P.O.D. have cancelled their European tour. The band pulled the plug on the trek due to safety guidelines, travel restrictions, and festival cancellations related to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group commented:

“Family –

There is so much optimism in the world today that soon we’ll all see each other again at a P.O.D. concert. We can’t begin to tell you how much we miss playing our music and sharing our songs with you.

Unfortunately, given a number of factors, including local safety guidelines, travel restrictions, and festival cancellations, we must also do what is necessary and announce that we are cancelling the Circles European Tour.

We’ve been assured that you will receive a full refund at your original point of purchase.

The band has been using the downtime on so many projects and we know that we’ll all be together again soon.

Better days ahead!

– Sonny, Marcos, Traa, Wuv”

Disturbed Officially Cancel “The Sickness” 20th Anniversary Tour With Staind & Bad Wolves

Disturbed have officially cancelled their “The Sickness” 20th anniversary tour with Staind and Bad Wolves due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“Disturbed Ones – It is with great disappointment that we must announce the cancellation of The Sickness 20th Anniversary Tour dates that were rescheduled for this summer. We, like all of you, were very much looking forward to rocking out together again, after a year’s delay. We’ve waited to see if we could play the shows and by now, we had hoped there would be more clarity and a clearer direction as how to make this possible. Unfortunately, as the tour takes us to different cities and states with a variety of unclear restrictions, it becomes unfeasible to move forward. We felt waiting any longer and canceling last minute, especially after you all have waited this long, would be unfair. For those who purchased tickets, there is nothing further you need to do – refunds will automatically be issued at your point of purchase. We want to thank all our fans for your wonderful support, and we look forward to the time when we can all be together.”

We will be rebooking an extensive North American run for 2022 when it’s safe to play live concerts again. Stay safe and looking forward to seeing you all on the other side of this!”

Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) Cancels Spring UK Tour

Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) has cancelled his spring UK tour with The Cruel Knives and Paul Bartolome due to the coronavirus pandemic. Worsnop commented:

“Due to extended lockdowns and restrictions it was requested that the April/May tour be pushed back once again. I don’t want everyone’s money to be held that long so – though it pains me to do so – I am cancelling the tour. We will be rebooking once it looks like we’re in the clear. In the meantime I have new music coming that hopefully will scratch your DW itch until I can put this back together and get over there.”

Northlane Cancel 2021 Summer European Festival Tour

Northlane have cancelled their summer run on the European festival circuit due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band said they will now be “focusing on [their] music and taking up opportunities to play for [their] fans at home.”

The group commented:

“2020 was the year from hell for most of you and this year so far, feels quite the same. While music is a refuge from your daily struggles, it can’t replace the fact that there have been drastic changes, losses of jobs, houses and loved ones.

Like many in our line of work, we’ve been off the road for almost a year now. With most of the band living under strict lockdown in Melbourne for the majority of the year, it’s been a struggle to say the least.

We were booked to play a run of festivals in Europe over June 2020. Every single one of those dates was cancelled and pushed back into mid 2021. The European festival circuit is the peak of touring for us and we’ve been looking forward to it, albeit with a sense of apprehension of whether or not it would go ahead.

We planned to wait it out and see, but we’ve been forced to make a call on it now, and unfortunately our decision has been to cancel our entire European festival run. We could sit on our hands and wait to find out, or move forward with alternate plans that put us in a position of far less risk.

While we are not ones to shirk our commitments to these festivals, promoters and our fans, we needed to put ourselves first in this situation, not to mention the health and wellbeing of our crew and fans. We didn’t want to wait for a tour that might never happen, and we didn’t want to be coerced into a situation where we are compromising safety and potentially spending weeks in isolation to travel to the other side of the world.

With so much uncertainty it did not make sense for us to sit idle and wait. Instead, we will be focusing on our music and taking up opportunities to play for our fans at home. That being said, we are already plotting our return to Europe and the UK, and when the time is right, and the world is less crazy, we’ll be back bigger and better than ever.

In the meantime, if you happen to live in Australia you can catch us at Full Tilt.”

As I Lay Dying, Whitechapel & Shadow Of Intent Cancel North American Tour

As I Lay Dying have officially cancelled their tour with Whitechapel and Shadow Of Intent due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“AILD fans, This may not come as a surprise but due to the global pandemic and uncertain status of live entertainment, we’ve decided to cancel the Burn To Emerge Tour that was set to take place in February/March 2021 with Whitechapel and Shadow of Intent. We feel this is the best course of action given the circumstances and would prefer our fans to have their money back sooner than later. Please contact your point of purchase for refunds. We remain optimistic for a long term solution to the Covid-19 crisis and hope to re-connect with our fans in the near future. In the meantime, please take care of each other.”

We will also be participating in a live chat during the streaming event and on the live Zoom after party (directly after the show) which will be free to all ticket holders.

In addition to the live tickets we have 2 special bundles available including an exclusive Live: In Isolation Tee designed by @stuartdouglasross, and a limited to 150 Live Event Exclusive Vinyl variant color of Ultraviolet, “Purple Clouds.” As well as a special co-band Tee design.
