Awww shit, i didn't expect them to sell out by the evening. Then again, this is not going to be a short term thing where everything goes back to normal so i'm going to have to accept that this year (at a minimum) is a right-off.

Some advice if anyone can help. I was hoping to stay in Bristol on the Saturday night to make it easier to get to the airport on Sunday morning. I was checking earlier and it looks as though the last train from Cardiff to Bristol is around 22:50. Anyone know if there are later buses from Cardiff to Bristol?

Given that we're very unlikely to have a vaccine by December, is having thousands of NHS staff packed into one room necessarily a good idea?

Thought the same but didn't want to be a downer. I appreciate the intention but it's likely that this might get cancelled because of restrictions anyway, but having it in the middle of cold and flu season seems utterly bizarre to me.

Yeah, I mean the idea is obviously absolutely wonderful and incredibly generous, but it does seem a little... short sighted, maybe.

They're not the first to have this idea. So far off the top of my head there's Paul Heaton and Jaqui Abbott, Rick Astley, Fatboy Slim, Liam Gallagher.. all scheduled before these.

Eh, seen loads of gigs getting rescheduled for September onwards but nowt earlier. Can't help but feel that that may be a bit on the optimistic side like. I've got tickets for both nights but I accept the very real possibility that we might not know for sure whether they're going to go ahead or not for ages.

A vaccine is still 12-18 months away. So are arena shows.

The lockdown will be lifted before then, and probably quite soon, but social distancing restrictions will be with us for a long time.

Eh, fuck knows. No shortage of evidence that the government prioritises the economy over public health and welfare. Well, their policies have been killing the poor and vulnerable for years, chances are if Covid-19 were a person they'd be in line for a cabinet position.

I'm surprised by just how many gigs and tours have been announced and rescheduled meself but I''m glad they are. Even if they don't go ahead as planned, it's good to have something to look forward to in these crazy times, for now at least.

Fucked if I'm even gonna try to guess where we go from here tbh.
