I slightly upgraded my Rolling Stones tickets. Ticketmaster finally offered to refund all purchases from the original sale, once the rescheduled date was announced. I returned my original tickets for a full refund and immediately bought two aisle seats in the same section for a bit less than I paid two years ago.  Smiley


Charlie's not good tonight.  Very disappointing.  Somewhat over dramatically I'm kind of in the "No Charlie, no Stones" camp myself... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/czxde05dzygo


First of all - great joke!

Secondly - couldn't agree more.

Edit: P.S. I stole your joke and posted it on Twitter. I actually credited you. Mainly because some people from here are also on there and one of them might have grassed me up.   Grin

A trickle of cancellations starting to come in.

Bachman-Cummings have postponed their Fall tour of the U.S. due to issues for travelers from Canada to the U.S.

Fairport's Fall cruise down the Danube is cancelled due to issues for travelers from the U.K. to Romania and Hungary.

I've got Clapton, the Stones, and others on the books from August through December. What's going to happen? The southern states (including big concert destinations like Florida and Texas) are aggressively blocking mask and vaccine mandates, meaning theoretically that the venues will be open with no restrictions. But they can't force cautious people to buy a ticket, let alone musicians to perform.

Next up for me - assuming it doesn't get cancelled - is Lindisfarne, at Bradford Cathedral, in September. Should be a good one.  Smiley

They're supposed to be very good.  Managed by Warren (son of Peter) Grant apparently...

Ah the pavillion Llandod I remember bunking off down there from school... those were the days... My sister and I went to Llandod recently for a trip down memory lane and was so very sad at what the place has become..... Sad

Really want to be there but it's an hour each way and I think i'm going to struggle.  Do want to be there to see Diana Collier when she's playing next week, but we'll see....

I've got a bumper October lined up - 10th Thea Gilmore (Acapela Studios, Pentyrch), 16th Lindisfarne (Grand Pavilion, Porthcawl) 21st Go Now, Moody Blues tribute act (Acapela) 23rd Steeleye Span (Pontardawe Arts Centre). The Lindisfarne gig was originally due to take place in March 2020, it 's been rescheduled twice, so fingers crossed this time. Thea Gilmore was also rescheduled from last year. Go Now is a new one for me. I'm not normally a fan of tribute acts, but I've seen some of their stuff online and I'm impressed. Also, it's more or less certain that the Moodies won't be touring again, so this is my only chance of catching anything of theirs live. The Steeleye Span one was an impulse purchase yesterday. It's the tail end of their 50th anniversary tour, which, of course, was brought to an abrupt halt by covid. I actually saw them in 2019 at the beginning of this tour!
Hopefully they'll all go ahead and go some way to taking the edge of the first anniversary of Barbara's death on the 28th of that month.

Just in case anyone else is going specifically to see Diana in Hereford tonight, please note that she's not now playing.  I assume the gig (Diamond Family Archive) will go ahead without her...
