Meshuggah Cancel Summer 2021 Touring, Plan To Finish New Album

Meshuggah have decided to cancel their summer 2021 touring plans. The band will be using the time to finish their new album, which has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group said the following:

“As previously communicated our intent was to keep our commitment to all festivals and shows planned for summer 2020, that couldn’t take place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, by re-confirming them for the same dates in summer 2021. Full Force Festival is one of these festivals that has already been re-confirmed and re-announced.

However, after seeing some of the other festivals move to completely different weekends in 2021, we eventually found it impossible to go ahead with the tour next summer due to logistical reasons. Which also means that Meshuggah have to cancel their planned appearance at Full Force 2021.

Another influential part of the decision to not tour in summer 2021 is that Covid-19 restrictions have also affected Meshuggah‘s progress with a new studio album, to a point where we now see the need to keep summer 2021 clear to put finishing touches to the album.

Meshuggah and their management would like to apologize to all fans and promoters being affected by this.

Some good news is to be found in here though: there is a new Meshuggah album coming…”

Alter Bridge Cancel Summer European Tour

Alter Bridge have cancelled their summer European tour due to the coronavirus pandemic. With this news, the band have also confirmed that a decision has yet to be made regarding their postponed North American tour with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia.

Alter Bridge said the following:

“As the world continues to develop in the response to the changes of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become clear that no one can provide definitive answers as for how musicians, promoters, local crew, staff and fans can come together in a way that protects everyone and takes in to account the challenges of a world tour.

We have tried to hold out as long as we could, but it is becoming increasingly apparent that our ability to tour Europe this summer in a way our fans have come to expect is no longer an option. We have tried exploring every possibility, but with the different rules and capacities globally we have learned there is no adequate way to move forward.

As we have seen the effect of all of these changes on the world, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the entire European tour. We didn’t want to postpone and wait for an appropriate opportunity to return when so many people have had their lives impacted.

We felt at least by canceling, all the tickets that were sold would be refunded and your money returned to you as opposed to holding it until we could hit the road again. We have always appreciated the undying support of the fans around the globe and we felt this was the right decision to return that support you always give us.

As of this time, this is for the European tour, but there may be a chance you will hear from us again soon about the previous postponed US dates. We are exploring every opportunity to try and see our fans globally as soon as it is appropriate to do so.

Until we can gather together in a live concert setting, take care of yourselves and each other. We are in unprecedented times and our world is changing. It is on all of us to make it better for everyone so we can get together and celebrate our common love of music in the near future.

-AB”

Amaranthe Cancel North American Tour With Battle Beast & Seven Spires

Amaranthe have cancelled their North American tour with Battle Beast and Seven Spires due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band issued the following statement:

“While the cancellation of our U.S. tour probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone, with the COVID-19 situation being far from over with — it is still really devastating for us. We were massively looking forward to visit U.S. soil again after a three-year absence, and judging from the ticket sales, so were you guys — thank you for the support! Obviously, we will be back as soon as we possibly can, so keep your eyes peeled to our sites, and we will be rocking together again before you know it!!”

Tool Cancel Previously Postponed Spring/Summer Dates

Tool have officially cancelled their spring/summer tour. The band were previously planning to reschedule the dates, but they have since decided to scrap the trek so fans can get refunds.

Tool commented:

“As so many music lovers have come to realize over the last several weeks, there is no playbook that artists, promoters and venues can pull from in these unprecedented times.

When we played what would be our final show of 2020, March 11 at Portland’s Moda Center, we believed we would be back on the road sometime this Fall. As we worked towards that goal we’ve come to realize that there is absolutely no certainty in re-scheduling dates for this Fall or 2021. State and local ordinances vary widely and no one can predict when high capacity events will safely return.

At the same time that we were working to reschedule this tour, we read your messages. Messages of job losses, illness, emotional and financial pain. We could continue to postpone or reschedule dates for some time into 2021 but ethically, we do not think this is the right course of action. In our opinion, tying up our fans’ money for months, if not a full year, is unfair. With that in mind, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the tour so we can help support the people who have supported us for years.

Please know, we want nothing more than to return to the road, to play these songs for you and to celebrate our shared recovery. When the time is right, we will do just that.

In the coming days you will receive an email from the ticketing service you purchased tickets through notifying you of the event cancellation and when to expect your refund.”
