    I defy anyone to come out of an Erasure gig without a smile in their face. Brilliant fun!
    I went to one at the Playhouse due to the fact that a girl I fancied at school was going.

    Thought I'd hate it but was very enjoyable. And yes I did get a follow up date or two. Turns out she was a pain in the arse though.

    Celtic Connections has been superb this year. A wonderful example of how to run a festival online. I hope others will follow their lead.

    I've still got the closing event to watch, but I have watched a few things I would have missed that I've enjoyed.

    When do you think indoor gigs will restart?

    The final night was good, especially the last song by Rachel Sermanni, the words and images, so emotional.

    Roaming roots was excellent.

    Snap. That's the beauty of it.

    One of the main problems with CC is that it's in January; weather's horrible, and money is tight. This year, like you say, you could discover new acts that you wouldn't otherwise have considered.

    So many highlights for me:-

    Ross Ainslie
    Shooglenifty
    The Spanish guy with the women on those strange scrapey things
    The Quebecois night.
    The piping night.
    James Grant
    Jerry Douglas with the Transatlantic Sessions band, thousands of miles apart
    The Roaming Roots Review (Field Music doing Under Pressure The guy from Biffy Clyro )
    The closing night.

    I've forgotten some....

    Pessimistically, I'd be amazed if it's this year. Which is a shame, as I've got tickets for a few rescheduled gigs and there's not a hope they'll be going ahead at this point (April).

    I can't even see outdoor gigs occurring before Autumn.
    Madness, as you know, is a lot like gravity. All it takes is a little push.

    I canít remember who it was but I read about a gig where the crowd were all in specially made zorb balls that could fit a couple of people and had speakers built in.

    I feel the need to experience that at a Slipknot concert or equivalent

    It was the Flaming Lips, in their wacky funster way. They've been doing things with zorb balls at gigs for a while anyway, so I suppose it was a natural extension.

    Normal, packed indoor live gigs are definitely going to be the last thing to come back. A part of me thinks it'll be a couple of years still until we get to that stage. Hopefully sooner than that, but I can't see any of the gigs I've got tickets for this year (Idles and Fontaines DC in March, Sleaford Mods in November and Black Country, New Road in December) going ahead. Bought more in hope than expectation.

    Any idea what they were charging?

    I would have thought, to make it work financially, they would need to charge double (?) the normal price.

    I'm not a fan of the Lips at all, but I would go and see them (balls or not) just to get to a gig. Even a half-decent busker would get my attention....

    No idea, just remembered hearing about it on the radio. Given the massive restrictions in the number of folk who could attend I couldn't imagine that it would become anything more than a novelty thing. I would guess it would make a loss.

    Here's a wee bit about it: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-55794674
