Plus, the latest on Meghan Thee Stallion, Katy Perry & more.
Welcome to the This Week in Billboard News podcast, where Jordyn Rolling, Billboard News host and producer, and Gary Trust, Billboard senior director of charts, dive into the week's biggest music news stories.
This week, Jordyn and Gary cover how, as the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads globally, previously scheduled live music events continue to be postponed or cancelled. Artists including BTS, Mariah Carey and Maluma have either rescheduled concerts or cancelled them, and Ultra Music Festival, which was set for March 20-22 in Miami, was cancelled for the first time in the festival's 21 years. Conversely, SXSW is currently scheduled to take place as planned March 13-22 in Austin, Texas.
