Skunk Anansie '[email protected]': UK and Europe tour delayed again, here's the new schedule as fans hold onto tickets
'Thanks for not hanging on and making the decision now. Was hoping could be an autumn tour but know how many bands are trying to juggle dates. Will be a great 2022 spring,' a dan wrote
Skunk Anansie has postponed their '[email protected]' UK and Europe tour for a second time. The shows, which were aimed at celebrating the alternative and indie band's 25th anniversary, were originally announced in February 2020 and were to take place in a trio of summer gigs last year followed by an extensive tour through October, November and December 2020.
The UK and European trek was then pushed with a new set of gigs scheduled for June 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, the tour has been postponed again until the spring of 2022. The group's new dates will start on March 4, 2022, at A2 in Wroclaw, Poland and will wrap up on April 27, 2022, at O2 Academy, Leeds.
Skunk Anansie took to their social media to announce the new dates, along with a letter to fans that expresses their disappointment but firm stance towards fans' safety. "This might not come as a huge surprise to some of you, but we’re sad to say we have been forced to postpone our upcoming tour dates," the band began their letter. “We are unbelievably disappointed to not be getting out to see you all this summer, but we have to prioritize everyone’s safety and these shows come just too soon. Trust us when we say this is the last thing we wanted to do."
Skunk Anansie continued, "BUT!! The show must (and will) go on. We are thrilled to have rescheduled our tour dates to SPRING 2022, and are working hard behind the scenes to make these shows our best yet – we’ve got lots of time to make up for and lots of energy to burn off after so long away." Skunk Anansie is open to giving refunds: "If you are unable to make the new dates, refund requests will be handled at the point of purchase. Unfortunately, we have been unable to reschedule our show due to take place on 10th May 2021 at Sala Capitol, Santiago de Compostela. Please contact your ticket provider for refunds." The band concluded, "Big love and thanks to all of you legends that have kept hold of those tickets all this time."
