Covid19 Update

Since the 7th August the venue had held 22 events and we thought we would let you have feedback as to how things have gone to date. It has been wonderful to see audiences back at Acapela enjoying live music.Reopening Covid rules

Too date we have received very positive feedback (and have received no issues reported with regard to Covid operation concerns)  as to how we are currently operating.  See the full venue covid guidelines here.

We have received positive feedback from audiences concerning the “fresh” atmosphere in the venue as a result of the air conditioning pumping in air directly from outside, also the installation of  “Viruskiller” air cleaning units that are on the walls of the venue. With the venue being deep cleaned with fogging machines prior to events, new wipe down tables in the music hall and bar area, together with sanitising stations located across the venue it has certainly made the venue very welcoming. From feedback received from audience members who have recently gone to other music venues it appears that Acapela has gone much further than others in looking to keep our audience members safe and comfortable.

This week the Welsh Govt introduced the requirement that Covid passports would be a legal requirement for all indoor venues with a capacity over 500. This obviously does not impact on Acapela with our capacity being restricted to 200. As a result we are currently not going to request sight of Covid passports. However we would ask that all audience members either be double vaccinated or if for some reason are not able to do so, undertake a lateral flow test showing a negative result on the day of the performance they are attending. In this way we can ensure everyone is protected.Please note we will not ask for evidence of the above, we trust you will think of others and take the responsible action.

We will shortly be sending out a survey to all audience members asking for feedback and I would ask that you take a few minutes to complete this so we can ensure we are taking into consideration concerns people may still have.

Fleetingwood Mac – Concert review

This was my third visit to Acapela Studios since the reopening of the venue and was by far the rowdiest – which was no bad thing.
I’ve been a Fleetwood Mac lover since the earliest days and I even love the middle years from 1971-74 where the band had constant changes but managed to produce some fabulous music which many Fans have not even heard. I urge them to go and seek out the run of albums between Then Play On to Heroes Are Hard To Find – then go and have a look at Bob Welch’s Solo Work. Another tragic chapter in the incredible Fleetwood Mac story.
But back to the show.
With a set list and catalogue of songs to kill for the Sold Out Show was bound to be a success and it was. It was also great to see a nicely female heavy mixed age audience singing away to all of the songs.
The band opened the show with a storming version a Stevie Nicks 1983 solo track, Stand Back from her Wild Hearts album. A great way to kick off Part One of tonight’s show and the crowd was singing along right from the off.
For track 2 it was back to 1987 and Tango In The Night for Christine McVie’s Isn’t It Midnight which gave  Paul, the guitar player, a chance to show us his skill. And to be fair he was on great form all evening with both guitar and vocals.
This is not a band who mimic The Mac. They play their songs in their own unique style and when given the chance, such as in Midnight, they use the opportunity to bring something different to the party in terms of improvisation. And with such well known songs I found this rather refreshing throughout the evening.
By the time of the final song of the set the crowd were cheering, dancing and singing along with abandon as the band launched into Don’t Stop. It was great to see people enjoying themselves after almost 2 years of enduring lockdown. And this was the perfect song for all that pent up energy and emotion to be released. By now I was just sitting there smiling like the Cheshire Cat, just drinking it all in. Absolutely Glorious,
The crowd were so up for it now, the band was not getting away without an encore so they came back with The Chain and ended the show with a blistering version of Go Your Own Way which took me right back to the summer of 1977. Glorious memories indeed.
I was quite unprepared for just how emotional this gig would be to me. Those songs have a resonance which has lasted over 46 years and I didn’t expect the ripples to be still moving but they still are. Little 4 minute time capsules. Music remains a mysterious alchemy of magic and emotion and as long as bands choose to play this music it will always surround us.
Thank you Fleetingwood Mac for such a fabulous evening. I’d happily pay the money to see these guys again.
