Latest update from Barclaycard British Summertime:

A message from Paul — . I’ve often wondered what it would feel like to reach the point where I’d consider bringing my performing career to a natural end. Now I know: it feels a little unsettling, a touch exhilarating, and something of a relief. . I love making music, my voice is still strong, and my band is a tight, extraordinary group of gifted musicians. I think about music constantly. Sadly, we lost our lead guitarist and my friend of 30 years, Vincent N’guini, who died last December. His loss is not the only reason I’ve decided to stop touring, but it is a contributing factor. Mostly, though, I feel the travel and time away from my wife and family takes a toll that detracts from the joy of playing. I’d like to leave with a big Thank You to the many folks around the world who’ve come out to watch me play over the last 50 years. . After this coming tour, I anticipate doing the occasional performance in a (hopefully) acoustically pristine hall, and to donate those earnings to various philanthropic organizations, particularly those whose objective is to save the planet, ecologically. . Once again, I am very grateful for a fulfilling career and, of course, most of all to the audiences who heard something in my music that touched their hearts. . — Paul Simon

Please get at least one top level rock band for next year. None of the shite teenager stuff that was booked for this year. That's all thanks.

You got Pearl Jam back for next year lads?

Stand with the black community as it’s their own being killed on the streets! From people who are supposed to protect them!

Can none black people not suffer the first three then? Was with you all the way until it became exclusive.

Even thou sum of the lockdown may have been lifted by then I dont think the mass gathering will of been lifted see u in 2021 please get madnesa

You had a lucky escape here after most of the line ups that work experience kid landed you with this year.

Absolutely gutted, right decision, see you next year

Gutted....yet another cancellation.... this really is going to be the most rubbish summer ever... Pearl Jam next year please!!!!

Gutted, but it’s the right decision. See you next year BST Hyde Park! p.s. please get Taylor Swift and Little Mix back next year!

We all knew this was coming. The Duran Duran tickets shouldn't have been on sale even. When it was announced it was clear that it wouldn't go ahead. Sadly I had some hope, but vanished really fast. Hope that we get out tickets refunded completely.

Please let it be the same lineup again next time. I was so excited to finally get to see Taylor again in the great outdoors 😞

Was expecting this announcement... gutted I won't see Pearl Jam 😔

How you guys reading this? I feel like by them saying 6th May the "future plans".... could be postponed until same"ish" date July next year (like a lot of artists/concerts are doing) 🤔 or if they can't, then refunds??? What do you think 🤔 xx

First all the spring events got cancelled and now the summer ones! 2020 sucks big time!

I officially hate Covid-19 was so looking forward to seeing PJ & The Pixies Live again and this time together but it is for the best. I hope that you try so hard to get all the acts you had this year together for next years BST. Much love and stay safe everyone 🤘🤘 keep on rocking in the not so free world right now 🤘🤘

Sad news, but at least all those kind people from all over the world who were trying to sell spare tickets at less than face value will be able to get their money back 😉

Honestly, so sad but obviously it's not like there was really any other option! Can you please keep the same headliners next year <3

Waited nearly 50 years to see Duran Duran but safety of all comes first x

So sad, 2019 was amazing, and my childrens first "real" concert as they called it, and was so very much looking forward to this year, but we will be back next year !

Can somebody please tell me are our tickets being honoured for next year or do we have no choice but to get a refund only???

Sad news, but sensible as who knows whether things will be anywhere near back to normal by then. Hopefully the same lineups can be booked for next year!

Hope it doesn’t hurt as much as the families that have lost loved ones. I feel for all of you

Dream ticket this one - Pearl Jam, Pixies, Duran and NILE Rodgers. What a party it would have been! Maybe next year.

Gutted, but can’t be helped. Hopefully you can bring back Pearl Jam in 2021 🎸!

So gutted ive missed pearl jam twice now in last few but totally understand this decision

Absolute best decision. Everyone's safety is paramount at the moment. See you in 21 💕

Absolutely gutted to not seeing Taylor Swift Duran Duran & Nile but expected & totally understand why Please please can we try for the same acts on the last Saturday & Sunday for next year 🙏🏻🙏🏻 x

It was 3 months away..bit premature..assuming it was to cut costs of prepping it all any further..

So very sad that I wont be finally seeing Pearl Jam but everyone's health and safety most certainly comes first. Thank you BST!

BST Hyde Park Hurry up and make your statement. It’s past time we were told what’s going on. This needs to be postponed until next summer. Mass gatherings in July is a stupid idea. Don’t keep us hanging, be responsible like the Glastonbury organisers who obviously value their patrons health over their money.

I’m sure that you will do the right thing at the appropriate time. But, in case it helps, I’m prepared to stand outside in December in the dark, cold, and driving rain to watch Pearl Jam 👍

I hope we have the option of a refund if needed , I need to cancel a hotel preferably a month before the gig, I can’t go later in the year.

So many people on here still think it's a little disease that will have cleared in a few weeks! I'm not sure you're aware of the nature of how it spreads and feeling hard done by because you're not going to see your favourite act is pretty sad.

its surely impossible for it to go ahead sadly im gutted as ive waited years to see Taylor Swift and Little Mix and who knows how much longer ill have to wait now

this Corona virus will keep us busy for a few months, look @ China...they still don't have a normal live...it will be a strange year for the entire world. Health and safety before anything else. I'm sure the organization will take a wise decision...feel sorry for the organizers and for all who wanted to see their idols. #keepSafe #stayHome

Uninformed, unprofessionally bad customer service to not even receive a small update as to where you are with your decision making. I wouldn’t be surprised if customers have lost all trust in you, and that’s only going to dent your reputation unnecessarily in the future

I’d be gutted to see this cancelled but it seems like the most sensible thing to do, the virus will still likely be around so a mass gathering of this kind of number of people would just be irresponsible. It should just be cancelled and the sooner this decision is made the sooner things can be sorted out for everyone.

BST You’re taking the piss now, hurry up and make your statement. People have hotels and travel plans to cancel, refunds to receive. Face it, you can’t go ahead with the festival this year, pretty much all the other festivals have accepted this and it’s way past time you did too.

Postpone until next year. It would be really stupid and tone deaf to hold mass gatherings this summer. Even if infection has slowed down by then, events like this could create a second wave. I have tickets and was really looking forward to seeing Pearl Jam, but would prefer to wait until next year than put myself and others in danger.

It's not easy as potponing it or cancelling it for the most part and there are a lot of moving parts with things like this. if they postpone or cancel they may not be able to deliver the artists they have promised at later dates or next year due to other commitments and they will likely have booked next years acts already. If its not safe to go ahead them obviously that is a reason to cancel and they should but July is still a very long time away and if we can get this sorted within the 12 weeks they are suggesting we can then this falls very much outside of that. at least they have given us an update on what to expect currently, some events and companies arent even doing that much

These events are clearly not going to happen in July. The lack of any update is appalling and utterly unprofessional. Just please confirm they are cancelled/postponed so that everyone can cancel hotels/ transport etc.

Hopefully allow a refund option, traveling from NZ which at this time seems improbable

Please don’t cancel then little mix will have to cancel their WHOLE summer tour

Even if you postpone it, please allow for the refund option: I bought flights and hotel to see taylor in london and I'm in university, I can't just come on a later date

Just cancel now, cut your losses and get better acts to replace them 🤣

I don’t think three months is going to stop this virus and it’s highly likely it will be necessary to cancel the concerts this year. Obviously they won’t be able to make a decision nearer the time. Staying safe and alive - more important than concerts and holidays.

BST Hyde Park love box festival (also in London over the weekend of the 11th of June) has confirmed they have had to cancel this year. You need to make a statement now. People have money tied up in tickets which they could do with if it no longer can go ahead. Be decent and let your customers know SOMETHING

Come along BST, put us out of our misery and allow us the cancel hotels etc

I'd say they are desperately trying not to cancel... so be patient... X

Quicker you announce the likely cancellation, the quicker people can sort out refunded hotels, rail tickets etc.

One week later and still no update or replies to anyone! Shocking behaviour in such a stressful time for people BST Hyde Park! Not on this lack of communication. We’re all inside waiting on replies and updates, what are you guys doing?? 🙄

Surely there needs to be an announcement on this very soon?

This was 2 weeks ago!!! Surely you have an update and put ya out our misery and arrange our refunds!!!

Could we please receive an update regards to this festival?

Cannot wait to see Taylor swift on Saturday and then Duran Duran on Sunday. It'll be one of the best weekends EVER!!!! ❤️

Not booking any thing this year at least

Not for me .... just doesn’t cut the suuuuunshiiiinnnee Ginge will though as his taste in music isn’t as good as mine 🙄

Cmon ginge... you’re losing your indie tag so you know you will end up going You won’t have a choice... you can wear matching outfits as well 😂

Shame this wasn't on now....they could of cancelled it 😂😂😂😂😂

Well that's £300 of my 17 year old daughters money down the drain 🤷‍♀️😯

Tba I’ll just be happy to wake up on 12/7/20 at this rate

All these shows are doomed

Why would anyone buy tickets to anything at this moment in time? You’re all mad!

Great line I saw Duran Duran along with Goldfrap many years ago they put on a great show. Hope also it happens hope during the summer time it burns this Monster virus right if the face of this earth. 🤞It goes ahead

Looking forward to seeing these guys for the 20th time over 38 years with VIP back passes 🕺👍🍻😀

Who's gonna buy tickets to any festival with gatherings of 500 ppl or more about to be banned.....I'll skip that one thanks

Really wanted to go to this but holding off getting tickets, at least for now, given the current circumstances. Shame.

Will it go ahead though??

£110 a ticket! 👎🏻

Surely it will all be over in July ..I’m preying ,going to Post Malone 2nd July 😬

Don’t bother, it going be cancelled.

None of this will be going ahead now

Are we guaranteed refund if this is cancelled?

Glastonbury is looking to be cancelled to possibly September if at all.... bst will not go ahead this year

This will be cancelled I'm afraid.. sorry but I think everyone should prepare themselves for that happening.......

We will still be in a peak of this st that time. I wouldn't be expecting much to be happening for the rest of the year at least 😒

CANCELLED !!!

I am a Duran Duran fan but this ad makes me feel like they are living in a parallel universe!

Sarah McCarthy Carter shall we book? Sure they’ll have refundable option if gets cancelled?

Looks like Pearl Jam are bombing out as well....🙄

Last time I saw them in London was at Lovebox in Hackney, more than a decade ago

Is this right time to announce this with world situation and possible future limits on gatherings

£142 for gold circle.... And it's not even at the front... Bit steep 🙁

Probably the best day out of all of them!

Going on my own and dont even care 😃🙌❤

Great line-up❣️👌👍👏

With any luck the plug will be pulled on the whole sorry lot!

Is that poster upside down

Omg I need to go to this and see Duran Duran live 😍😍😍😍

Would love to see this line up!

Julia Williams fancy a Hyde park trip this year?? There’s this one or Taylor swift headlining on the 11th

Carlos Vieira I might be back in the uk at this point and Duran Duran are one of my all time favourites. What you sayin about a little reunion??

What a strange line-up 🤔

I thought Duran Duran was IOW exclusive? 🤔

Why are they 'notorious '?

any chance this can be postponed? pearl jam just postponed ther tour in America...

Pearl Jam won’t be playing seeing they cancelled their tour in the US. Will these shows get postponed and rescheduled or cancelled? I can see stadium and arena shows being postponed but feativals surely have to be cancelled. I can’t see BST or Glastonbury happening in November!

Can’t wait Duran Duran lets have it

Finally, a decent line up...

Watched Duran Duran at Eden project must admit they were amazing 😉

Wow would love this x

I would love to see Duran Duran

DD Only show in london 2020...... we will see about that 🤔🤔

Superb
