We are looking to reschedule for autumn. Below is a message from Liam on behalf of the band.
Dear Flower friends:
We are in lockdown here in Ireland now. Italy’s situation became an example to the rest of us and we have to respond to stem the flow of this virus . We wanted to and were so much looking foreword to coming over to London to do our thing onstage with all of you . Were it not that we are part of a chain of humanity that includes our vulnerable relatives I believe we all would have thrown caution to the wind and come regardless .
We are healthy . I did not decide until today myself . But the decision had to be made . We have Neighbours and relatives near and around us . Traveling through an international hub running the risk of picking the bug up and carrying it back is a risk that affects not only us but our community as well . Our people here . This is a global happening beyond our comprehension. There are silver linings . The chances for our children to take control of their own education for a while . We have a chance to re evaluate what life and community means to us . Great works could come . A singular wave covering all humanity could have inspiring consequences. Nothing is singularly good or bad . Spring is coming ( it’s here according to St Brigid ) we welcome the new life and a great tide of good health . ‘Love the only engine of survival ‘ LCohen’s soon as we have alternative plans we will share them .
Love and thanks for so many good times past and to come In music
Thinking of you all in these scary times Liam, keep safe all of at home in my beautiful country
Love Elaine 🇮🇪☘️💚💚💚💚
Thanks Liam…lovely to receive a positive message in these scary times.
Us Flower friends will have a gig to look forward to in the Autumn 😊
Take care everyone
No message from the venue or ticket sellers about this I’ve just found out by looking here. Take care lads see you in the autumn.
Nice message, Liam. Another Leonard Cohen quote feels apt right now and ties in with your message:
“Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack, in everything
That’s how the light gets in”
Take care all. Beir bua.
