The 1975 have announced that they cancelled all touring plans for 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic.
The band booked a number of rescheduled dates this year, including shows at London’s Finsbury Park and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park this year, but have cancelled these dates saying it’s the “best course of action” amid uncertainty surrounding live music’s return.
“These are incredibly difficult times for a lot of people, and until we can be sure that we will be able to play shows in a way that is safe for our fans and crew, we have decided the best course of action is to cancel our touring so that, where possible, everyone can get their tickets refunded sooner rather than later,” The 1975 wrote.
But the news isn’t all bad. The confirmed they are already working on their follow up to 2020’s Notes On a Conditional Form.
“We’re currently making a new album and look forward to seeing you all at a show as soon as it is safe to do so,” the band confirmed.
