Rammstein, unsurprisingly, rescheduled again, a year later, to June 2022. Expecting Faith No More (currently 12 June) to get moved again. Front 242 now (hopefully) Feb 2022. Have a ticket for Einstürzende Neubauten in September (fingers crossed), Therapy? tour might be OK the following month…

Just bought tickets to see Squid in London in September. Probably the hottest new band on the planet right now. So excited.

Also fingers crossed will also be getting tickets tomorrow to see them in June at the community centre in Cliftonville, Margate. It will be a *tiny* socially distanced gig - seated, so no dancing, alas, but could well be amazing.

ETA: tickets now confirmed for the latter. It's going to be fantastic.

I'm obviously feeling the effects of a year with no social life and have gone a bit mad on the ticket buying front... turns out the wonderful Katy J Pearson and Jane Weaver are also playing at Elsewhere in Margate, in September and February respectively, so I've now got tickets to see them too.

I've got tickets to see Emily Cappell in that Brighton. I first (only) saw hersupporting Terry and Gerry (ob. YACF: That's the band turista OTP is in) at the Hundred Club a couple of years ago.  The gig isn't until November mind.

Never heard of her, so I looked her up. Apparently, she has "a wide range of influences from Dolly Parton to The Clash". Yep, that certainly is a wide range of influences!

Looks like lots of venues are still being very tentative about re-opening, which is understandable, but there is much planning ahead for happier times, which is good. Was discussing this with m'colleague the other day and she reckons she has never bought tickets so far in advance - she already has tickets for a couple of gigs in March next year.

Just been informed that the DBT gig I bought tickets for that was supposed to be autumn 2020 and was then postponed to June 2021 is now postponed again until June 2022.
I have never bought tickets that ended up being for a gig two years into the future before.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

My grate frend Mr Woolrich and I are still waiting to learn of the new date for John Mayall from late 2019 though that was originally postponed because Mr Mayall was ill with not-Coronalurgi.

Arab Strap in Bristol, September (frustratingly the rearanged Richard Dawson gig from March last year has been scheduled for the same date but I think I'm going to go Arab Strap as I've read their reunion shows have been very good and I think there will be more opportunities to see Richard Dawson in the future)
Yo La Tengo in Bristol, November (only doing a few UK dates so really pleased they're doing Bristol)
Godspeed you Black Emporer in Bristol, January
tindersticks in Bath and London, May (still have a ticket for their rescheduled Festival Hall show and they have a new European tour and have included Bath on the itineray)

I would have loved to see Pet Shop Boys, say, 20 years ago. One of my all-time favourites. But they've been off the boil for years now. My 13yo nephew is a massive fan, though, and his 11th birthday present was tickets to see them last year. The gig is now scheduled for next year. That must feel like forever at that age.

Not a massive fan of the other PSB but wouldn't turn down the opportunity to see them live. Enjoy, Pingu and hatler!

The aforementioned Squid gig in Margate is TOMORROW NIGHT!!!! Too exciting. This is the final date of their "Fieldworks" tour. Here's a review of the first night - "A krautrock kite caught in a prog-rock squall":

Why did no-one tell me about GY!BE comin' over 'ere?  I hate you all ;)

Two gigs in That London, one of which has already sold out.  Urgent communication with Miss von Brandenburg has been put into effect.

Looks like they are going to Glasgow but a)it's Glasgow and b)Barrowlands was manky enough even pre-Covids.
I was mainly sighing at all the nice places in Europe they're playing, which I would have been considering in the before times.

Ah.  I suspect the ticket shysters used the “location” wossname on this fondleslab and didn’t bother telling me about far-flung venues, though Coventry and Brizzle aren’t exactly next door.

I've bought tickets for 3 concerts at the RLPO, these will be my first since February last year I think.   A  tribute to Piazzolla tonight.  https://www.liverpoolphil.com/whats-on/classical-music/royal-liverpool-philharmonic-orchestra-viva-piazzolla/3931


I'm still a little dubious about being in a hall with others, even masked & distanced, but the audience skews middle to old aged, so should be vaccinated.

Stewart Lee at the Phil. Booked for last June and duly postponed until this June, Now postponed again until 17/6/2022.

He's busy writing a Covid remix for the new show.

Thanks to Pingu and hatler for revealing, in time for me to get tickets for Brixton in November, that I hadn't in fact signed up to the PSB mailing list.

I wasn't particularly a fan, but then got a freebie to see them at the Albert Hall two or three years ago. One of the best gigs - well, not so much a gig, more a live experience - I've been to, despite being in crap seats (well, they were free), and now I'm a convert.

I saw them at the Albert Hall about two or three years ago. The gig was superb. The finale was really stirring.
