Due to the current circumstances for live music, the annual homecoming of the cult Manchester band will instead take place on a new date of: Saturday 17th December 2022.
Tickets purchased for the original date of 19th December 2020 and the previously postponed date of Saturday 1st May 2021, will also remain valid for the new fixture. For those unable to attend the new date, refunds will be available from point of purchase.
In a statement about the move, Chameleons frontman Mark Burgess says:
“It’s with a deep feeling of sadness that we have to postpone this year’s show at the Academy [Saturday May 1st 2021], which was due to feature Chameleons alongside Spear of Destiny and B-Movie, to the new date of 17th December 2022. Obviously, this is due to the uncertainty surrounding the current situation concerning the spread of Covid-19, which has caused the cancellation of so much of the live performance calendar…. with social distancing measures still very much in place for the foreseeable, we had to make a decision and it was decided that in the interests of safety and security, we really had no choice but to postpone the show again. Obviously, we apologise to our audience, many of whom I know had already booked flights and accommodation. Please know that if there had been any other option we would have taken it. We wish to extend to everyone our best wishes and hope that you’ll stay safe and well; and with luck we can eventually put this horrible experience behind us and all get together soon.”
As previously announced, Theatre of Hate will be replaced on the bill by Kirk Brandon’s alter-ego Spear of Destiny.
While we all seem very far from Home right now, fans should keep their eyes peeled for a very special additional announcement from Chameleons in the coming weeks. . .
