A Complete Rundown of the Las Vegas Residencies Canceled Due to Coronavirus

Amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, unfortunately, many Las Vegas Residencies have been canceled or postponed. In many states (and potentially soon to be nationwide), large gatherings of over 250 people in one place are being discouraged and banned for an indefinite amount of time. As you can imagine, this has greatly affected the music industry as a whole. Every artist who’s on a tour has had to postpone/reschedule shows until later in the year. This has also affected artists who have Las Vegas Residencies.

The Jonas Brothers were set to perform a 19-day Vegas Residency at the Park MGM from April 1-18. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus outbreak, the band posted a statement to their social media pages, explaining the cancellation of their residency. Because it was such a limited residency, the shows are not being postponed to a later date; they are canceled permanently.

Another artist whose Vegas Residency was affected is Kelly Clarkson. Her residency, titled “Invincible,” was set to begin on April 1, but in light of the coronavirus outbreak, the opening shows have been pushed back to July. The singer-songwriter and talk show host posted a statement across her social media channels, announcing the postponed shows. She has also temporarily halted production on her talk show The Kelly Clarkson Show.
