Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis
DEAR MUSIC & CONCERT FANS

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

Ady Suleiman

Mascotte, Zürich
Concert

Half-British, half-Tanzanian pop-R&B singer/songwriter Ady Suleiman was born and raised in the historic market town of Grantham, in the East Midlands of England. Growing up on pop music and his DJ father's extensive record collection, he was influenced early by Jimi Hendrix and later by R&B, jazz, hip-hop, reggae, and soul. He started writing his own music at 14 and began performing while at university in Liverpool. On returning to his hometown after graduating, he discovered that an exciting soul scene had developed, and decided to pursue music as a career.

Championed by BBC Radio DJ Dean Jackson, he became popular locally, but really broke out after winning Breakthrough Act of the Year at influential British DJ Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards, leading to support slots with Michael Kiwanuka, Laura Mvula, Lianne La Havas, and others. He was briefly signed to Sony, which put out several of his EPs and singles. While touring and doing promotions, he began to suffer from anxiety and depression, for which he sought treatment. His frank portrayal of his mental health issues in his lyrics, and his willingness to talk about them in interviews, led to his being recruited as an ambassador for the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably). 2018 saw him self-release his debut album Memories, which was entirely self-penned and co-produced with the likes of Eric Appapolay and Grades.
