Today Enter Shikari announced the postponement of the last UK shows and part of the European tour in early 2022.
“Following the postponement of the remaining three U.K. tour dates yesterday, we have unfortunately been forced to cancel the German & Swiss dates for the forthcoming Jan / Feb 2022 European tour, and postpone Netherlands & Belgium,” they wrote in a statement on Twitter
The Antwerp’s show will now take place on June 26 and the Amsterdam has been rescheduled to July 26.
Here is the group’s official statement :
“Following the postponement of the remaining three U.K. tour dates yesterday, we have unfortunately been forced to cancel the German & Swiss dates for the forthcoming Jan / Feb 2022 European tour, and postpone Netherlands & Belgium. As time has progressed it has been become abundantly clear that, due to a mixture of venue capacity restrictions, curfews and travel implications, that the tour simply cannot go ahead as planned.
Rescheduling the German / Swiss dates under the current uncertain circumstances – not to mention lack of venue availability – was proving impossible and unfortunately leaves us with no alternative but to take the sad decision to cancel those dates outright.
Refunds are now possible for all these shows from point of purchase.
As a band and team we have never taken any cancellation lightly (up until 2020, we had only ever cancelled two shows), so we are deeply disappointed not to be able to play all of these shows as planned.
The news is better for Amsterdam & Antwerp ; we were able to reschedule those shows, and now they will happen in the summer.
Antwerp, BE – Trix – 26 JUNE 2022
Amsterdam, NL – Melweg – 26 JULY 2022
Original tickets are still valid for the new dates. If you are unable to attend, refunds are available from wherever you purchased from.
We are incredibly saddened not to be able to see you this time around in these venues, and thank you for both your understanding and your continued support. We will endeavour to return to Germany and Switzerland (as well as more of Europe, as things return more to normal) as soon as possible so please keep an eye on our site for news of shows.
We will return …“
