Is that a Stephen King “The Standâ€� reference? 😂

Coronavirus cases creeping up in the UK, now one in West Yorkshire, great, another thing to add to my ever growing gig anxiety list of things that can go wrong!

Everybody in West Yorkshire start self-isolating now please! :lol: :lol:

Self-isolating seems very goth.

3 days left for the tour to kick start. Do we have a clue about any NME happening before that? :roll:

Very unlikely IMO. Too close now, and they seem to have changed base from Leeds to Antwerpen anyway.

What I do wonder about is what TSOM are doing the evening when AA Williams has her first ever headline show in London March 12? Probably just heading to Maastricht straight away, but the bands are touring together, so maybe attending at least?

Tour name? There's nothing on the tour shirt to suggest a name.

Apart from the typo tour.
2019 - London London Brussels Brussels Stockholm Paris Utrecht
2020 - Leeds & Nottingham, so far anyway. And Frankfurt. And Manchester with huge thanks to Gothicbiff

Not Frankfurt

Given what's unfolding I'll be surprised if this tour continues past this weekend.

They should cancel the next gig already. It’s not worth the risk. Would make it a lot easier for everyone to announce ASAP

I'm on hold with the airline right now, hoping to be able to transfer our tickets to a date in the summer rather than lose them outright (update: they were notably unhelpful). It's a damn shame too, because I honestly think they sound better than they have in ages.

The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside.

Is this definitel? Honestly it does seem sensible. I think I'll try to head home today if so.

maybe someone should try to confirm with Ben or something before jumping the gun. Still a matter of judgement whether to go but neither the venue nor the Sisters' site seem to say it's postponed.

Sadly yes, I was told before the Notts gig by someone who would know

The next two have now been pulled by the venues
