London's music venues stay quiet as uncertainty reigns over return of indoor gigs.
13th August 2020 (London Evening Standard). London’s music scene looks set to stay quiet this weekend, as uncertainty reigns over whether indoor gigs will be allowed to take place from August 15. Restrictions on indoor concerts were set to be lifted on August 1, as long as audiences adhered to social distancing and venues maintained Covid-secure protocols. However, on July 31, the plan was postponed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson, citing an increase in Covid-19 infections in England as a reason for the precaution.
