Fans have been wondering whether the David Gray Liverpool gig and further dates will go ahead.
In times like these, music feels more important than ever.
Due to current circumstances, the public has been urged to avoid all non-essential contact, with Boris Johnson addressing in a statement: “We need people to start working from home where they possibly can. And you should avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues.”
Updates are coming thick and fast, informing us of which places are closing their doors. Recently, such cinemas chains as Cineworld and Odeon have confirmed temporary closures following government guidelines.
Inevitably, those who have holidays booked are worried, as are those with gig tickets they’ve purchased in advance.
Already, many musicians have informed fans they’ll be postponing their shows until a later date. Lots of these announcements are for gigs way down the line, but with David Gray’s White Ladder Anniversary Tour, there hasn’t been a great deal of notice…
Is the David Gray Liverpool show rescheduled?

Of course, it’s not just the Liverpool date, but the entire tour.
