By Andy B | June 12, 2024

The Wildheart made their epic return last week at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire, showcasing the brand new line-up of Jon Poole, Ben Marsden, Pontus Snibb, and of course Ginger Wildheart himself.

Playing to a full and loud crowd, along with pyro, confetti cannons, and an amazing lighting rig, the reception to the set which included old, new and very new songs, was extremely positive!

But don’t take our word for it…take a look at the following glowing reviews that have started to come in, with some fantastic pictures from the night as well:

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”
