    I have list of (around 15) concerts/events that I would like to buy tickets for but at the moment I'm not, because it is very difficult to know what's going to happen. I have some that have already been postponed for 2021 and dates start getting close to each other on rescheduling.

    The good thing is that many of them aren't the classic quick sold out type of gigs, therefore I will be able to find tickets for many of them even later on.

    I really can't see many concerts happening before March. Many bands would have a tour schedule that would be financially viable if they were to do all gigs, and it is likely that we will have some levels of restrictions during the winter which would defer from country to country, thus making planning for artists a bit more difficult. This would be one year with no concerts!!! :eek: I reckon that when they restart I will want to go to as many as possible, even ones that I would have only a passing interest on the artist. In the meantime, I decided to start going through my Music DVD collection - not the same feeling obviously, but I guess it will have to do for now :)

    I got a ticket for the missus to see Tom Jones in July. Surprised if it happens, although if all the over 70s are vaccinated the audience will be safe :D

    Originally bought tickets for Rammstien (belfast) in July 2019, it's currently rescheduled for Jun 12th and I'm fully expecting it to get pushed to 2022, three years will defietely be the longest between buying tickets and actually getting to the gig.

    I have tickets for Le Guess Who festival in Utrecht in November. It's in the lap of the gods...


  • Registered Users Posts: 145 ✭✭T.V Eye


    I’ve started to hold fire because gigs and other bits are being rescheduled to the same date. I’ll see the lay of the land in the summer before I buy anything else.

    I always think of Boomtown Rats when i hear about The Boomtown Fair festival. Thinking they must be the headliners or something like Ozzfest :D

    Just bought one for Deicide. Pencilled in for the Academy in April so hopefully we'll be in significantly better shape by then.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,536 ✭✭✭RINO87


    Grandbrothers in Cork in October! The last time they played here was one of the best gigs i have ever seen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,453 ✭✭✭EyesClosed


    Nice to see this thread alive again.
    I've recently picked up tickets for offspring and less than jake... 15 year old me is buzzing.

    I'm thinking of getting madness tickets as I've never seen em.

    I technically bought a ticket to the Leinster match this Friday. Which feels like a gig, all things considered! :)

    Done the same should be a belter of a gig!

    Jaysus that takes me back.

    Mdou Moctar, Sugar Club
    Dry Cleaning, Button Factory

    There was between 20-30 people present the first time Dry Cleaning played here. Sound was unreal. Unfortunately it will be a packed house next time.
