The cancellations for New York City performing arts continues. Both Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center have both cancelled their fall performances and will likely be closed until the end of 2020, according to the New York Times.

Carnegie Hall's executive artistic director Clive Gillinson said:

This was a very difficult decision for us to make. However, the safety of Carnegie Hall’s artists, audiences and staff is paramount.

Lincoln Center said that they foresee a $1.3 million loss in ticket revenue due to the cancellations, says Lincoln Center rep Isabel Sinistore. She added that since the beginning of the pandemic Lincoln Center has seen about $13 million in lost revenue.

It's likely that New York City won't see many, if any, large live performances in 2021.
