LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Greek Theatre announced Tuesday that it was canceling its 2020 season in compliance with state, county and city guidelines in light of the ongoing 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,” AP Diaz, Los Angeles Recreation and Parks executive officer, said in a statement.READ MORE: Man Wanted For Robbery Leads Police On Motorcycle Chase In Whittier Area
