Hardline announce all of their 2020 shows are either postponed or cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic
The tough times for bands and artists that want to perform live continues as Hardline consisting of lead vocalist Johnny Gioeli, keyboardist Alessandro Del Vecchio, guitarist Mario Percudani, bassist Anna Portalupi and drummer Marco Di Salvia have announced that all of their shows for 2020 have either been postponed or cancelled due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The following message was posted on Hardline‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Hello everyone. I hope you are all safe and well. I hate to bring bad news, but I must announce that due to the Covid19 pandemic situation, all Hardline shows in 2020 have officially canceled or postponed. Most shows are only postponed and are rescheduled or in the process of being rescheduled. We will present the 2021 makeup show dates, as well as new venue dates as soon as possible.
****If you are requesting a refund, please contact the venue directly. All purchased tickets are good for the make-up shows and we encourage you to keep them as so many bands, venues, and promoters have been financially devastated as a result of cancelations due to the pandemic. Thank you sincerely.
Johnny, Ale, Anna, Marco, and Mario“
Hardline released their live album Life Live via Frontiers Music Srl on February 14, 2020 about one month prior to the world shutting down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Life Live: “Overall, if you are looking for a great live album, you need to have this one. It is better produced than the Quiet Riot live album from last year and the DVD is a more complete, well rounded show than the L.A. Guns live CD/DVD. It has it all. Great vocals, tight musicianship. I mean, these guys have such pop melodies, Jon Bon Jovi should be jealous. But, they didn’t go south on Hard Rock Avenue like the New Jersey boys did.”
