Same for Germany, no mass events before September 1st.

... so Cologne is off as well ...

on the positive side, I hope rescheduling means we get a looong CROWDED HOUSE gig in Belgium instead of the mere one-hour "warm up to Sir Paul McCartney" that had been planned on June 21st at WERCHTER

I see the UK dates have now been rescheduled to June 2021.  There is no mention of Manchester (the one I was going to!).  I assumed because that was part of a festival of sorts that it is going to be cancelled.  A further blow that I didn't get tickets for my local show (Glasgow) and now the best tickets will be gone (although they were extortionate anyway - I don't know if I could justify £100+ per ticket, as much as I love Neil/CH).

My tickets for Glasgow cost £40 . I think that’s an absolute bargain

Stuart, are you at the back?  When I previously looked (out of curiosity as I already had Manchester tickets) then the main 3 blocks on the floor were £170/£140, the next tier of tickets was £110, then £73.  There may have been some cheaper, but I didn't look any further back. 

I couldn't believe those prices to be 'close'.  I didn't think you'd find hundreds (thousands?) of people willing to pay £100+ for Crowded House arena tickets.  Looks like I was wrong, as when I looked today you can only get 'single' seats in the main 3 sections on the floor.  My judgements of what is popular and how much people are willing to pay for something are pretty unreliable, to be fair! 

I've never paid over £100 to see anyone, and I've seen some pretty big acts, even in smaller venues.  It feels like a bit of a mental barrier for me if I'm honest.

I don’t think I’m the furthest back I could be . I’m sure there are seats further back . I felt for the size of venue it would be difficult to get seats that were that close in any event , so I’m really happy just to be there to be honest . If what you’re saying is true , I’m glad the band still has the pulling power ! I have to admit I wondered if the hydro was biting of more than they could chew - but obviously not ! 

They are clearly not at the peak of their fame . I saw them at the Glasgow Concert Hall on the Together Alone your , and that holds less than 3 thousand !

I’m gutted that so much of life ( including a Crowded House tour ) is being put on hold for an entire year

 

The only positive is that you’d imagine the new album will be out and about before the tour which will make it easier to promote - and possibly help chart sales ?

That must've been special Stuart.  I'd think the RCH is less than 2,000 capacity.  It's a great venue.  Like you, I thought the Hyrdo was too big, given they played the Auditorium for the Intriguer tour.  To jump from 3,000 to 10-12,000 seemed optimistic.  Even more so with the prices, but it shows what I know!

I'll pick up tickets for Glasgow if (when) Manchester is cancelled.  I'll be in the £40-75 seats if that's the case.  We were within 10 or 15 rows at the SECC (TOE) and Auditorium (Intriguer), so it will be disappointing to be quite far back, but better to be there than not!

Yes that’s how I felt too . It’s in no way an intimate venue , but there’s no way I’d want to miss out . 

I'm glad they cancelled and rescheduled. No way are things going to be safe enough in two three months time, and it would be entirely selfish to let these events happen. Just look at Neil's attitude to the whole situation 👍🏻

Another big reason why 2021 will be the best year ever 🎉

The announcement for Manchester will follow soon apparently, just awaiting confirmation. 

Does anyone who has tickets for the London shows know if they're offering refunds if you can't make it to the new dates?

I'm wondering if there's any chance of a returned tickets sale, cause I've got tickets for Manchester (presumably also about to be rescheduled) but would really like to see them at the Roundhouse too.

Refunds: as far as the UK is concerned, consumer rights protection legislation and codes of practice require ticket-sellers to refund the face value of the ticket if the event is cancelled.  If the event is postponed but you cannot make the date, the same applies.  You won't get back the booking/admin fees though.  There's a useful page of info on Which? magazine site: 

https://www.which.co.uk/news/2...i-get-my-money-back/

Trouble is, sellers for every conceivable sort of cancelled or postponed event or service (or flight, or whatever) will be deluged with requests for refunds and many are making it very difficult, or even invisible, to know how to go about it.  No-one in the entertainment sector is putting refunds up as a headline - they can't afford the massive cost all in one go.  So postponements are a sort of halfway house.  I work (used to work!!!  past tense ) on a Box Office and we are only offering postponements at this stage.

I'll hold out for the new dates, but am trying for refunds for other artists' gigs I've got tickets for.  Assuming Green Man Fest (mid-Aug) won't be happening either

I managed to get some decent seats for the rescheduled Glasgow show for an OK price (£75 each) this morning. I'm assuming Manchester will be cancelled and not rescheduled, and we'll get our money back for that. I'll have a dilemma whether to try and do both next year if it is rescheduled, but I'm unlikely to get much support at home for that!!
