As all concerts, shows and events are slowly but surely being cancelled or postponed, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have just been added to the list. The 2020 Olympics hosted by Tokyo will now be postponed due to the coronavirus and will likely not take place until 2021.

This marks a first in Olympic history for the games to be suspended. Three times they have been flat out canceled: In 1916 for World War I, then again in 1940 and 1944 for World War II.
