So the Covid crisis has laid waste the 2020 Procol Harum tour, including the fantastic convention weekend that fans all over the world were looking forward to so much. It turns out that the team made the right decision, postponing the events planned for 4 and 5 July ... at the time of writing, the selective easing of lockdown in the UK has not included any concession for music events or large social gatherings, and hotels remain closed.
But there is one treat in the pipeline over which the virus can exert no control. Following a quick enquiry from website to management, 'Beyond the Pale' is able to offer a limited-period offer of the hitherto-unseen 2020 tour tee-shirts that were designed for release in January and – for obvious reasons – have yet to be offered for sale anywhere.
Procol Harum have kindly agreed to release all the existing stock – a small edition prepared for the January gig – at a special price, exclusively through this website, between Monday 29 June and Monday 13 July – in other words, during the period fans would have been travelling to London, and home again, for 'Beyond the Deep'.
The shirts are available in four sizes – Medium, Large, XL, and XXL subject to availability. There were two colours, but the white shirts sold out very rapidly. The shirts are printed both sides, one with the band name and a very groovy motif, and the other side, again with the band name, listing concerts which – and this is the Unique Selling Point! – never happened.
Black shirts, front and back : 13 GBP (+ packing and postage from the UK)
