      Now comes the half-a-year wait!

          Even though more than 40,000 tickets were put on sale, they are nearly sold out. All of the VIP packages are sold out already. This concert will be on a Saturday (and close to Firenze, where another big festival will happen at the same time), so that must have helped sales.

          Hotels and B&Bs are very expensive in Lucca. There will be no more trains by the time Paul's concert is over, so I guess  most Italian fans will drive to the city and return home immediately afterwards?

Well, I believe he wants to do the Lucca Summer Festival in 2020 and next year another version of the festival.

              He must be insane really. Festival in Italy? In july? Simply impossible any kind of event in Italy this year. Postpone it to 2021 - that's the answer!

                Paul wrote to Mayor Alessandro Tambellini and he wanted to inform himself about the conditions of the first citizen infected with the coronavirus. Paul is a Sir! https://www.luccaindiretta.it/dalla-citta/2020/04/04/paul-mccartney-scrive-al-sindaco-tambellini/173731/?fbclid=IwAR0v7COjuVqDDp1R0fdIVjUhV7FkGoH5mEUjElZZfZmBQjXCJKLkX19MeCY

                  one of italian organisers, Mimmo D'Alessandro said the he will decide between April 20 and 25 about Lucca. Now has a possibility to postponed to spring or summer 2021 and nothing is known about the possible refund of tickets already purchased.  The most likely hypothesis is that of issuing a voucher that can be spent for a future concert.

                    Good news for those who had bought tickets for Lucca. The amendment at the Decreto Rilancio, which provides for the refund, has been approved by the Senato this morning, Now the DL will return to the Camera for the settlement in law! So, after the publication of the law in the Gazzetta Ufficiale, we will know which way to request a monetary refund.
