This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Artists I had tickets for but won’t be seeing this year due to Covid 19 May 16, 2020

A reminder popped up on my phone last weekend that I was due to go and see Nick Cave in the Three Arena. Alas given the current circumstances it had been postponed. I had already missed out on David Gray but there were others coming up too that wouldn’t be going ahead. Guns N’ Roses in Marlay Park, a handy one in that it’s a short enough walk from the house there, so there’s no hassle getting there or back. The Frames were due to play in The Royal Hospital in Kilmainham, The Pixies in the Iveagh Gardens and God is as Astronaut in The Academy I think.
Given everything is postponed or rescheduled I can only hope that next Summer will be a great one for gigs.

I share your pain. About three gigs, not counting Horslips which fell by the wayside at St. Patrick’s Day, which have been cancelled, rescheduled or whatever. I do not think Duran Duran will be playing St. Anne’s Park this summer. I’d also wonder if those rescheduling to next year aren’t the most sensible. Difficult to see many gigs taking place before Christmas, isn’t it?

Yeah, really tough on artists and venues. They will hopefully work out something.

A lot of people are hurting. That said I am loving the way in which people are doing pop up kind of musical events, etc.

The last really packed venue I was in was the Brudenell Social Club in early March – they’ve now done a range of T-Shirts with the logo reconfigured as the Brudenell Social Distancing Club…..
They’re probably safer than some in that they own the freehold, and are a not for profit, but there’s a score of great venues here that will struggle – as you’ve said, WbS, how safe will people feel going to a gig? (or, in respect of your new passion, a football match? :))
