Zombies postponement statement.
The live music sector, like many, are facing exceptional financial difficulties through the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, with all public events on lockdown and ticket sales understandably at a standstill. Music venues and promoters are struggling to maintain operations and keep their staff on payroll. Furthermore, the industry’s workforce is heavily populated by freelancers (from the artists to their crew, venue workers and those involved in the promotion of any tours & events), and despite government support it is extremely difficult for the livelihoods of freelancers during this difficult time. The Zombies, like many others, are doing all they can to support their self-employed/freelance workers who were involved in the creation and planning of the tour and reliant on the income it provides. These individuals will be unable to generate work or income during this period of lockdown. If you hold a ticket for one of our postponed shows, or any concert or event rescheduled due to the lockdown, and can afford to do so – please consider retaining your ticket and not claiming a refund. This will help venues maintain operations and provide some assistance to those associated with the creation, promotion, production and management of live concert tours.
