Andrew Lloyd Webber is taking legal action against the U.K. government in a bid to force them to reveal the results of their live event pilot scheme.
During the pandemic, the Events and Research Programme (ERP) had been allowing audiences to attend events such as the FA Cup Final and the BRIT Awards to gauge whether or not such occasions contributed to the spread of the coronavirus.
It had been expected that the ERP would reveal their findings last week however, the publication of the results was delayed without explanation.
Following the delay, Lloyd Webber and others made a statement, saying: “The short-term hit is stark. Research indicates that the potential four-week delay to reopening will lead to about 5,000 live music gigs being cancelled, as well as numerous theatre productions across the country, costing hundreds of millions of pounds in lost income.”
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport said: “We understand a delay to full reopening is challenging for live events, but we are helping our creative industries and sporting bodies through it.”
