LIVE MUSIC UPDATES 17 July 2020

Here is a quick re-cap of the current situation and a run thro of the events that have sadly had to be postponed this week coming up with us.

If you don't follow the Scot Gov guidance we are in phase 3 of lockdown easing which has meant various parts of the economy are allowed to re-start. Great new progress is happening but like Scot Gov would like to re-iterate for everyone to continue to act responsibly.

We took the decision, although known as the premier live music venue in West Lothian and Scotland's longest running Rock nightclub to re-open on Friday 17 July BUT only in PUB MODE as we call it.
Sadly that does mean no live music on the stage or Rock Club action upstairs with a host of measures to keep everyone safe who comes along and make it as enjoyable as it has been for nearly 50 years !

Part of Phase 3 did mention that Live Music in and outdoors will re-open BUT as yet and understandably certain things such as live music indoors could still be a wee bit down the line.
When that will be ? We all have to wait updated by Scot Gov and guidance issued around that.
So please be patient with us a wee bit longer.
What form that will take, what restrictions on capacity based on social distancing are still all unknown at the time of writing this update, so again until guidance comes it's still a waiting game.

With that possible prolonged timescale which is unknown we are responsibly moving any large events that financially are not viable or that have already sold a massive amount of tickets which would most likely exceed any responsible limit into the future. We are taking our time to re-arrange things a wee bit at a time and as we have done through the last months keep you upto date and posting updates like this.

SO today I can confirm since the last LIVE UPDATE that :

Fuz Caldrin Event will be postponed to a yet set date but looking at something that will work with the lads and our hectic and mental schedule.

LOST DOGS on 25 July has been moved to 4th Sept 2020. Hopefully by then we will have guidance and a better idea when live music can operate.

HEAVY TRAFFIC on 31 July. We feel the event will most likely be postponed BUT as the lads are mad keen to play will stay pending at this time. This will be reviewed constantly and if any updates come from Scot gov that allows this to happen it will. HOWEVER be aware the chance are slim at best.

DSS plus support due to have taken place on Sat 1 Aug has been moved to 20 Feb 2021.
This was SOLD OUT so unless tickets are available thro refunds no tickets are on sale for new date.

GAGE from South Africa due to play on 7 Aug have been cancelled.

Black Celebration on Sat 8 August has been moved to Sat 27 Feb 2021.
Limited tickets available.

NORTH EAST INVASION on 29 August has been cancelled at this time due to logistics and financial implications to all involved coupled to the ongoing uncertainty.

KID KLUMSY 2 October has been cancelled. The lads, promoters over the multi date tour are finding it increasingly difficult to juggle what venues can open, when can open etc etc which will have a major effect on everyones finances so best to cancel the tour for now and re-group later in the year for a run at 2021.

EVERYTHING ELSE is constantly being reviewed that still remains on the schedule so please be patient as we try to heard up chickens and juggle many plates.
