No indoor shows until after November when a target date will be set, so pretty certain the Rats 2020 tour won't take place

The culture secretary, Oliver Dowden, says it is likely to be November at the earliest before theatres are given a target date for reopening without social distancing.

The odd thing is that The Rats haven't been cancelled nor postponed (yet).  Kim Wilde, Sting and Dionne Warwick who were all due to play at the same time have postponed.

If it does get postponed again, I will hang onto ticket.  Looking back I should have gone to Minehead...

Incredibly Van Morrison on 23rd/24th September is still listed.  He will be 75 when he plays those gigs.  Seven years older than Geldof!

Probably postpone until march - at the earliest. Plenty of time to re-release album with extra tracks - so some of us buy again.

I cannot see the tour happening before March next year. I will hold on to my tickets but I would like to know soon as I have flights to book

Van Morrison and The Rats still not cancelled.
Sparks have rescheduled a date in October to next May.

London Palladium opening with 36% capacity. Possible Rats could play in October. Looking at ticket sales, could split audience over 2 nights.

I asked Pete Briquette if I should book my flights to London for the concert in London, he replied no.

What does he know?  smile  I would not book a flight until a week before at the earliest.

Amazingly still not cancelled.

Yes and still not postponed/cancelled. If there is one venue that may go ahead it is the London Palladium. https://lwtheatres.co.uk/latest-information-coronavirus/

Also football clubs are planning to let people in from 1st October.

Brighton Dome is also still selling tickets and possibly other venues.

 There is about as much chance of any meaningful gigs this year as me flying through the air.

Now BoJo has decided no more than 6 people can gather together, no chance of anyone seeing The Rats unless they sack Darren and Alan so a couple of us can attend!

Dont understand how pubs and restaurants can stay open and have who knows how many inside, but I cant invite my sister and family around for drinks in the garden. Maybe we can baptise the kids.  Again!

 

  • Any gathering of more than six people in England will be illegal from Monday Sep 14th, unless it meets one of a limited list of exemptions
  • This applies to gatherings both indoors and outdoors
  • The new rule does not apply to households or bubbles of more than six, or gatherings for work or education
  • Weddings, funerals, and organised team sports carried out in a Covid-secure way are also exempt
  • People will at first be fined £100, but this will double on each further repeat offence up to £3,200
  • No longer voluntary, pubs, restaurants and other hospitality businesses must now legally collect customers' details to aid with contact tracing. 
  • Covid-secure 'marshalls' will be hired to monitor rules are being followed
  • Provisional plan to reopen stadiums and conference halls on Oct 1 will now be reviewed

 Wait till the sanctimonious, jobs-worth 'marshals' abuse their roles, which happens every time you give someone a high viz jacket and a bit of authority.....

Rats appear to be the next show available ignoring a couple of evenings with Graham Norton and Elizabeth Day which are book selling events.

Van Morrison gig not cancelled, just not on sale.
