Big Big Train have sadly announced the cancellation of their European tour
Following the announcement today of the cancellation of the Ramblin Man festival, Big Big Train are very sorry to announce the cancellation of the band’s shows in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy in July due to the coronavirus.

David Longdon comments: “We have of course continued to monitor events regarding coronavirus closely in recent weeks. With the restrictions that have been entirely understandably imposed by European governments, in conjunction with the promoters of our six shows in July we have bowed to the inevitable and been forced to cancel these concerts.”

“We were hugely looking forward to all the shows, including making our debut at the legendary Friars in Aylesbury, returning to Germany and the Netherlands and playing for the first time ever in Italy,” Greg Spawton adds. “Sadly however, it is not to be in 2020. We are instead now focusing our efforts on writing and recording a new Big Big Train studio album which we plan to release next summer. We intend to return to playing live following the completion of our next album. We expect to visit all the countries that were on the schedule for 2020 as well as adding further countries to the tour and have some exciting further news about our future live plans which we will announce shortly.”

Ticket holders should contact their point of sale for concert ticket refunds. The shows affected are:

Thursday 16 July – Friars, Aylesbury, UK
Saturday 18 July – Ramblin’ Man Festival, Kent, UK
Monday 20 July – Stadstheater, Zoetermeer, The Netherlands
Tuesday 21 July – Lichtburg, Essen, Germany
Thursday 23 July – Konzerthaus, Karlsruhe, Germany
Friday 24 July – Phenomenon, Fontaneto D’Agogna, Italy


Not surprised, but I had been really looking forward to the Aylesbury show.  Had been waiting for this announcement for some weeks.

Monkees move from July 27, 2020 to April 2, 2021.

I suspect all my remaining 2020 shows and games will be similarly rescheduled, eventually.

The rescheduled John Grant show at RNCM (which moved from this Sunday just gone to Sept) has just been moved again to May 2021.  I suspect that's probably more realistic.

Bust listening to them today - having discovered that their albums are available at a reasonable price through their Bandcamp page, so have bought some others that I didn't already have.

UPDATE TO EUROPEAN TOUR CANCELLATION:

Following discussions with the promoter in the last 24 hours, we confirm that we are intending to play Aylesbury Friars in 2021. Ticketholders should please treat our 16 July 2020 show as postponed rather than cancelled and retain their current tickets.

That's actually good, as hopefully that will mean Steven Wilson at the O2 will also be postponed. If it goes ahead in September Mike simply won’t go  Sad
