JON GOMM – ANNOUNCES RUN OF SOCIAL DISTANCE SHOWS FOR 2020

UK/EIRE TOUR DATES RESCHEDULED TO 2021

NEW ALBUM ‘THE FAINTEST IDEA’ OUT NOW ON KSCOPE

Jon Gomm, the UK based acoustic guitar virtuoso, who recently released his new album The Faintest Idea on Kscope has announced a run of social distance shows for later this year. Jon states,

‘It’s not unexpected, but I’m still crushed to announce that I’m having to reschedule The Faintest Idea UK/Eire Tour – New dates are all set up for Autumn/Winter 2021, and tickets on sale (if you already have a ticket for one of the gigs, it’s transferable).

However, I am desperate to play these new songs. They don’t feel completely born until I’ve physically felt a human reaction to them. So I’m doing a short run of very limited Social Distance Gigs in the coming weeks (there were more booked, but some have fallen to new lockdowns before we could even announce them), and an Online Album Launch Gig on November 15th.

I can’t help but feel angry with those governments who have let their ideological obsession with the free-market overrule public health, and so ruined both. It’s a macro version of the exact same heedless dollar-chasing which unlocked a vault of rainforest pathogens and spilled it into a city street.’
