The Who have postponed their UK/Ireland tour set to begin in a few days.

No word yet on whether the U.S. dates will happen in April, but my magic eight-ball says outlook not promising...

Melissa Etheridge at Rodeo Austin, Travis County Expo Center, March 24!

...IF the rodeo is not cancelled for Covid-19...

They cancelled SXSW a few days ago and flushed $300 million in economic activity with it.

I am advised that Rodeo Austin, by contrast, is not projected to attract many visitors from outside the vicinity. Apparently, this is the metric they are using when deciding what to cancel. I hope they know what they are doing.


Cancelled... My whole country is going on lockdown.

Clannad at Ipswich this Friday night...booked before I knew they were playing at Cropredy but at least I’ll be able to compare performances although I have seen them once before but a good few years ago now


So I was looking forward to seeing Clannad tonight but the friend I was going with works in an office where somebody phoned in this morning saying that they are feeling unwell (but could be anything). Anyway given my more vulnerable condition with long-term health issues, she does not want to expose me in anyway to the possibility of getting this overblown flu virus as I would be sharing a car with her. So we’re not going and having to lose £63 a ticket as well. Still I suppose it’s better safe than sorry  Embarrassed

So the next thing just been taken away by this sh**tty virus thing...the annual Blues at the Barns festival in Essex has just bitten the dust due to “current advice and unpredictable nature of the Coronavirus situation” This was due to take place on 3 May! Still at least my ticket money is being refunded

Really don't want to drag this away down into another big issue, but please, please, please, IT IS NOT AN OVERBLOWN FLU VIRUS.

Not a gig per se, but my plan to see the legendary Dr. Jane Goodall in San Antonio in late April has been upended; the venue is "rescheduling" all shows through the end of April.

It's starting to look like quite the drought of live gigs between now and the immediate future. Seems to be a combination of cities and counties shutting down large gatherings, and the artists themselves withdrawing to protect themselves, their bands and crews.

Wondering whether the Fairport Rhine River cruise will happen in June.

Off this afternoon to see Alden Patterson and Dashwood in a very small local venue. Could be the last one for a while. It’s only a short walk so no need to get bus or tube. Suspect most of the audience will count as “elderly”!
