Wolf Parade schrapt Europese tour vanwege coronavirus

4 maart 2020

Wolf Parade heeft heel de Europese tournee geschrapt vanwege het coronavirus. In een statement zeggen de bandleden het ‘onverantwoordelijk en potentieel gevaarlijk’ te vinden op tournee te gaan.

Bericht van de band: To our dear fans in Europe and the UK,
Wolf Parade is sad to announce we have decided to cancel our upcoming tour overseas. Due to the sudden rise of COVID-19 throughout different regions we were scheduled to play, and the current volatility of the situation, we feel strongly that it would be both globally irresponsible and potentially risky for the band to carry out the tour at this time. The amount of major airports, international driving, and crowds of people we would be interacting with – they all combine to form what is ultimately a bad idea; a recipe for a potential worst-case-scenario in which we could end up being unknown carriers of the virus across multiple borders, or end up ill and/or quarantined ourselves overseas. We did not arrive at this decision easily, but A rescheduling of the dates is planned, but not set yet, so we advise all current ticket holders to get a refund for the cancelled dates now. We will wait in hopes that this virus passes quickly and that all those already affected pull through.
