But, there is much to look forward to in 2022 as venues across the region start to add more gigs and performances to their schedules.
We can look forward to everything from stand-up comedy to a bona fide spaceman – as well as some great live music.
So, with everything crossed that we get out of the current restrictions very, very soon, here are ten shows we can recommend …

Jack Docherty: Nothing But
Byre Theatre, St Andrews, April 22.
To one generation, he is Cameron Meikleson in Scots Squad.
But many will recall Docherty as one half of The Channel4 hit show, Absolutely, from the late 1980s.
This evocative, critically acclaimed stage show looks back to those days when he, and comedy side kick Moray Hunter, were the toast of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
It's a love letter to the city, to the festival, and to the the passing of time as he reflects on an instant attraction to a woman in the audience, and the brings the story full circle to his 2018 festival return.
A fantastic piece of storytelling.
