This gig may have been cancelled, but you can still party with us on Saturday night! Frank will be running a live YouTube premiere of his monumental 2000th show, recorded live here at Rock City! Find out more here.
Statement from the artist regarding the gig cancellation below:
Hi everyone. My team and I have obviously been following the news like hawks this last week, both at home and abroad, and working day and night to figure out what the best course of action is for upcoming shows. This is super stressful time for everyone, not least in the live music industry, which is facing nothing short of a catastrophe.
Looking at shows in the UK, it is with extremely heavy heart that I must announce that all shows as of now are not going ahead – Norwich, Winchester, Exeter, Liverpool and Nottingham. It’s not sustainable for us to continue, it doesn’t feel like the right decision, for us or for the audience, so we’re heading home. I know some will be disappointed by this – trust me, Micah, Jess and I are beyond gutted. Refunds will be made, and we’ll do our best to reschedule when we can, though right now it’s impossible to say when that might be.
Further afield, in the last couple of days, both Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and countries in South America have announced mandatory 14-day quarantine periods for new arrivals into the country, travel bans, and / or restrictions of live events. For obvious reasons, this means that my shows there, planned for next month, cannot go ahead.
I am really gutted about this, I was very much looking forward to returning to visit my friends there, and to visiting South America for the first time, but there are things in this world more important than my little shows. The gigs are cancelled, and refunds will be made, or are available at the point of purchase. I will do everything I can to get back to your shores as soon as possible, though again right now it’s difficult to say when exactly that will be. We’ll work on booking something in once everything has calmed down.
Other shows next month and for the foreseeable future are of course also something we’re looking at closely, and we’ll make announcements about them as soon as possible, and of course try and do the right thing by everyone. I’m looking into options for some live broadcast shows and fundraising ideas for the parts of the industry that are hardest hit by all this – news when I have it.
In the meantime, let’s all stay safe and healthy, wash our hands, listen to the advice of medical professionals, and be kind and considerate to our fellow humans in this trying time. Peace.
