Live show cancellations due to current Coronavirus COVID-19 situation

By Kris | March 12, 2020

The Wildhearts regret to announce the cancellation of the Radio Rock Cruise in Finland and also tomorrow’s (13th March) performance at MK11 in Milton Keynes, due to the ongoing situation regarding the Coronavirus. The cruise was cancelled on advice of the Finnish Government, and the band and management are working hard to rearrange the Milton Keynes show. We plan to have tickets on sale for the new date but please contact the promoter should you wish for a refund, more info to follow when we have it.

Some words from CJ:

“Hi due to the unfolding coronavirus situation we have been forced to cancel our upcoming shows in Milton Keynes and Finland.

My parents are very sick at the moment and people close to me have been asked to self-quarantine, I’m currently waiting to hear if their test results are positive.

With the current international emergency it would be wrong for us to travel.

I’ve just moved my mum from hospital to a nursing home today and my Dad is in one already as he has dementia, I really have to think about my family and my fellow band mates and their families too at this time.

We all feel that cancelling the shows is the safest and only option for us and we are all very sorry about any inconvenience caused.

All the best

Stay safe Stay healthy”

Help Our Brother, Scott Sorry

By Kris | December 23, 2017

On December 22nd, our brother and bassist Scott Sorry was diagnosed with a cystic brain tumour.

He will be undergoing surgery on December 26th, with the hope the surgeons will be able to remove it successfully, but as Scott lives in the US, the costs of his medical treatment are very large.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help raise some funds to help Scott and his family out – there’s no good time for news like this, but Christmas time seems to add an extra cruel twist to the news.

If you are able, please spare whatever cash you can – the cost of a pint with your mates, for example, would all go to help out Scott with his recovery. You can donate at www.gofundme.com/scottsorry

Thank you for your support!

Manchester Show Rescheduled + Fishing For Luckies in Nottingham

By Kris | December 27, 2016

The Wildhearts were sorry to have to cancel the final show of the tour in Manchester, as Ginger was suffering from a serious stomach bug. He soldiered on through the previous show in London, but had to throw in the towel after 20 minutes of the Manchester Hey! Hello! set. See the video below for Ginger’s on-stage apology at the time.

The Manchester show was immediately rescheduled for 26th January. Original tickets are still valid, additional tickets are on-sale at: https://thewildhearts.probitymerch.com/listings/. Refunds are available until 10th January from point of purchase for anyone who cannot make it to the rescheduled show.

For people travelling significant distance to the rescheduled show, the kind folks in Ginger’s Associated Secret Society are collecting donations to help people with travel costs, and to link people up with floors to crash on etc. See Moshville for full details.

An additional ‘Fishing For Luckies’ show has been announced for Friday 27th January at Nottingham Rock City, prior to a Japanese ‘Fishing For Luckies’ show on 31st January at Tsutaya O-East in Tokyo.

The Manchester show will see Hey! Hello! in place of Dirt Box Disco and Ginger’s Annual Birthday Bash in London features a formidable seven bands.

On top of this Danny will be joining The Wildhearts each night for a few songs on the encore.

Full dates are:

Thur 15th – Newcastle Riverside – w/ Dirt Box Disco & The Main Grains

These shows have led Ginger to exclaim…

“It’s going to be another very messy Xmas, with me and the lads playing non-stop party songs from throughout our career. And I’m especially looking forward to sharing a stage with Danny again. These shows will be a celebration of life, and it brings together two people who should be dead by now. The Birthday Bash is particularly insane this year, featuring a seven band bill.

All in all, it’s gonna be a cool yule.
Gx”
