Gojira Cancel Remaining 2020 Dates

Gojira have officially cancelled their remaining shows for 2020. This news comes after the band’s North American tour with Deftones and Poppy was recently postponed.

Gojira commented:

“Since the emergence of the Covid-19 and subsequent pandemic, we unfortunately are forced to cancel Gojira shows, including headline dates, for the year of 2020.

We are diligently working on a touring schedule for next year, 2021. Although we are not in the position to confirm any shows for this new period at this time , we do hope to have more news for you all in the coming weeks.

We are sensitive to the fact that the pandemic has caused hardships for many of you, this is why we decided to cancel our headline shows so you all can receive refunds now.

Please contact your original point of purchase for refund information.

We can no wait to get back out on the road to play for you all, but until then, please stay safe and be kind to one another!


System Of A Down Cancel European Dates

System Of A Down have cancelled six European dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the band did reschedule their Zürich show for June 8, 2021.

The group commented:

“To all our fans, System Of A Down thanks you for your patience and understanding throughout this COVID-19 pandemic.

As you know, our scheduled tour dates for 2020 were forced to change due to the global crisis and we have been working with our promoters and local governments to collectively create a safe environment going forward. With that being said, we are rescheduling our tour for the summer of 2021.

Due to circumstances that are out of our control, this has regrettably led to the cancellation of some of our headline shows that were planned for this year. Though this is disappointing for our fans and for us, we hope to revisit these cities along with many more in the future. The shows affected are listed below.

03.06.2020 – Amsterdam @ Ziggo Dome: http://saveyourticket.nl/#info

We are also looking forward to playing some European festivals in June 2021. Those festivals will be announcing their line-ups soon, so please keep an eye on all of our social channels for more information.”

Incubus Cancel U.S. And European/UK Dates

Incubus have cancelled their May/June dates in the U.S., UK, and Europe due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band were hoping to reschedule, but they were unable to do so.

Incubus commented:

“To our friends in the US, UK and Europe, we regret to announce that our May and June dates are officially being cancelled. As much as we were holding out hope that we could get these dates rescheduled and see you guys in the near future, this is unfortunately the best course of action at this time.

Refunds will be available at the point of purchase from your authorized retailer and we apologize for any disappointment this brings. We look forward to bringing our show to you as soon as it’s safe to do so and in the meantime, make sure to take care of yourself and others. Much love ❤️ INCUBUS“

This news comes after the band’s summer tour with 311 and Badflower was recently cancelled.

A Day To Remember Cancel Four UK Shows

A Day To Remember previously postponed their European/UK tour with Grandson due to the coronavirus pandemic, but now it looks like several UK shows will not be rescheduled. The band issued the following statement:

“Due to the ongoing uncertainty of when events may happen, our Leeds, Hatfield, Nottingham, and Cardiff shows have been cancelled and ticket holders will receive an automatic refund. We’re still working hard to reschedule the rest of the dates and tickets will still be honored when that happens. If you have any questions about your tickets or refunds, please contact your point of purchase.”

Slipknot Officially Cancel Spring/Summer Dates

Slipknot have officially cancelled their spring/summer dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band issued the following statement:

“Unfortunately Slipknot’s summer 2020 touring, including the North American Knotfest Roadshow, Knotfest UK and Knotfest at Sea, will not be happening. The band looks forward to performing for its fans again, and will do so when everyone’s safety can be assured. All ticket holders will be emailed directly with refund options, Knotfest At Sea purchasers will be contacted with postponement information.”

Failure Cancel July Shows

Failure have officially cancelled their July shows in Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York due to the coronavirus pandemic. Those dates were supposed to feature full album performances of “Comfort,“ “Magnified,” and “Fantastic Planet.“

Failure commented:

“Failure fans and anyone who bought tickets to any of the nine shows the band was scheduled to perform this July 2020. All nine shows are officially cancelled. The band have been planning and preparing to do the shows, but the reality is concerts like this are not going to be safe well past July, and may not be allowed to comeback until wide adoption of a vaccine is in place.

Although the band does plan to eventually reschedule these shows, we feel it would be a mistake to reschedule them at this point, when there is no realistic way of knowing when concerts will be safe again. We are very aware that many ticket holders for these shows also have travel and accommodation bookings to contend with and we don’t want you to have to deal with rescheduling all of that twice.

As soon as the path forward for safe concerts becomes clearer, we will rebook these shows. The band wants everyone to know how disappointed we are that these shows are cancelled, but in the big picture this is just a delay, and these shows will eventually happen.

In the meantime, some good news to report. The band just received a second set of test pressings from the plant that is manufacturing the Failure 1992-1996 Box Set and they sound great! We are approving them and hope to see the Box Set move into production next week! Stay tuned.


Motionless In White Officially Cancel Tour With Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, & Ovtlier

Motionless In White have officially cancelled their U.S. tour with Knocked Loose, Stick To Your Guns, and Ovtlier due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band are still planning to rebook the trek at some point, but they decided to cancel it for the time being so fans can get refunds.

Motionless In White said the following:

“U.S MIW Fans –

After processing the information our band and team have been receiving regarding the uncertain future of live events in the near future, as well as factoring in refund policies from various ticketing companies, we have decided to mark the Black & Blue Tour as “canceled” for the time being.

We fully plan to rebook the tour as early as we can once we start to see live events returning around the world. Though this is a tough decision, considering it “canceled” now allows you to collect refunds and that is what we feel is the best course of action.

We hope that everyone is staying healthy and sane right now. We are looking forward to finally getting back on the road to see you.”

Papa Roach, Hollywood Undead, & Ice Nine Kills Officially Cancel Remaining European Dates

The remaining dates on Papa Roach, Hollywood Undead, and Ice Nine Kills’ European tour have officially been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The bands were previously planning to reschedule the shows, but they were unable to do so.


Suicidal Tendencies Cancel Spring/Summer Dates

Suicidal Tendencies have cancelled their spring and summer dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. The group also confirmed that Infectious Grooves’ June show has been cancelled as well.

The band commented:

“Unfortunately due to the Corona virus, concerts and gatherings pretty much all around the World are being cancelled.

Obviously peoples health and safety come first at this time and it’s out of our hands.

Hellfest in France that both ST and IG were supposed to play this year has been cancelled and they are hoping to move to June 2021.

All the upcoming ST shows and festivals in May, June, July and August have been cancelled or postponed to next year.

We hopefully will have info on the postponed shows.

Also, the Infectious Grooves show at the Warfield Theatre on June 13th has been cancelled.

If you purchased your tickets via AXS online or phone, a refund will automatically be issued to the credit card you used to purchase within 30 business days. Otherwise, refunds are available at your original point of purchase.

Because no one really knows at this time when they things will go back “to normal”, most festivals and events can’t be moved and are setting up for next year or cancelling.

Again, we’ll have more info as we get it, but it will probably be awhile before anyone really knows what’s going on.

ln the meantime, STay Safe and Sane!”
