Re-Scheduling due to coronavirus23 Mar, 2020

As everyone might imagine, our touring plans for this May are having to be put on hold in the light of the current crisis. However, we are not going to cancel the upcoming dates we are going to postpone & re-schedule them which means all tickets thus far bought will remain valid for the new dates when we announce them. We are aiming to basically simply shift the tour, keeping to the same venues wherever possible, to a time when everybody feels safe to come out and see us play live.

The dates affected are

May 13 : La Maroquinerie, Paris, France
May 14 : Roma, Antwerp, Belgium
May 15 : Gebäude 9, Cologne, Germany
May 16 : Paradiso Noord, Amsterdam, Netherlands
May 18 : SO36, Berlin, Germany
May 19 : Markthalle, Hamburg, Germany
May 21 : Islington Assembly Hall, London, UK

Until then, please keep safe!

Cancellations due to coronavirus13 Mar, 2020

Unfortunately we have now had to cancel our remaining N American dates..

In over 40 years of existence we’ve pretty much never pulled a gig let alone not finish a tour but circumstances are against us and we’ve been left with a set of diminishing options. Unfortunately, the following shows are cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

March 13 Boston, MA Sinclair,
March 14 Ottawa, ON Bronson Centre
March 16 Toronto, ON The Great Hall
March 17 Austin, TX Barracuda
March 18 Austin, TX Hotel Vegas

The Re-Wire Festival in Den Haag is also cancelled

We are also sure people would much rather see us under happier circumstances and we will make sure that we take the opportunity to revisit the places we have missed this time when we all get to the other side of the current crisis. Be safe. Wire
