I've got a few concerts booked next year (feb,may and November) I'm thinking of booking one for January.
Do you think they will go ahead?
Or shall I not bother booking

Personally I think January no chance. Sorry.

I doubt it

I don't think so either tbh.
It's a standing and seating one at a large arena.
You couldn't social distance at all.

March at the earliest- imho

Def not until next spring. And that’s optimistic I think! There will come a point more normal life will resume with gatherings but I can’t see it being until the latter half of next year!

I have tickets for a few shows which have been rescheduled from this year to early next year. I doubt they'll go ahead to be honest. What's really galling is that I bought them from Ticketmaster and within days of the pandemic being declared, they changed their Ts&Cs - before, if a show was rescheduled, you could keep your ticket for the new date or get a refund. In fact the first email I got about a rescheduled show offered a refund. However pretty quickly they changed it so no refunds were available.

I'm higher risk so even if the shows in March/April go ahead, I'm not sure I'd want to go, but I can't get refunds. Seems quite shoddy that they changed their terms at a time when lots of people will be unable to make the new dates for whatever reasons.

So I've got tickets for gigs at the Hydro in Glasgow for Feb & March next year.
Can't see how we can go from only 6 people allowed in a house to 14,000 allowed in a venue singing & dancing in less than six months.

I doubt it though we've booked one for February anyway as everything this year was rescheduled so if it doesn't go ahead it'll be rescheduled or refunded anyway.

Unlikely.
We don't know when Bilie Eilish is rescheduling yet.

Even glastonbury have mentioned they might move to autumn 2021.
