The wait to re-open goes on for a community owned mid Wales venue, which has had to postpone what would have been its first live show for 19 months.

Organisers at the Pavillion in Llandrindod Wells expressed their disappointment in a statement which confirmed that the "Hats off the Led Zeppelin" show, due to take place on Friday, September 3, is cancelled.

The band had pulled the plug on the event earlier this week due to pandemic related logistical reasons.

The re-opening of the theatre for live music will now be put back to September 24 when the Hawkmen are set to appear.

A statement from Pavillion Mid Wales said: "We were looking forward to getting back to business this Friday having been out of action for 19 months, but the COVID gods have struck again!

"We deeply regret having to inform you that the upcoming Hats Off To Led Zeppelin show, scheduled for this coming Friday (3rd September) has been cancelled by the band."

A statement from the band said the cancellation was one of a number of cancellations which had to take place due to the logistics of organising a tour during the pandemic.

A spokesperson for Hats Off to Led Zeppelin said they hoped they would be able to return when things were back to "normal".

"After a very challenging year and a half for the entertainment industry Hats off to Led Zeppelin were looking forward to bringing Rock’n’Roll back to UK audiences as soon as was legally possible," they said.

"There are 1001 hurdles to jump through to make a simple tour work even during normal times but in the current climate we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone certain shows until things are a little more back to ‘normal’. One of these such shows is at the Pavilion Mid Wales on the 3rd September.

"We apologise for any inconvenience caused and hope to resume regular service as soon as is humanly possible".

Pavillion Mid Wales say they started the process of refunding tickets earlier this week.
