A Letter from Jeff Davis
As some of you may know and most of you suspect Playing with Fire won’t happen in 2020. PwF has fallen victim to COVID-19’s canceled tours, closed borders, social distancing, and the inability of our international artists to meet their visa requirements. And that’s the BAD news.
Here is the good news: Although we have postponed until 2021 ALL of our artists have rebooked with us for 2021. We have, however, changed our dates and performance line-ups to accommodate artists with previous 2021 commitments.
And the really good news: To play “Catch-Up” we have added a 4th show to 2021. And, if things work out we would like to add two more concerts!
Dates and Artists confirmed for 2021 are:
July 16 – Mike Zito Band (USA); MonkeyJunk (CA)
July 17 – Ghost Town Blues Band (USA); Delgres (FR);
Rex Granite Band with Sarah Benck (USA)
August 13 – MY BABY (NE); Lachy Doley (AU)
August 14 – Catfish (UK); Nikki Hill Band (USA); Freeway (AU)
The PwF team is super excited about this line-up! We will tell you more about each artist in the coming months. PwF is planning a great 2021 season at the Capitol District in Omaha, Nebraska.
Until then, Stay Safe,
Playing with Fire
