While a positive Covid test means being isolated during some days, no US big headliner will tour Europe. 

The only option nowadays for US big bands is one gig or a one week/10 days tour.

The feeling I have in Spain is that pessimism has come back to big promoters. We have 120.000 infected people per day, maximum in the pandemic and I am afraid that some huge acts are starting to consider the idea of postponing their tour to 2023. I hope that things will look totally different in February. Figers crossed!!!

 

How do you know that US bands are canceling European tour?

From what I've seen so far, noone cancel it, but yeah beaing negative is fucked up.

Can they just put mandatory vaccine for all of them without testing?

There's none so far but it doesn't mean there won't be one. The Streets cancelled all of their dates for next year because of Covid (including Rock Werchter) and they're not even from the US. We have to accept that some people are more cautious than the rest of us...

🤮🤮🤮 just fuck off

If you were in the government what would you do? We can't let people being sick and dying. 

I'm desperate with the situation, I'm waiting for some show for 2 years. I just don't blame the decision.

stupid covid passes

These passes made it possible for big, huge, some of the biggest festivals in the world, to happen in 2022. They will be key for this season for sure.

RW normally never bump up artists. I'm 99% sure we'll get a replacement for them. 

Based on the last two posters there's (roughly) 8 headline sized acts and 25 mid-range, we have our 8 big names on the poster so we're due about 6 more after FNM and The Streets dropping.

My guesses would be something along the lines of BMTH, Wolf Alice, Bastille, Slowthai, Little Simz, Idles.

Indeed. You should stay at home if you're affraid of virus. 

In 60's we had pandemics of flu and we had Woodstock. People are dying, that's reality, but what sort of life will be living in cage?

Flue is not to compare.. stay at home you say but where People go after a mass event? To home..

I would allow all the events. I will not terrorize people with stupid covid passes. And it will be your decision to get a vaccine or stay at home blablabla. Simple as that

Allow all events without restrictions? Its craziness . People from all over the world bringing together , perfect place to create mass infection and new variants.  Then everybody goes home and you ll see what happens. As long its not your father, mother or grandparents that got seriously sick there s no problem and you can party? 

Better take the decision for obligate vaccination in whole world. Would solve much problems

I don't blame government, health is the most important thing and they've no other choice. Omicron still a more dangerous than other virus and if for the health of everyone we must given up live show I'll understand.

Its True, makes little less sick but not to everybody. Unvaccinated make life more difficult then needed . 

I also want live music back. But i read here somebody saving living in a Cage. You really feel that way? Much things are still possible.

For me being vaxxed and not doing things that I want to is living in a cage.

Yes, it's the reason why, music industry has to change and gain money more on creativity rather than live show even if there is streaming.

I love live show but in the next few years, I don't think it'll be possible to have big show, maybe small tour in small venue but not mass event like festival.

Then they should shut down all the music industry.

You can have online events, but there are not even close to real live music.

We did what we can with vaccines really, virus will be around probably forever.

I couldn't help but notice - Nine Inch Nails are playing Hellfest so are in the local area. Any chance they'll show up As a Faith No More replacement or otherwise? 

Would make sense and be great for me personally. I think NiN probably have a few unannounced dates for next year considering they've got 3 random festival dates throughout the year.

We are early January. Things can change quickly. Yes, Omicron is here but lot of countries are giving a 3rd vaccine/booster. Let's have some hope people! Come on! Remember that less than 3 months ago, in October, life was coming back to almost normal, I honestly thought we couldn't be in a situation like we are today. It's Winter. We may have some hope cases and variant will be less present when Spring is coming. Festivals need to know lot of time in advance. Let's hope the gov' will be a better job this time. From mid-February, we should have a unique Covid Passeport in all Europe (at least European Union), it may help. At least to have the same rules everywhere. Let's see in a few weeks what's the situation.

Last Summer, many festivals happened in UK. A few festivals like Alcatraz happened in Belgium. A few festivals in other European countries as well. Without being the beginning of a new crisis. So it's possible. Keep hope. If you don't, how bands and promoter can? 🙂

About Rock Werchter, as it's this topic: I'm pretty sure they'll find a good replacement for Faith No More. At least to motivative a public a little bit different than the fans of ID/21P/Yungblud...

The problem is that during the summer situation is always better and in October he have better situation than now during the winter. 

Artists need to be sure that they can do entire tour without problems and at the moment they can't be sure about that and that's the reason why some of them already cancel tour.

For example, one US artist needs to be sure that they can do one/two month European without getting positive. Looks like they need to test themselves even being vaccinated.
