Liverpool gig guide: rescheduled and new shows including Fenne Lily, SPQR, Stormzy, The Homesick and more


Fenne Lily

It’s that time of the week again with more rescheduled gigs as well as some new announcements coming to light, Getintothis’ Simon Kirk has the details.

Bored yet?

Well, they say boredom is a sign of an inactive mind.

So we’ll rephrase, are you going stir crazy yet?

There’s a difference.

To be honest, we are a bit, for we seem to be at this gig guide juncture every fucking week at the minute, and who knows if it will all materialise?

Oh well, they say optimism is the best policy so only time will tell. Fingers crossed.

Like the previous weeks, there’s no messin’ here.

Below is a list of rescheduled gigs that were due to take place across the city before things went to the brown stuff and to keep things ticking over, we’ve also added some newly announced shows too.

We’re not going to go too much into things here, we’ll leave the superlatives for the actual gig guide in the lead up to when these gigs actually take place.

Keep checking back as this page will be updated weekly as news of rescheduled gigs comes to light.
