I know nobody knows what's gonna happen in the near future, nevermind 2021, but if no gigs til autumn 2021, there's gonna be a hell of a lot of bands (and comedians etc), going tits up.
Really can't see any major gigs happening this year anyway.

Until there’s a vaccine, the fun-bus is off the road in almost every aspect.

So Online gigs the future? pay for access and just bands playing in empty venues.

While I like getting drunk at home by myself as much as the next fella, if that was my only way to experience a gig it'd be awful miserable.

That is an American website so what might be true there might not necessarily be the case here. But once again who knows? What we may see is a lot more new albums being recorded over the next 6 months or so.

A few people I know who work for touring bands in various capacities have all been "unofficially" told that they can reasonably expect to have the rest of the year off.

It's certainly not beyond the realms of possibility. This current lockdown is gonna be in place until June at the earliest, and when it ends restrictions will be tapered down rather than just lifted, to see what happens regatding another wave of infection when social interaction starts returning (by degrees) toward some kind of normality.  That takes us to somewhere around mid-august/September, if we base timescale projections on what we've had so far.

Realistically, barring the discovery/deployment of a miracle cure, id say it's not unreasonable to assume that we've had all we're getting this year.

So what's everyones gig of 2020? The wildhearts/backyard babies in the limelight by default take it, although it was a great night.

The Picturebooks in Whelans at the beginning of March. Amazing night and probably our last gig of the year. Fond memories....

Wrestling without the crowd is so incredibly dull that I can't watch it.

Urban Assault, Cork - deadly night on Fri 28 Feb. Sacrilegia were fantastic. Can't speak for the next night as not able to get to it, but by other accounts it was also a rager.
