UK SHOWS POSTPONEMENT
Hi You Lot
As we said in an earlier Facebook post, postponements will be made for good of everyone.
As things stand, even with the prime minister announcing the end of UK lockdown, the band and crew are based all over Europe, all with their own vaccination roll out plans and travel/quarantine restrictions.
We can’t afford to risk having to change the September UK shows at the last minute, so we have decided to play it EXTRA safe and postpone the shows exactly ONE year later.
There are also many of you traveling in from all corners of the world. We just can’t risk it in this volatile climate.
Also remember, these words come from the mouth of Boris Johnson! And we are already hearing that even if restrictions are lifted there are talks of social distancing and mask wearing etc with a greatly reduced seated audience!! We are not going for that, a gigs a gig, with a mosh pit, beers, singing and all the rest of it.
Anyways, South Shields is sold out already, Edinburgh and London almost too, how could we play to a reduced audience!?
More news on the Manchester show below!!
BUT, the main thing, in a nutshell, is, we live all over Europe with all kindsa restrictions and we are in the midst of a pandemic! That's it!
Now the good news:
All tickets valid for the rescheduled dates-South Shields has sold out and limited tickets remain for London and Edinburgh. Unfortunately Angelic Upstarts are unavailable for the rescheduled Forum date but we are pleased to announce UK Subs will now be our very special guests for the evening. Our sold out Manchester Club Academy show has now upgraded to Academy 2 so additional tickets available now.
We know this is all a nightmare, and highly disappointing, This has not been an easy decision to make, believe me! WE WANNA GET GIGGING.
As for the other shows planned for 2021, please just keep checking the tour dates, you all know the present situation. We will keep you posted as soon as we have news.
