The new concert dates are:

  • Friday May 16, at the Blake Hall in Bridgwater

Marc Almond has just tweeted that they have now cancelled these gigs because the floods have gone down!! Who the hell had made that decision? The sun comes up so someone decides all is well? Shows complete lack of reality. Why just announce headliners then cancel? Thats £80 I now have to fight to get back.
