  1. I’m supposed to be getting married on 13th June and Glasto was our “mini-moon” As of now, wedding is still on but I’m fearing the worst. If that gets cancelled too I’ll be inconsolable. Reading this and trying my damndest to be positive but I’m struggling guys. Really struggling.
  2. I’m a Chartered Insurance Broker. I can’t see how the Chancellor can “make this insured” like he has a magic wand. It doesn’t work like that. I think this is a red herring/popularity soundbite/bullshit.
  3. Gutting as this is it can’t be as bad as 2017. I couldn’t go and almost cried watching the headliners on TV. That’s the only one I’ve missed since 2009.
  4. Feel so flat. I’d ordinarily go to the pub but can’t even fucking do that! 😭
  5. We still have relatively few confirmed cases and even fewer which require hospital care. I think the issue is failure to take preventative measures now will bury the NHS in a month or 2. That said, Wakefield was a ghost town this morning. Seriously weird seeing it so empty on a weekday.
  6. Obviously no expertise here but I always try to avoid tabloid sources and read up. There was a piece in (I think) New Scientist on-line which drew comparisons to other viral epidemics. Symptomatically and in terms of mortality rate, incubation period and virulence it said it was closest to influenza C or D, but seemingly more dangerous for elderly and with a lesser effect on children.
  7. No idea. They’ve sent a reassurance email but the language is very legalese/non-committal. It’s laying heavy on my mind but I guess ultimately out of my control. I looked at insurance for cancellation (I work in the field) in Jan but none of the policies I read would have covered pandemic or government action anyway.
  8. This is my fear. We’ll likely be over the worst of it by May/June, but would the authorities risk a second wave? Very much doubt it. I’m supposed to get Married in June too in the Lakes. If that gets stopped (100+ people) then it’s no Wedding, no Glasto and potentially £15k out of pocket. All over what is basically a bad outbreak of “flu”. Fuck. 😞
  9. They’re bloody brilliantly. ❤️
  10. My plan exactly. Come on Eavii, don’t do this to me. Friday PLEASE.
  11. Dear God. I know I said you don’t exist, but, y’know, bygones. Anyway please please please make sure the Manics play Friday and NOT Saturday. Many thanks, amen and all that. 4AM.
  12. Manics could clash too. God I hope they play Friday. 🙏
  13. Please no. I had cold dread of this clash when I saw they were both playing. It’s like Sophie’s Choice.
  14. Hope this scans. Macca for Saturday, PSB for Sunday and Friday free for something else. Hopefully Supergrass headline in the Park. 🤞
  15. Think Aerosmith are still trying to shift £175 tickets for their UK arena tour. That would explain them not wanting to be on the list.
  16. Maybe add the Manics. Always great.
  17. Macca, Diana Ross, Supergrass, TLC. There’s LOADS I want to see but the is my will not miss list so far. Mainly as I’ll never see them again. Yes, I have varied tastes.
  18. Just thinking he must be ancient. Those high notes will be a painful memory.
  19. I would literally sing and dance myself into the grave to this.
  20. Been puzzling over Supergrass. Had JP or Park in mind. JP Sunday headline makes the most sense, juggling the options.
  21. I reckon he’d pull a massive crowd to be fair. Maybe to divide numbers when Macca is on?
  22. This. I think my record for “want to see” acts on poster day is about 20 in 2013. I’ve 25-ish on this. expected Aerosmith and Alicia Keys but to be fair, if they end up on the line up I’ll be sweating over the clashfinder like a crack addict on giro day.
