Judas Priest, Deftones, and Primus have all moved their upcoming performances in metro Phoenix to next year.

Meanwhile, several upcoming Valley concerts have been canceled, including dates by Pink Martini, Aterciopelados, The Black Crowes, and the Hillsong Worship Awake Tour. Folk-rock band The Lumineers have also postponed their August 26 gig at Gila River Arena in Glendale.

All of these shows have been added to our running list of all the concerts and music events, big and small, that have been affected by the pandemic. It's being regularly updated to reflect the latest announcements.

In the case of cancellations, check with individual venues or your point of purchase for info about refunds. With rescheduled and postponed shows, hold on to your tickets (which will be honored for the new dates).
