2022 has arrived and Covid-19 is still heavily impacting the live music scene with case numbers remaining high and gig cancellations are again on the rise. Venues are still having to remain fluid often operating at reduced capacities, while some have succumbed to the drawn out and extensive loss of income and closed their doors for good. This may well be the general rule with gigs until the majority are fully vaccinated and numbers of active cases significantly drop.

It concerns me that people will end up with 'cancellation fatigue' with the constant changing of dates and having to refund tix and so won't want to commit to an event that may not go ahead. 

Hopefully life will settle somewhat soon. I am looking forward to seeing you all at a gig sometime soon whatever that form may take.

Most importantly you can still support your favourite artists by buying their music and merchandise online. Keep a watch for updates on live shows, online concerts and music events.

Let us all be kind, be patient and take care of each other.
