I got six shows in before the shite hit the fan,
Oysterhead X 2
North Mississippi Allstars
Hot Tuna Electric
The Brothers Robinson Acoustic
Tons cancelled, The only one I requested a refund for was Buffalo Stones because that was a travel show. I had pit too.
The Who at Pryzm Nightclub in Kingston on Thames on 12th February 2020, the 1st of 4 shows they did. Great show, but that’s ummm, it
I can’t see any live music returning at any level until at least 2022 and even then with slowly loosening precautions. There’s a new much more contagious strain of the virus ripping through the South East of England and all 4 U.K. nations have now announced much tighter restrictions around Christmas and some time afterwards.
Most of us on here have some great memories of past gigs and unfortunately we’re gong to have to hang on to them until the coast is clear. Morrissey did a show at Wembley Arena in mid March with standing on the floor. My gig buddy from That Who gig in February was there with his son. No idea how it go the go ahead but it must have been one of the last major gigs before the March lockdown.
I saw Stay Home open for Do Nothing. Stay Home was smokin' hot. They blew Do Nothing off the stage and really stole the show, imho.
Black Country New Road, Edinburgh
Burns & Beyond Culture Trail (Blue Rose Code, KT Tunstall), Edinburgh
Roger Chapman - Family & Friends, Leicester
Ginger Baker Tribute (Eric Clapton & Friends), London
Music for the Marsden (John Illsley, Paul Carrack, Mike Rutherford, Paul Jones, Paul Young, Zucchero, Bonnie Tyler, Mick Hucknall, Nick Mason, Rick Wakeman, Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison, Tom Jones, Gary Brooker), London
That all-star charity event at the O2 turned out to be the last hurrah gigwise for me before the hunger that has since lasted over nine months...a feast before hibernation, sort of.
Dream gig of the year: double headliner tour of The Coronas and The Vaccines
Oh yeah, I saw Madonna at the Palladium and the Music for the Marsden, too.
In February-March I saw some great shows.
