That's just england though, the welsh government have their own rules and haven't yet committed to any reopening date for large venues. At the moment the devolved nations are acting in a far more responsible manner than whatever the blonde nightmare's government is up to.

And once again, even if it's allowed to go ahead, is it really wise to have employees of the service that's on the frontline helping people with the virus all packed into one place where it can spread quickly?

James said in a recent interview that the gigs will happen, even if they can't happen in December, they'll be moved to a later date.

The arena’a capacity (5000) is 0.36% of the total NHS workforce (1.4 million). I think we’ll be okay!

All gigs have 2nd and 3rd dates. So it will happen. When is very much the question. I hear MSP will now begin daily briefings including excellent slides on the progress of the pandemic, and Wires setlist notes. No questions from the media.

Just seen a post on Facebook about Idlewild postponing their November tour. Not heard of anything scheduled for December being postponed yet, don't know if anyone else has?

Even if they do go ahead in December, and it's a big if, I'm not sure if I'd want to go. Alright, anxiety's nowt new to me so a pandemic is just the icing on the cake really. Have been finding myself a bit panicky when people get a bit too close for comfort with the whole social distancing thing. Wouldn't have been an issue at the Leeds RIF gig, mind.

I'm not suggesting the whole of the NHS will fall apart as a result, just that NHS workers are just about the last people I'd want to pack 5,000 of into a small space given the possibility of worsening figures in the winter.

I get that, but also they hang out in hospitals and with ill people all day long. They’ve probably calculated that it can’t be much worse than a day at work.

I'm with you on this. Hadn't booked a flight and cancelled my hotel a few weeks back. If it does go ahead I'll probably just sell my ticket.

The same here. I haven't booked flights nor B&B yet, and am carefully keeping an eye on the Japanese government policy on border control. If they would keep the current restrictions on returning travellers from abroad in the coming months, and if the concerts would go ahead, I'll probably have to give up going.
I can't decide yet what to do with my ticket, though.

The way things are at the minute i can't see it going ahead. Possibly rescheduled to Spring next year. I've had a few other gigs postponed until March and November next year.

These dates are 100% postponed. Not officially postponed but still 100% postponed. Not 99.9%.

If a vaccine was suddenly made available tomorrow, these shows would still be postponed due to the time it would take to get it to everyone.
