Monday 10 Jan - Happy Birthday to ROD STEWART who is 77 today. Sunday 09 Jan - Happy Birthday to JIMMY PAGE is 78 today. Sunday 09 Jan - Happy Birthday to DAVID JOHANSEN who is 72 today. Saturday 08 Jan - DAVID BOWIE would have been 75 today ----------------------------------- Saturday 08 January 2022. A big spike in the omicron covid variant has resulted in several UK tours for Jan and Feb being postponed. This will certainly mean that most overseas bands will postpone their UK shows in that period. Includes CHEAP TRICK which has been moved from Feb 2022 to October 2022. Could easily mean the postponement for some English bands too , so worth keeping an eye out on tour updates for THE STRANGLERS & ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN Feb 2022 UK tours. Will SAXON and GIRLSCHOOL at Hammersmith Apollo on 29 Jan, get postponed yet again? This week the UK passed the terrible milestone of over 150,000 covid related deaths. Gigs were pretty much back to normal in Nov and Dec 2021, but now it's gone very messy again.
