Has COVID-19 changed the music industry?

Definitely, and in several ways too.
First off, as conley39 said, a lot of big musicians or bands have had to cancel the remainder of their tours and honored those pre-bought tickets with tickets for a future show. I know many planned summer tours and will now be moving them back to summer 2021.
Second, in terms of musicians trying to make music, some have had to hold off on releasing their music and some have had to change things up. Because you couldn't be in a studio around March and April when the virus was horrific, you couldn't really be in a studio with others. A lot of them are probably back in studios but are social distancing.
Third, a lot of musicians that are starting up on albums are probably doing something else and are converting to home studios and relying on a more electronic pop sound.

Yes, no tours or mass concerts for the time being. A lot more on line performances.

There's new music dropping, but there are no tours, which is where musicians actually make their money from, unless they can actually play their new songs live they won't get any financial benefit from it.
The stress being put on the music business is unconscionable, letting a few people die would be better.

For the time being, it has made a lot of musicians and their supporting cast unemployed. Roadies for example are jobless. Things won't go back to normal until Covid-19 is stopped.
