Is this true? I am heartbroken and despondent. Please reconsider.

Bookmark and Share patsfan : I received an email today from the Chicago Symphony Center regarding the 2020/2021 Jazz Series. Previously they had canceled all the shows through March and now announced all the shows through June (all ten concerts, some were double - bills). I am disappointed, but not surprised. There were some great shows scheduled so in some ways 2021 is looking better, but unfortunately not with live Jazz. Hopefully the Chicago area Jazz clubs may reopen soon, they have a better chance because they don’t have to fill the club to survive. I am willing to pay more for the cover charge so they can book national acts.

Bookmark and Share patsfan : I never want to be the bearer of bad news and always hold out hope but 2020 has left a path of destruction for live music. I just checked the Schedule here and the first US concert isn’t until September 27th 2021. My guess is that probably could happen. Based on Jazz Series at my Chicago venues, Kennedy Center and other concert halls were I have seen Pat, the Series start in October. The good news could be that Pat will do some Summer Jazz Festivals in the US. The Detroit Jazz Festival has booked him several times. From the articles I have read he will probably do the Side-Eye trio with James Francies and Joe Dyson.

Bookmark and Share Marc .... well, you were so correct back in Nov, but I was still holding out hope since the schedule listings on this site were still intact ... until quite recently. No US concerts , at least until October In Sacramento. I will be at the latter and cancel Stuart Florida. I’m flexible :)

Bookmark and Share patsfan: Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I went to Pat’s Schedule link. When I clicked on Tickets for Charlotte it said This show has been cancelled, Stuart FL show doesn’t appear on the venue’s schedule and Miami venue Update page says show cancelled and to be rescheduled. I visited the Kurland Agency website (Pat’s agent) again and no US shows on schedule for 2021. I don’t expect the vaccines to be available to most of the population until mid- year. I anxiously await Pat returning to the US tour circuit, but it probably will be late in 2021 or early 2022. Both of my venues with Jazz Series start the 2021-2022 season in November. That seems to be the pattern at most big venues like the ones Pat plays at.

Bookmark and Share Well, There’s still hope for Charlotte, and Stuart (Fl) and Miami. ... maybe the vaccine will change things. I noticed the concerts in Austin TX were cancelled. Then Pat is off in the world for at least 6 mo. I’m really hoping to see Pat in Stuart !

Bookmark and Share Last week I received an email from the University of Chicago Logan Center. The entire 2020-2021 Jazz Series has been cancelled. It was five concert series ending in May 2021. I expect the Chicago Symphony Center to announce soon that they will be cancelling the remainder of their 2020-2021 Jazz Series. There were ten shows scheduled with several with two bands. I am very disappointed that I am missing out on a lot of great music. I also really feel bad for all the musicians who want to and have to perform to survive. 2020 can’t end soon enough, but 2021 looks like it will be a rough start. Trying to stay positive is getting challenging.

Bookmark and Share I just received an email from the Chicago Symphony Center regarding my 2020-2021 Jazz Series. All their concerts both Jazz and Classical have been cancelled from January thru March 30 2021. I was expecting this but was hoping the end was in sight. Live Jazz music was the best way to escape all the BS going on in the US. I was able to focus on the music for several hours and let the music take me to a much better place. Vote November 3rd, your life does depend on it!

Bookmark and Share Marc ... I agree, the Covid forecast is still a problem. . And accordingly the whole concert scene. Personally I am not paranoid of Covid, but many people are and probably for good reason. Am not optimistic that vaccines will be be magic solution. I think in the end, most people will at one or more points be exposed to the virus, just like the flu. I’m really hoping Pat’s concert In Stuart and elsewhere will happen in 2021, but ........

Bookmark and Share I have been attending the Chicago Symphony Jazz Series since 2008. Their Jazz Series runs from September to June, so the shows scheduled for 2021 were booked long before Covid-19 shut everything down. All my shows this year starting in March were cancelled for the year. The 2021 shows are still on the Calendar, but their status is yet to be determined. If they somehow are able to open with 100percent capacity they don’t know how many people are not comfortable with mass gatherings. I recently completed a questionnaire for another venue that I attend their Jazz Series. They wanted to know what I expected them to do for me to attend the 2021 shows. For now I can only hope that somewhere in 2021 I will get to see Pat live, hopefully with Side-Eye (version 2.0).

Bookmark and Share Until a vaccine is found and approved for Covid-19, I think that any concerts scheduled for 2021 will probably not happen. Also with capacities being limited a concert halls and even clubs they would have a hard time breaking even. My favorite jazz club in Chicago, the Jazz Showcase has reopened with only local acts and very limited capacity. There are a lot of additional expenses that the venues have to pay like hotel rooms and transportation.

Bookmark and Share James ... looks like it as it’s definitely on the list of cancelled events for the knight Theater. ::((. Well, I have my tickets for Pat’s next concert in Stuart, Florida. It’s still on their schedule , but I was impressed by the number of concerts that have been cancelled through the spring of 2021. And currently the theater is closed until further notice. And Florida is a relatively Covid liberal state. So I figure I have a 50:50 chance of seeing Pat. When all the snow birds descend on Florida, the Covid rate may increase a lot.
