Now all March and April dates in our live guide On Stage are marked “postponed” or “cancelled”. The good news is that it appears that most events will be held at a later date. Some have new dates already but in many cases the organisers say they will come back with more information. It will probably be a busy fall and winter, if the venues survives this that is.
