Edinburgh gig Weltschmerz tour, March 28, 2020

Just realised that I would have been packing my bag for Edinburgh today. Completely unreal how things have panned out. :frowning_face:

Maybe a mad idea, but how about us all that would have been going to Edinburgh or any other forum members, sharing a pre gig drink tomorrow via a group Whats App video call??
Im not the most advanced at such technology, but maybe someone could set this up, if we could agree on a time . ?

That’s a great idea Andy :laughing:

We did that last night for a birthday video chat session with my bros and sis and had a brilliant time, all had drinks in front of our screens. We used Facebook Messenger video call but we can do it on whatsapp I’m sure? I can surely make a few trials and by saturday I can create a whatsapp group with those who want to participate.
I’m up for it if people wanna boogie woogie :grin:

Maybe we could use https://zoom.us/, we could be many on video at the same time on this, as alternative to whatsapp.
Recommanded today by an IT manager of my internet provider, it’s a long story.

I think we need to keep it simple Marie… most people already have whatsapp and it works great as it is, I tried a grouped video call tonight and it works wonders. If we start having to install stuff and all it will put people off. My take on it anyway.

It all still seems like a bad dream to me to be honest.

Watched this earlier. Makes sense otherwise momentum of its release would have lost impact before tour dates.

Steve, are you joining us for a wee drink tomorrow?

Right, I’m afraid we have to change our plans as whatsapp video call only allows no more than 4 people at the same time (thanks Anthony for the heads up) :roll_eyes:
So the other way around it would be a group video call on FB Messenger. I know most of us are on FB (or their partners) sadly I know that some of you aren’t :disappointed:.

I can create a discussion with those who are up for it, would mean people who are yet not friends with me would have to accept me for tomorrow night I guess then I’d be able to create a group. (We can “defriend” ourselves afterwards thats no problem :wink:)

What do u people think? Open to suggestions!!
