With a heavy heart, due to the escalating situation of the COVID-19 Delta virus variant in Victoria, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2021 Shows, including all October, November and December shows.
The Blues Train has always prided itself on putting the health & safety of its guests, staff, contractors, railway volunteers, and musicians first and foremost. In addition, a lack of Government ongoing support for event-based businesses means that insurance is unavailable to cover the costs of last-minute cancellations. With this in mind, we’ve decided that it’s impossible for us to run any of our 2021 shows.
Words cannot describe the devastation that this decision has caused us.
While we are staying confident that The Blues Train will return to the tracks in 2022, we are in desperate need of your help to shake, rattle and roll once again.
Any donation to our GoFundMe Rescue Campaign would be greatly appreciated – https://www.gofundme.com/f/thebluestrain2020
