Deftones issued the following statement:

“As everyone knows, difficult decisions are a part of life, and we faced one recently. After much contemplation, we’ve made the decision to postpone our summer tour with Gojira one more time. As passionate as you are about seeing us, we are even more so to be back on stage together again. With the imminence of the tour, and the pandemic lasting longer than we anticipated, we came to the realization that uncertainty still remains in different markets throughout the country. We do not want to be in a situation where shows have to be adjusted or cancelled on short notice for any guideline adjustments or reconsiderations while we are on the road.

This is not an easy decision, but one we felt necessary. Giving this tour a little more breathing room will give space to, and help ensure we can make every date with confidence. We can’t thank you enough for your patience so far, and keeping with it just a bit longer. April will be here before we all know it.

If you bought tickets for one of the 2021 shows and cannot make the rescheduled show, you will receive an email directly allowing you to request a refund. For more details, please visit Livenation.com/refund. Please hold on to your tickets, as they will be honored for the 2022 dates. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Tickets for the added dates (Las Vegas, Cincinnati, Nashville) go on sale Friday, 7/16 @ 10AM local.

(Note: Poppy will not be joining us on the rescheduled North American dates)

See you all soon.

Poppy And Nita Strauss To Perform At WWE NXT “TakeOver: Stand & Deliver” Event

Poppy and Nita Strauss will be performing at the upcoming “NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver” event in Tampa, FL. Strauss is set to perform the U.S. national anthem on night one (April 7), while Poppy is set to perform a new song on night two (April 8).

Paul “Triple H” Levesque told Billboard the following about Poppy’s performance:

“[Poppy is] custom built for us and we immediately reached out. NXT, a two-hour weekly live show, caters to a younger demographic and we typically have up-and-coming talent that we’ve been able to expose them in a bigger way to the world outside of their genre. It’s a great platform for her and it’s great for us.”

Strauss also commented on her performance via Instagram:

“IT’S TRUE!!! I am incredibly excited to get on stage to kick off #Wrestlemania week this Wednesday with the National Anthem at #NXTTakeover Stand & Deliver 👊🏻 Time to get #NXTLOUD!!!! 🇺🇸 #WeAreNXT”

This news comes after it was recently revealed that New Years Day’s Ash Costello will be performing Rhea Ripley’s entrance theme at WrestleMania 37.
