To misquote Woody Allen.
Flipping heck! We purchased tickets over two years ago to see Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott in Killarney. Then along came Covid and all the restrictions like the 5kms rule and the guards stopped your car and asked you "why you are going shopping...?"
The concerts been rescheduled and cancelled many times since. Then the other day we got an email saying the concert is now going to be held in DUBLIN in June at St Anne's Park and Deacon Blue are supporting them. Don't get me wrong. Deacon Blue are a great band and 'Dignity' is an absolute belter of a song. But I don't think I will be going all the way to Dublin and paying to stay in a hotel. So it looks like we will have to get our money back, sadly.
Any road or anyway. I noticed Clannad (I have seen them 3 times) are playing some Irish venues this week on their last ever world tour. So after much persuasion I persuaded the missus to go to see them. So we purchased tickets and I played You Tube videos of Clannad last night to get us both excited about the concert.
Now to put the tin hat on it. I got an email this morning to say some of the band and road crew have tested positive for Covid and they have had to cancel the tour and hopefully reschedule the tour. Flipping heck again.
Some things are not meant to be!
