    Well, I decided to cancel my whole Europe trip this summer. If the show goes on as planned or they reschedule to September (which I wouldn't be able to make), I guess I'll miss it. We'll see what happens...

    Barcelona did a concert tonight with 5000 people indoors with masks and without distancing.  They had to take antigen tests earlier in the day.  The event was for research purposes to see how infection rates among attendees compare with those of the general population.  That’ll be interesting to see over the next few weeks.  I don’t think vaccination was a requirement for this one.  
    There was a similar experiment in the Netherlands this past week for an outdoors music festival with 5000 fans. They're going to report some initial findings in the next week. One early finding- tho attendees were asked to remain masked during the event, nearly everyone ditched their masks as soon as they entered, so enforcement of that particular measure seems futile. Not entirely surprising when everyone is smashing back the beers tbh... difficult to drink when you've got a mask on.

    Do they plan on testing full capacity? 
    I’m not sure but I think the 5000 was full capacity at the particular venue including a packed floor.

    The picture I saw looked like a packed floor.

    Palau Sant Jordi in Barcelona, where this experiment took place, has a capacity of 17500. 5000 was not full capacity, but the 5000 people were all in the pit

    drfox said: Indeed. And another couple of festivals that announced their line ups this week (TRNSMT and Victorious) also have all British Line ups (Royal Blood, Liam Gallagher etc)
    Southsea Victorious? It's literally a 10-minute walk for me. I'm probably attending only one day (Sunday) this year. I've never seen Morcheeba live though... :pensive: I wish PJ headline Victorious one day. :prayer:
    Skye is back in Morcheeba again these days isnt she? Be well worth catching them if so.
    Precisely. That's the main reason why I want to see them.

    Ooh, yeah! All right!

    It sucks.  I hope they announce dates for 2022 soon as need to get started on moving reservations to next year.

    Rational me: I'll just wait until I hear more from the festival itself. If I can go, I go. If I can't go, I'll eat the tickets and live with it.

    Hello,

    It is with a heavy heart that we announce that BST Hyde Park will not take place in July 2021. 
     
    We are however happy to share that Duran Duran and Pearl Jam will go ahead in July 2022. 
     
    Pearl Jam will take place on the Friday 8th and Saturday 9th July 2022. Friday 8th will feature special guests Pixies, whilst Saturday July 9th will welcome a new guests artist (to be announced) - as well as full supporting line ups. If you have tickets for Friday 9th July 2021 they are only valid for Friday 8th July 2022 and if you have tickets for Saturday 10th July 2021 they are only valid for Saturday 9th July 2022
     
    Duran Duran will take place on Sunday 10th July 2022 and will be rejoined by their incredible guest - Nile Rodgers & CHIC with further acts to be confirmed soon.
     
    All tickets remain valid for the scheduled 2022 dates. If you are no longer able to attend the rescheduled dates you can request your refund HERE before Friday 30th April 2021.
     
    Following our review of the most recent government advice, the latest timeline means that we are unable to deliver with certainty the quality BST Hyde Park is known for in the time available. By making this decision at this stage we allow artists, crew, fans and everyone that comes together to help create these shows to plan accordingly.
      
    We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the NHS and all the incredible organisations and individuals who have been working tirelessly in these past twelve months to keep the country safe. Your efforts are enormously appreciated.

    And with that, an email from BST.... Seems pretty clear, but need to claim your refund if you want one by April 30th 2021...

    Good news is that we don't need to fanny about getting in early for the 10c tickets for a third time.
  • whitepantswhitepants Posts: 674
    I requested a refund. I was set to see PJ in London for the first time in that city in 20 and 21, I can't commit to 22 in good faith. I'll just focus on a future visit to London. Perhaps a miracle will happen, but I doubt it.

    Third time lucky! Can't believe they didn't add another night as compensation this time around! Ha. 

    Also.... bit disappointed that Idles are no longer on the bill. Would have quite happily dropped the Pixies out of the two guests TBH.

    Is there a way to still get tickets to the 10c area?

    Booked different shows for 2020/2021 but might wanna go 2022.

    I just looked and as of right now, the 10C area is sold out. Maybe some will open up after people get refunds.

    Are 10C tickets for these shows transferrable, or are they printed with and attached to the name of the person who originally bought them? I thought I read that was the practice for some European shows. This would be my first attempt to go overseas to see a show, so I am in the dark on this stuff.

    Hopefully we'll be vaccinated in Ireland by then  =)

    Purely a guess but i dont think they'll  have a name printed on it. All the shows I've been to that have done that have expressly told the buyer at point of purchase that this will be the case, and there was no indication it would be done for these shows.

    Thanks I am holding off for know on buying general admission with hopes I can find some in the 10C area if they are available or if someone can transfer them.

    I think that is wise.  There are 15 months to search after all!
