Gig-goers in London warned of disruption ahead of pipe strikes tomorrow

Gig-goers have been warned of major disturbances in London tomorrow night (November 26) as plumbers prepare to go on strike.

The Piccadilly, Jubilee, Victoria, Central and Northern lines will all be affected, as drivers are set to respond to claims that new shifts will make their work-life balance difficult, reports Mixmag.

Transport for London (TfL) has warned of “serious disruption” and claims they are “hugely disappointed” that the strikes will continue.

The planned walkout starts at 04:00 GMT on Friday and will last for 24 hours.

The move could affect a number of concerts in the capital, including The Offspring’s show at SSE Arena in Wembley, the Courteeners ‘concert at the O2 Brixton Academy, DaĆ°i Freyr’s concert at the O2 Kentish Town Forum, former Kraftwerk member Wolfgang Flurs’ show at The Lexington and Gabrielle’s at The O2 Arena.

The lines including the Bakerloo, Circle, District, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City lines will continue to run as normal, but due to the other lines not running, it is likely that these lines will be much busier than normal.

There are further planned strikes on the Central and Victoria stretches this weekend and further strikes for various stretches planned for next weekend and into next month.

You can find more information and get updates on TfL’s website here.

Meanwhile, The Offspring will end their UK tour with further dates at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow on Saturday (November 27), AO Arena, Manchester on Monday (November 29) and Leeds First Direct Arena on Tuesday (November 30).
