31 March 2020 - Coronavirus Update - email sent to site members

Dear Concert Promoter

In view of the challenging times we find ourselves in, we have decided to refund full credits for concerts which have needed to be postponed or cancelled because of the coronavirus.

Please could you log into the site and mark your concerts as postponed or cancelled by editing the listing title.
You can see examples here of how to do this here:

Over the coming days we will work through and refund your credits into your accounts.
Once live concerts resume again you will be able to use the credits for a future concert.

If your cancelled concert was in March, you will no longer be able to edit the title.
Instead, please reply to this email giving the concert title and date and we'll do our best to sort things out for you.

with best wishes
