Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

As more festivals pospone, bands will pull out of others as its not worth touring if its only 3 or 4 dates across different countries, which will make other festivals unviable, the house of cards is starting to fall down. Mercyful Fate had 7 festival dates lined up in europe, 1 has now gone I think ...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

Bloodstock is at toward the end of the festival period and has mainly European bands, so long as Wacken and a few others take place, most bands will think its worth it to play. I have just looked at Delvin Townsends site BLOODSTOCK has been removed from his upcoming tour dates, it was there last wee...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

So Bloodstock could go ahead, but download is gone.

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

It takes time to book bands, hire the stage and light rig, hire all the riggers you need, negotiate contracts with stalls, re negotiate venue hire (they cannot pay the same for a much smaller crowd, although the venue will expect them to) It all takes time, and it cannot be done in a couple of month...

Re: So...Marilyn Manson's evil image isn't just an act. (Allegedly)

5 is a lot, but I think 1 has recanted and deleted their tweet? I have no doubt at all he's a domineering arsehole in relationships, its just I have met alot of people who like that and I get the feeling they were perfectly happy with it when they were with him, its just when they left they realized...

Re: So...Marilyn Manson's evil image isn't just an act. (Allegedly)

It may be true, it may not be or it may be a distorted view being as this was suppose to have happened over 10 years ago... The thing that concerns me is the fact that he's being dropped by his record label and all his tv shows, if he was found guilty of anything then I would fully support this but ...

Re: Bands you saw before they made it big

Have not seen many compared to most of you, I lived in Northampton in my Youth so went to there Roadmender venue a lot. Oasis in a room that held 350 people the week after Live forever was released, it was hell, way more people there than they said, people were standing on the bar and I was crushed ...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

I'm unsure, its not so much about the audience as the bands, all non uk bands now need a visa, which could be a problem for the smaller bands (although I would have expected them to have plans in place for it) But the main problem is the bands don't just do bloodstock, they do a festival run through...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

Total Agreement from me on this, unfortunately my Aunt is a Conspiracy nutter, I need the vaccine as I have a incurable cancer, shes trying to convince me not to have it as it has a micro-chip in it to track you and it will change your DNA to make you more docile and compliant so Big Brother can tel...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

Although I totaly agree with most of your points, having a advisor that breaks his own rules, catching corona was F***ing irresponsible and is totally undefendable, But because anything he and his advisors come up with has to go through a parliamentary vote, it makes his job harder than most other c...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

I think the problem is whoever is in power would be getting the same advice from the health professionals so what would they do? We know Kier Starmer would have taken exactly the same steps, only increased lockdowns earlier and not had a tier system, probable more national lockdowns. The libs fully ...

Re: Guess what date gigs will be back to normal (no social distancing)

Vaccine should be fully administered by March, so April is my best guess for a "normal" gig in a place like Rock City, its going to be really weird at first having people so close to you. I think thats going to be an issue going forward, people are going to be wary of other people getting ...

I don't even own a mobile phone, I hate talking on the phone, the wife has a samsung galaxy thing and is always on it though.
