Summer concerts

Recommended Posts

Do you think the summer concerts planned for Ashton Gate this summer, The Killers etc will be cancelled/postponed?

The BristolHarbour festival scheduled for July has been cancelled and the Ashton Gate concerts were scheduled for June. I would expect the club to make an announcement sooner rather than later, because if we do get a lull in this terrible virus I suspect the resumption of football would take priority over the concerts.

Only one concert this year, The Killers on the 9th of June I believe.

The probability of this going ahead, when everything else in the weeks before and after has already been cancelled, is next to zero, sadly.

I'm guessing the only reason it's not been pulled is so they can delay refunding for as long as possible

Perhaps waiting on The Killers to see if they're cancelling or postponing their tour? If postponing to following year they may try and keep all the same bookings and say tickets still valid, cancel if you can't make it

Yes maybe. We would have had our money from them months ago, so I guess it all depends too on whether Ashton Gate is cancelling other bookings for around that time, eg wedding parties, conferences etc and if we are already refunding them? 

Its a ccouple of weeks ago now, and things are of course changing rapidly, but I did see a message from The Killers that they had every intention of the tour going ahead. But like I said so much has escalated that it doesn’t seem remotely possible.

We were due to see Jimmy Carr in Colchester next month. Wife had an email yesterday saying that it has been rearranged for the end of August.

Hopeful, maybe? Could mean that things are expected to "hopefully" be clear by then? Personally I wouldn't expect to see anything like these events to happen until at least October/November, so expecting another cancellation. 

With the AG concert(s), I'd be amazed if it happens this year.
