Waterford’s festival favourites ‘gutted’ as they pull the plug on 2020 gigs

King Kong Company, Waterford’s favourite live act renowned all across Europe for their hi-tempo, hi-energy live performances, have made the difficulit decision to cancel all their planned shows for the remainder of 2020.

The Waterford based septet have already seen their much anticipated summer festival season fall by the wayside due to Covid-19, but now the band have made decision to write off 2020 as a live-gig whole.

The band, who have played memorable headline gigs at both The Electric Picnic and All Together Now over the past couple of years, were due back on stage in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre this October, a gig that had sold out long ago.

Announcing their decision on their social media pages, King Kong Company said “nobody is more gutted about this than we are”.

The band added: “We’ve had long and difficult chats about our gig in The Olympia in October and other gigs scheduled for 2020.

“Given the uncertainty around social gathering restrictions, and the dawning realisation that we won’t be able to provide the same show and atmosphere that you guys deserve and expect, we’ve decided to cancel all our bookings for 2020.
“Sorry for not making a call on this sooner, but we were living in hope. Nobody is more gutted about this than we are, we’re missing ye and the festival fields something awful.”
But despite thinking in their latest release, Whores of the Lizard People  that “it won’t be long now till we’ll all be eating crickets,” the King Kong lads are a bit more optimistic for next year.
“We’re working on big plans for 2021, and hopefully we’ll all get to party together again very soon.

“Thanks for bearing with us,” the band told their fans.
