  • I’m guessing none now sadly. Rescheduled for
    Later this year hopefully, maybe when the FM reissue is released? Is that a no it autumn time?
  • I work with schools so I'll be dead by next week anyway if twitter is to be believed. Also hello, been a while :)>-
  • I'll be going to Edinburgh, however I doubt very much it'll be going ahead.  Even if it's seems somewhat okay right now for the gig, the way things are going I reckon by the 27th things will be even worse.

    I don't hold out much hope sadly :(
    Soon be nothing of this world.
  • Hi Steve, hope all is well with your good self.
  • Not too bad thanks, yknow all this end of days stuff aside! Hope all's good with you too :)

    I'm Edinburgh too, I've been keeping an eye on the Usher Hall pages, they seem to be communicating a lot. They have this list on their site with cancelled/rescheduled events but Frapp aren't on there yet - http://www.usherhall.co.uk/coronavirus-covid-19-update-audiences-and-visitors
  • it's looking likely the Birmingham gig will be cancelled/rescheduled.

    I'm kind of happy actually, i don't think id be comfortable sitting around a large amount of people in an enclosed environment like that.

    Obviously im super gutted i won't get to see them perform, but hopefully in the not too distant future i will again when everything is settled.
  • I've tweeted Goldfrapp and Manchester's Albert Hall to see if there's any information available.

    It's really frustrating that there has been little information, or statement whether the gigs are going ahead or are to be rescheduled.  They probably don't know what to do for best as the Government are being their usual grey selves and as a vague as ever.

    I think the gigs will be rescheduled to coincide with the re-release of the Felt Mountain Boxset in the autumn.

  • Nice to see all the boys and gals coming back to the yard, even if it’s not for milkshakes!
    Facebook is a cesspit of conspiracy theories and portents of doom so stay off it is my advice.
    This is a good source of reliable info and you can click on each country for a more in depth info. I believe the info comes from the WHO, and not the duplicitous, skanky charlatans we currently have in power lying their arses off!
    Look at the graphs for each country and ask ‘where are they projections of 250k dead coming from?’ There are currently only 185k total cases in the world and China, who are 3 weeks ahead of everyone else, appears to be flattening out.

  • Well said UT :)
    I have been aghast (but not surprised) at this 'government's' ineptitude handling this crisis! The data is clear and they can see what happens from the countries that are weeks ahead of us! But they just think with their pockets, as usual. How to transfer the cost to the poor and keep the rich insulated!

    In a side not, I am glad to see my SOPHIE banner is still working :)
    And that I could remember my very simple password.

  • Puts it into perspective those Meters.
    People who died of hunger, TODAY!..17,500 when I looked at 13:48 
    Sophie_Banner
  • I just looked that up and it said on average, 98,630 people die of hunger every day in the world.
    36,000,000 a year. 
    Total deaths in the world so far (7 weeks) due to Covid-19, 7,513.
    Sobering.

  • They should still tour, but tour not arenas but rooms, One
    performance from kitchen, other from bedroom,etc, etc. Then move to
    Will's house. Everyone wins
