Ok so here is the gigs that have been cancelled or postponed or something, so the government in Ireland has said the in its roadmap to reopening the country, pubs are to reopen in phase five on August 10 as the vast majority of gigs here are in pubs have crossed out all gigs in Ireland up until that date, have not done so for the gigs in Northern Ireland as unsure of that situation.
