I've been asked to relay this to you all by someone very close to the band:

All remaining dates on this tour have been postponed due to COVID-19, and the associated impact on international travel and large gatherings.

The band are trying to reschedule all dates, but doubtless some will be logistically impossible to rearrange.

I understand everyone involved with the band are absolutely gutted about having to do this, but I'm sure everyone understands that this is the only safe, logical course of action.

An official announcement (either from the band or from the various venues) will likely be made in due course, but the remaining tour dates are definitely OFF.

Sorry folks. :(

At first I missed Oslo gig last year in the last moment due to personal issues, and now the gig I wanted to attend is postponed when I've got plane tickets to Madrid without refund.

Well, hope they will someday revisit mother Russia.

Stay safe, folks

Makes the fire alarm at Copenhagen last year seem like a blip.
Sensible thing to do. Had a lovely day in Maastricht today, and with our cartoon of a prime minister (never my prime minister) likely to copy anything Trump does, I've booked flights home tomorrow. Hope to get back here and to Den Haag of they reschedule because it's a gorgeous place.

Maybe you're lucky and flights to Madrid are forbidden by that date ... :wink: ...

It’s the right thing to do.
Thanks for the update. (Wish I’d stuck with my original plan to see the uk dates!!)

Inevitable sadly. Maybe they'll throw in an extra UK (or even Irish!) date around the rescheduled ones. Or I might even save the pennies to see them somewhere nice. I do have an Irish passport, so no visas or queuing! ;D :wink:

Yes, good advise, do keep an eye on what happens to your flights even if you're not going now - normal rules often do not apply in situations like these, and you may very well be refunded or at least rebooked regardless of what kind of ticket you bought.

I can by the way vouch for that September is a wonderful time in Madrid 8)

I guess, up to this point, cancelation concerns this leg of tour. Gig in Wroclaw is planned for 2nd of May.

"Live News" has been updated:

"As a result of Covid-19, the upcoming indoor concerts have been postponed, to be rescheduled for September. Italy has been confirmed already, and other dates will be posted here when they have been arranged. It is expected that all existing tickets will remain valid for the new dates, and any exceptions to this will be noted here too.

So far none of the announced summer festivals have been affected, but obviously the situation is changing rapidly, so please check here for any alterations or cancellations."


Next scheduled show will be Suikerrock in July.
