Van der Graaf Generator appeared as a two-piece for this gig. Drummer Guy Evans was left behind at Heathrow because, under EU rules, his passport had effectively expired.

This concert was postponed twice. The original dates were 27th May 2020 and 7th November 2020.

"VDGG postponement of concerts to 2021.
A personal statement.
Itís a matter of great regret to us that once again weíve had to reschedule our shows in Helsinki, this time to late in 2021. Itís clear, though, that the problems relating to public performance (and, indeed, travel) in the time of C-19 are not going to have been resolved in the next ten weeks. Even if, miraculously, a vaccine were to pass safety tests by then it woludnít be ready for mass distribution.
Music is wonderful stuff and live music can be, we hope, exciting even to the point of being dangerous. But in these most serious of times we cannot justify putting ourselves, our crew, our audience and all those who work in venues into real and mortal danger for the sake of musical performance.
So we must wait, with eager anticipation, for next year. We look forward to seeing you then."
-Peter Hammill
