From February to May 2020, the live entertainment events in Japan lost about 362 billion Japanese yen of ticket sales due to cancelations and postponements following the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak. The live entertainment industry was estimated to lose a further 320 billion yen of sales from tickets by January 2021. In total, approximately 690 billion yen were expected to be lost in the industry by the beginning of 2021, according to the estimate announced in May.
Due to a growing number of COVID-19 infections in the country, the Japanese government requested to cancel or postpone planned cultural and sports events across Japan in March 2020. The restrictions were removed in stages and audiences of up to five thousand people were allowed to attend events as of September.
