16 November 2021 – Update
A statement from Gyspy’s Kiss has confirmed this gig has been cancelled and refunds are being issued, but to COVID-19 in the touring party.
“We are devastated to announce that this weekend’s show in Hammersmith with the great Buffalo Fish and Ironed Maiden has had to be cancelled due to a positive COVID test in the gig party- we can only thank those friends and fans who had already bought tickets but they will of course be refunded.
“Live music continues to be ‘slapped in the face’ at the moment but we will all return soon and we look forward to seeing you all again at a future show.
“Thank you, as ever, for your support.
“Love, peace and good health. David, Jonathan, Fraser, Ross, Robin and Stu. xxxx”
Gypsy’s Kiss performed their first live gig in 1974 and originally featured bassist Steve Harris, a few years before he went on to form Iron Maiden.
Co-founder David Smith reformed the band in 2018 initially as a one-off occasion to play at Burrfest. However, the response was so great that a decision was made to make the reformation permanent. The critically acclaimed album 74 was released last year and the band will be selling signed copies on the night.
Joining Gypsy’s Kiss at the Hammersmith Club this Saturday will be special guests Buffalo Fish, who feature original Iron Maiden guitarist Terry Wapram.
Opening up this tasty billing will be the UK tribute act Ironed Maiden. The Hammersmith Club is just a stone’s throw from Hammersmith Odeon and can be located just behind the legendary venue in Rutland Grove W6 9DH. The spacious venue is located next to a working man’s club and has wallet-friendly bar prices.
Tickets are just £10 each and can be directly purchased from www.ticketsource.co.uk.
