After the highs of discovering the Chemical Brothers would be playing a surprise Glastonbury set to the return of the ghost of these last few years: Covid might now stop them playing.
The duo had to reschedule last night’s show in Cork because of “ “multiple cases of COVID-19 within the band and crew, despite taking every precaution we possibly could.”
They explained in a statement “This frustrating decision was not taken lightly, and we apologise sincerely for the disappointment, which we very much share… Ireland has always been a very special place for us to play and we are aware how many times this particular show has had to be postponed…In almost 30 years of touring this is the first show we have ever missed.
As for Glastonbury and other gigs: “We are monitoring the situation and will make a decision as soon as possible regarding remaining shows later this week. We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible but as we have all learnt over the last two excruciating years, covid recovery times and severity of infection are unpredictable.”
