Some people here has compared covid-19 with a flu, I like the way James Corden explains the difference. In a funny way but also true:

This is weird now. They should have at least said an announcement will be soon.

There's the holding line on the website saying they'll let us know when they have information.

I think they're evidently having issues rescheduling. Venues are already booking up for 2021 with planned events and others rescheduled from this year, and I think they're waiting until they've rescheduled all the dates firmly before making an announcement. It must be a logistical nightmare, it's a very difficult environment in which to be doing this, with everyone working from home and companies potentially going under.

I think they're avoiding putting out a potentially bad PR message saying "we're trying and struggling to reschedule".

I'm expecting an announcement any day.
Heaven is possible,
AFTER ALL.

I agree with Harry...they have to wait until ALL dates are rescheduled to make an official announcement.

"The show of the Pet Shop Boys - scheduled for 12.05.2020 in Vienna - unfortunately cannot be carried out on schedule due to the current developments surrounding the spread of the corona virus and the measures set by the Austrian Federal Government. However, we are already working hard on a suitable catch up date and will inform you as soon as we know more about it. Please be patient a little longer. Tickets will remain valid."

Looks like we should be hearing about rescheduled dates soon...

Denmark just banned all gatherings of more than 10 people until end of AUGUST !

Undoubtedly this will happen across Europe

So bye bye O2 arena :(

Reason being we need to have proper treatment (medicine) in place before we can dream about open up again. Likely this will continue until a vaccine is approved (year from now).

Glasgow now looks to be 28 May 2021 if the facebook event page is to be trusted.
It's just my little tribute...

Given the SECC is now being converted to a hospital, it's a given these dates be moved forward.

Moving forward by a year makes sense - we're unlikely to be back to 'normal' prior to then.

Stop posting bullshit and some facts made up from different parts of a sentence. This is what a Reuters article says about Denmark:
All remaining restrictions including a ban on gatherings of more than 10 people would stay in place until at least May 10, while a ban on larger gatherings would remain in place until August.

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant
