The Who tour. Cancelled and not rescheduled.


 Sad

The Monkees moved their spring 2021 tour (originally moved from spring 2020) to fall 2021, and cancelled the Austin show at ACL Live, pending location of a new venue. Fingers crossed they come up with something. Mike and Mickey aren't spring chickens and I don't know how many more chances I'm going to get here.
I didn't know they were still touring! I wish I'd seen them when they all toured over here about 10+ (?) years ago.


It was 10 years ago.  I too am annoyed I didn't see them then...


I saw Peter's band around then and he was superb.

It looks as if the Reading and Leeds festivals are (all things being equal...) due to go ahead at the end of August. Not folk, but they are sizeable gatherings.

Green Man is making very positive noises too.  It's good, of course, but I'm really struggling to understand how these could actually function (particularly the ones with tented 'other' stage areas.)

And....

A very positive newsletter from Gareth about Cropredy has just been received:

We are writing to you with news about Fairport’s Cropredy Convention 2021.

Following PM Boris Johnson laying out a four-step plan for easing restrictions by midsummer, we can at last give you an update on Cropredy.

If Covid-19 is under control it is hoped that large outdoor events can take place this summer so we are cautiously optimistic our festival will be staged, as planned, over the weekend of 12-14 August 2021.

There are still a number of factors to consider of course. Firstly, the four steps are entirely dependent on getting the coronavirus under control in the UK. Secondly, we remain anxious (as do all festivals) that we are still unable take out cancellation insurance that covers Covid-19. However, the festival industry is actively lobbying the government for help in underwriting this. Hopefully we’ll have some good news in the Chancellor’s budget report next week.

The government has said that 21 June is the earliest date that restrictions will be completely lifted. As Cropredy’s dates are later in the festival season, there is every reason to hope that we can all look forward to meeting in the field in August.

Safety is our first consideration (in fact, it was the main reason we postponed back in April 2020), so there may be some mitigation measures in place and we will be liaising with the responsible authorities throughout the summer in the build-up to the festival to make Cropredy as safe as possible for our festival-goers, staff, artists and local residents.

As far as planning the festival goes, we haven't taken our foot off the pedal in our preparations for August and we remain committed to presenting a wonderful weekend of music. The fabulous line-up remains unchanged and 2020 tickets will be valid for 2021.

This has been a unique twelve months by any standards. Our hearts go out to our friends in the extended Fairport family who have lost someone close and we shall remember those who are no longer with us when we meet again in that very special field.

We look to sharing a weekend in the country with you all in August. Meanwhile take care and stay safe.

Very best wishes from Gareth and all of us at Team Cropredy!

Strange that this newsletter has had a patchy distribution. Usually we get two of everything from the Office, but no sign of this missive in our mailbox. We aren't alone in this, I know.

Still, as I'd expect, optimism abounds. Good-oh.
