Wolf Alice postpones tour dates amid Covid surges

The band Wolf Alice has postponed their UK tour due to a surge in COVID cases, which was originally set for January. They have confirmed rescheduled dates for their upcoming 2022 UK tour and also announced the postponement of their European dates.

Wolf Alice’s impending UK tour was scheduled to kick off this month but with the rising situation of COVID-19 cases in the UK, the band agreed to postpone.

The band tweeted about the whole situation, saying that they were “absolutely gutted” to be axing their current roster, but noted that ‘people’s safety and access to our concerts is of the utmost importance to us and we feel that is something we can’t ensure at these large indoor shows’.

The postponed shows are now been rescheduled and set to be played across February and March, beginning in Glasgow at the Barrowland Ballroom on February 14-16, with a trio of London shows at the Hammersmith Apollo following.

‘We are sorry to announce that due to high Covid case numbers, risk, and the complexity of navigating a tour through countries with disparate entry and lockdown requirements that we are postponing the Mainland European leg of our Blue Weekend tour,’ the band said today in a statement.

‘We are moving as many of these dates as possible to November, we wish it was sooner, but with a majority of acts rescheduling at the same time, it is super hard to find availabilities.

‘Our UK tour will now take place in February if it is safe at that point to do so. All rescheduled dates are here, all original tickets are still valid and if you cannot make the new date, you can get a refund.’

‘We are so sorry for this inconvenience, know that we are desperate to come and play for you especially in the places we haven’t been for so long and that when we can the joy will be all the more immense!!!’, they added, while announcing their Irish shows in Dublin are yet to be rescheduled but that new dates are coming soon.
