We acknowledge that this event is happening on the same day as #LightUpLive. This event ends just as the lighting of venues begins. We are showing our support by encouraging everyone to wear something red and will acknowledge the movement in the program. We all want to get back to live...it's who we are...but virtual and hybrid will be part of the journey we have to take on the way
