Any gigs cancelled due to the virus?

Some festivals here in Australia are going ahead, others are cancelled. Varies from state to state.
My daughter has just lost a lot of sound and production work due to events being cut, but my lowly bar gigs haven’t been affected yet.

Just wondering if anyone else has lost any gigs due to COVID 19?

Yea, it depends. Festival-attendance style things are cancelled here in the bay area. Can't have more than 1k people in one place.

The bar/lounge/small venue stuff is mostly unaffected, other than lower audience numbers. Curious about the shows the next few weeks too.

Not yet-- a friend is touring eastern/central Europe and had a Czech Republic gig cancelled-- God knows how he'll get home, with this ridiculous travel ban. I was scrambling after some idiot wrongly said we were banning cargo shipments to Europe, right when I have to ship a set of cymbals to Ukraine...

Nothing here so far in Baltimore has been cancelled...knock on wood. Although, I did have a good paying gig get cancelled because of a Ravens football playoff game back in January. ..I wasn't a happy camper. The big annual St Patricks's Day party for Saturday with multiple bands is still on. Nothing seems to stand in the way of a huge beer garden in this town. Ever.

It's 1:40 EDT and Mike Dewine, Ohio's Governor, is set for a press conference at 2pm re: events & crowds. There are several festivals and events my band is booked for which I'm 99% certain will be canceled. I'm hoping the organizers will be able to reschedule them for the fall, but the chatter doesn't sound good.

As of today, we lost or will be loosing 20-25. Most clubs and casinos said that they will try to rebook us later this year. Weddings are holding that are booked more than two months out are fine at this time.

Spouse is a librarian, and all group events just got canceled today.
Kids' school just reported 1st COVID case, all events canceled. Will likely pull my kids after a conference with the spouse.
All of the public events that I was booked at for next 2 months have been canceled.

Our lead singer won't attend our gig this coming Tuesday. He is afraid to attend "gatherings". We will have our guitar player sing and we will split the lead singer's take among the other band members. $$$$$
