Gig safety

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

For comparison Wetherspoons has received £48.3 million
Aye, but Wetherspoons' chief is a Brexit-supporting Tory donor who inspired the PM's haircut. Coincidental, I'm sure.

I wouldn't drink in Spoons if it was the last pub on Earth, although I might have a wander past tomorrow to see how the zombie apocalypse is looking by mid-afternoon. Morbid curiosity and all that ...
Names are just a souvenir ...

Haha.
I'm trying to understand why they bothered with platforms when just fence sections would have been easier & cheaper with the same result.

That they're trying to figure out a solution is a good thing. We need gigs & the bands need the income since spotify et al are right royally ripping them off.
Thing is, I can't see this being a massive difference to the drive in shows that were eventually canned. Only difference is you're stood in a little pen instead of sat in your car.
