News are going crazy here about the corona virus, closed borders, James Blunt and Gianna Nannini doing online concerts. Will the situation change this summer ?!?!
Given how fast events are unfolding with regards to the corona virus pandemic, I'd be quite surprised if the European tour went ahead - especially since a number of the shows are festival appearances. With Italy in total lockdown and the World Health Organisation calling for more aggressive action from other countries to slow the spread of the virus, I think we are going to see an avalanche of cancellations/postponments of any events involving large gatherings.
I also expect the Byron Bay Bluesfest scheduled for next month to be cancelled.
hate to say it, but the way things are moving, iut's only a matter of time before we will hear festival shows cancelled.
