LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles has officially postponed all of its shows for 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Although 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 our Griffith Park community to put a pause on live, large crowd events until 2021,” said City of Los Angeles, Recreation and Parks Executive Officer, AP Diaz.
According to Diaz, the Greek will take the time during the shutdown to ‘refresh and reset’ as they reschedule previously planned events.
The 5,900-capacity Greek joins other iconic Hollywood venues who have surrendered their 2020 seasons to the inclemencies of the coronavirus pandemic, including The Hollywood Bowl and The Ford.
