Louder Than War Neck Label

Is everybody ready for the return of full capacity live gigs from July 19th?At last the gigs that are the backbone to our culture are being allowed to return. For weeks and even months of being slapped in the face by large crowds at sports events or shops, gyms and public transport being open with parameters we are being allowed live music again.

Of course, live music is a different beast than some of the previously listed and has its own unique circumstances – some of which make it so wonderful so we can sense some trepidation amongst the ranks out there but how do you feel about it all?

1. You are gung ho and ready to leap into the first mosh pit clutching your face mask.
2. Happy it’s back to normal and already have a list of gigs to go to
3. Which there has been another stage of reopening from the socially distanced gigs we have had this year
4. You don’t trust the government and won’t be going until you are certain.

5. You are a venue and you need this more than anything and have all the safeguards in place and cant wait to see everybody!

  1. I’ve still got my concerns but seeing as the government doesn’t seem to give a shit anymore I guess we’ll have to see what happens. I’d certainly get to as many gigs as you can before the Autumn/Winter Lockdown kicks in.

  2. Between 2 and 3 – desperate to get back to it, gigs and gig trips are what keeps me going when work is hard so really missed them. Having said that and despite being double vaccinated I am still nervous about catching covid particularly as it seems out of control at the moment.

  3. Dont believe any gigs will happen in Scotland this year indoors at least.vax or no vax, we are being fucked over
