The tour will now absolutely be postponed. It’s just a matter of them organising and re-scheduling dates TBA.

Literally every other artist has announced postponed tour dates!

That’s Literally not true
In Ireland it is. Every major venue in the country, even the 3Arena, has shut down and postponed everything.

Pubs are still open though, so yay for all the idiots that are going to be crammed into them over the next few days becoming a petri dish for the virus to spread! :wall:

Not “announced”; “Government sources say” - i.e. this is speculation. I am sure it is correct and that it will happen but the distinction is important.
Woof.

I know this is no consolation to anyone who gets sick, but they are saying the infection rate is a way out of this as this is how immunity happens with these viruses. they run thru the population, do its thing and people get immunity and thus a vaccine can be created.

I have been taking the flu vaccine for upwards of 10 years and I have never gotten it. yes I know there are exceptions to the rule,but for me, they have worked.

I wish everyone the best, it's going to be a tough few weeks (months) coming up. Take care of yourselves, and self-isolate if you possible can, this is very serious.

"Amid the uncertainty caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, with governments taking measures to try to mitigate the effects of the virus, we all wonder what the immediate future holds for us. Pet Shop Boys and their team are working on the music and production of the upcoming Dreamworld tour while aware of the possibility that some of the dates may have to be postponed until a later date because of government directives. As soon as we know if any changes have to be made to the Dreamworld tour schedule, we’ll let you know. "

Same here all. Some here still "don't get it" though. We were on the bus outward last week and a woman was sneezing everywhere. Didn't cover it or even use a tissue. :shock: And the bus back home a man was coughing everywhere. A bit of sense and hygiene would not go a miss. - Sorry, to moan - not your fault! :gag: People should think of others much more.

PSB are ironic even when they don't want to be ironic. Dreamworld is the most ironic title of the history of PSB.

Hello guys, a greeting from Spain.

I have tickets for May 1 at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, but I'm assimilating that you won't be able to leave.

The only thing I hope is that instead of cancelling it, they will postpone it for another date as I want to go to Berlin.
