I’m happy that the National postponed to a set date, but while December seems a long way off, the talk now is that travel restrictions could be in place for six months or more. Still probably up in the air.

Safe to say stand-up comedian Daniel Sloss won’t be coming over in May either.

In regards to Iron Maiden, they really should be offering the refunds now and not making people wait for new release dates.

Postponing makes a lot more sense. Saves the time and hassle for both punter and promoter to refund all tickets all at once. Putting it to a later date means a minority will ask for their money back.

Mate missed out on Billy Bragg tickets and will get some now. Small blessings etc.

Not confident that any shows, rescheduled or otherwise will go ahead in 2020, especially where they involve international artists.I suspect the borders will remain closed until such a time that a vaccine is ready. Even if they do open, I think the 2 week isolation isn't going anywhere, so that's a burden I don't think many bands are willing/able to deal with.

Sad to say, but I reckon it'll be an international gig free rest of 2020

I wonder if the lack of gigs for this year means there will be double the bands touring next year and will a city like Melbourne have enough venues to cover all of them?

Will Hella Mega Tour in November be postponed? I'm thinking so because international borders might still be shut then and it's at Marvel which holds 50,000 and a mass gathering that large might not be allowed just yet.

The National rescheduled to December. I doubt international travel will be back by then, nor will gatherings of several thousand be allowed. They will either have to reschedule again or cancel :(

Sadly that seems likely

Iron Maiden has been cancelled, the money should automatically go back on the card you used within the next 20 days.

Saw an email that a Perth show for The Crystal Method had been rescheduled to December. Just saw and tickets are on sale. Surely it’s speculation at best that big enough gatherings will be allowed by then and whether international travel will be back at all. Seems dodgy to be selling tickets under the circumstances.

There's heaps of bands doing the same thing though. They must have had a guarantee from the government

I very much doubt that. I've expecting that an touring act from overseas that has rescheduled for later this year will almost certainly rescheduling again. It's all about keeping the money in the pockets of promoters and ticket vendors.
Reschedules and cancellations do anything but keep money in the hands of promoters and ticket vendors.

Cancellations sure, but I was referring to rescheduling only. In rescheduling where refunds aren't offered, the money certainly isn't going to either the band or the punters.
Why wouldn't it go to the band if they've already been paid? Same regarding venue bookings. Also promoters would have lost a fair bit on marketing, etc.

Don't think it would be all kept in the promoters pocket.
