It’s finally here!! After the disappointment of the #LanaDelRey concert being cancelled, we’ve literally counted down the days to this event!! Though now it’s here, I’m nervous due to the coronavirus if I’m honest.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
As the coronavirus situation evolves, the safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff members is our number one priority.
At this time, the risk to individuals is low and all of our events are going ahead as planned. The guidance from the Government to music fans attending music events in the UK and to anyone involved in tours in the UK is to check with the official Government news sources: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
We will continue to review our policies and procedures in line with updated health advice and guidance. Which at the moment is recommending the use of tissues if you sneeze or cough and regular hand washing. To this end, we have hand washing facilities in all of our venues and additional signage to highlight these best practices and to reassure the public.
The Government has now produced its coronavirus action plan which you can read here. The 28-page document outlines what people can expect across the UK.
More advice on coronavirus and safety precautions can be found on the website of Public Health England here.
So we went
Instead of all we had planned, we are staying at home for the day and only coming out for this event. So no junkyard golf and club crawl beforehand. Gutted but I understand. After tonight the country may be on lockdown with all events cancelled etc.(nope they haven’t decided to do this yet)
So Manchester here we come.
We had pale waves on as an introduction, supporting act. Loved their sound. So I will look for them on Spotify.
Found our seats easily as they were shown to us, We had a great view as well, super impressed.
My only bugbear was everyone stood up, we had seating for disability so thankfully on the end, so could still see, but I spotted others that couldn’t.

- Eyes Closed/ Die for Me
- You Should Be Sad

The whole thing went so fast, four outfit changes, moving stages, fabulous visuals and fire. It was high energy, delicate at times, emotional in others, raging and fierce, it was a whole journey she took us on.
I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish. In fact I didn’t want it to end. We had lots of Artist interaction, and talking too. Felt like it was genuine interaction, rather than staged and forced.
And now that’s me not moving for a week, we are staying in to keep our contact with others to a minimum. I cancelled my physio appointments for a month too.
