Radio City Chriatmas Rocketts in New York City Cancelled

Fri Aug 07, 2020 12:53 am

The Radio City Christmas Spectatular that includes the Rocketts in New York City was canelled for the first time since the show began in 1933 due to COVID-19. Amazing that they continued when the United States was part of World War 2 after Pearl Harbor, during the Asian Flu of 1957, Hong Kong Flu of 1969, right after 9/11, SARS in 2003, and the swine flu outbreak of 2009, but not COVID-19.

The rich in the US could still see the Rockettes during WW2, it's not like EVERYONE went to war or the US was totally destroyed like Europe and Japan. As for the epidemics you noted, they were just that, not a pandemic that engulfed the whole world.

It’s spelled Rockettes, please. I used to fly with a retired one, she was F/A and a good one, too. 28 years as Rockette, too.

To he honest, I know nothing about them. I had to Google them. Although the first result was a Finnish skating team until I realised it was spelt Rockettes, not Rocketts.

All I know is they're a famous dance troupe. But you don't have to know anything about anything to understand how a global catastrophe relates to another and how their respective effects effect events with large groups of spectators.

Hey Archdude! They're a bunch of women who's claim to fame is standing in a line and doing a high leg kick in unison, in a nutshell.

Darn Archdude and missing a "E".. So "GF" what makes one a "Good F/A"? Did she serve the drinks in an expedited manner? Did she smile more than the other F/A's? So if i'm reading this correct, she stood in a line on stage and high kicked then transitioned to serving beverages on a plane with a smile, correct, too...?

I'm surprised that people hadn't heard of the Rockettes, but maybe it's an age thing too. On my first visit to the USA/NYC in 2016, the Rockettes Christmas show was certainly high on my list of things to do as an NYC stereotype (didn't make it there, but sure did all the other Rockefeller stuff).

Fair enough to cancel though.

So I'm assuming these are high school/college cheerleaders who instead of going the NFL route and sell their bodies decided to go the professional route and perfect their art at dancing to sell their talent...respectable
Instead of typing in "mods", consider using the report function.
Love how every "travel blogger" says they will never fly AA/Ethihad again and then says it again and again on subsequent flights.

You wanna tell that to my friend from rural MO's neighbor. She was laughing her ass off when my friend was requiring patrons of his small business to stand 6 feet apart and she refused to wear a mask anywhere. Now she doesn't have to worry about standing 6 feet apart because she is 6 feet under the ground. Died from COVID complications.

I though the "smh" must have been a typo for "/s"

I expect that Christmas around the world this year will be total misery, the cancellation of this show this year is just a small example of how it will be. The only gift people will want is an effective vaccine.

Have you ever seen the Rockeetes at Radio City Music Hall?

Yes, I have, but it was maybe almost 50 years ago.

I was planning to see them as a nod to history rather than any real interest in what they are currently doing.

Google has been big since the early 2000s...surely someone showed you how to use it?

The Rockettes is an experience but it has definitely shifted direction in the past couple of years. Some traditional elements always remain close to the same (Wooden Soldiers, Nativity Scene) but now they are starting to tinker with them by bringing in large ass Hi-Def screens and diving into a Chase sponsorship which has the Chase logo visible through 95% of the entire damn show in some way shape or form, shifting the focus away from dancing artistry to about 20% and the other 80% mega rock spectacle.
