Goodluck cancels summer concerts, sorry for unmasked live performance

Electronic band Goodluck has issued an apology and set the record straight after video footage of its live performance at La Parada in Cape Town went viral.


In the video, the band's lead singer Juliet Harding is singing on top of a table with an unmasked crowd singing along around her.

In a statement, the band says it was a limited seated outdoor event that was in line with Covid-19 regulations.

"One-hundred-and-fifty-five tickets were sold to this event; temperatures were checked at the door and everyone was sanitised before entering. Customers were instructed by the venue to wear masks at all times except when eating and drinking.

"We were informed that customers were supposed to stay at their tables and not moved around throughout the event. The rules were largely adhered to until the last 3 minutes into our last song were everyone got excited and started jumping around between the tables as seen in the video.”

The band has apologised for not stopping at that moment and instructing the crowd to be seated.

Their statement says the owners of the venue have also apologised for letting their guard down.

The band has canceled its ‘Get Lucky’ summer concert series that were planned for the festive period.
