Afterglow at Hangar Farm 3rd March - Postponed
#1
Exclamation 
Well, folks - after much careful consideration and with great regret, we’re afraid that we have to be the bearer of bad news, and postpone tomorrow’s gig at Hangar Farm, Totton.

We all got up this morning with the highest of hopes, but a number of singular events and a further fall of snow in the local area has now added up to a scenario whereby, as our primary concern is for the safety of our audience, the venue staff, and our tech crew, as well as ourselves, we have no choice but to postpone.

Firstly, travel in the local area is difficult, and the last thing we want is a stressful and unsafe journey for you all. If just one of our audience was hurt as a result of travelling to see us, we would never forgive ourselves.

Not only that, Pete, our Irish Phil, is currently at home in Limerick, and Dublin Airport is still closed. Whilst it may open tomorrow, and he may make it to Gatwick, the trains to Totton are not looking very reliable, and getting a car up there and back is just as risky. 

We have contacted Hangar Farm, and apparently they have independently made the decision to postpone tonight’s event as well as our event tomorrow, which makes us feel that tough as it is, we have made the right call. 

Finally, just as if that wasn’t enough, poor Andy has a family emergency which means that he now has to brave it up to Somerset, and may not be able to return to make the gig tomorrow. 

Any of these issues in themselves are arguably enough to point to postponement, but combined, they represent a bigger force than Storm Emma itself.

We are really sorry, and whilst we still need to sort out the details with the venue, it is our intention to reschedule this event as soon as we can. The good news is that tickets will be transferable to the new date, so nobody should miss out in the end.

None of us could have foreseen such a crazy few days, and whilst we really appreciate the commitment of each and every one of you who have already chosen to come, we would much prefer to put on a show for you when all of us - audience and band - are much more relaxed. 

Meanwhile, please, stay safe and warm, take no chances - and we are all going to use the time before we see you to learn “Snowbound” ..... 

All the very best, 

Team Afterglow

It's always hard to make the call to cancel or postpone a show. For what it's worth, I think you made the right call. Better to be safe than sorry, in every respect.

Looking forward to seeing you guys, if you're ever up on the NW.  :-)
