7th AUGUST LONDON SHOW POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to the ongoing 10-day quarantine obligation for non-vaccinated-in-the-UK citizens entering the UK, we have sadly had to decide to postpone my 7th August show at London’s Kingsplace . We debated on whether we should announce a new date, but I personally pushed for no actual date to be announced, because what is the point of announcing a date when we have zero clue about what the future holds, since it is not just the Covid situation we have to take into account, but also the errr… how shall I put it… “bizarre” UK political decisions.
When I learnt I was going to be fully vaccinated several weeks before the show, I felt so good, as I naively assumed that this would exempt me from quarantine. Indeed, back in March when I had been offered the show, this was the first thing I raised with the team at Kings Place, but of course, we all felt fairly confident that by August, surely this quarantine would not be mandatory anymore, at least not for fully-vaccinated people…
It feels weird to postpone this show given it was going to be my final show for many years, if not ever (I know that some of you have missed this news, since you are leaving messages such as “Hope you come and play in X place one day”, so just so you know: I won’t play live any more after this show, which was the only one I accepted), but at this stage 1) I’d rather we were sure that we can fulfill the new date when we do announce it 2) I’d rather do this show next year and perhaps even get the chance to play 2 new albums 3) In the grand scheme of things, considering how prolonged this whole Covid situation is, and the much more serious ramifications it has for so many people… well I really don’t feel like adding to the ocean of already-existing complaints.
You can retain the tickets or obtain a refund, as you choose. Thanks so much in advance for your understanding, and see you in London AT SOME POINT
