In response to the growing coronavirus pandemic, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds have postponed their entire European and UK tour.

Coming in support of last year’s stellar Ghosteen, the expansive trek was originally marked to begin April 22nd and last through June 17th. Cave & co. were supposed to visit such European cities as Lisbon, Madrid, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Madrid, Vienna, Rome, Paris, and Budapest. In the UK, where they were due to play alongside Courtney Barnett, their scrapped dates include Leeds, London, and Glasgow.

“While hugely disappointing, this feels the best course of action to keep you all as safe as possible,” the band noted in a statement. “We are working hard to finalise when the rescheduled shows will take place, and will share detailed information with you as soon as we have it. All existing tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled shows.”

Additionally, the Copenhagen art exhibit dedicated to Cave, “Stranger Than Kindness”has also been postponed.

As of now, Cave and the Bad Seeds are expected to return to the road in September, just in time for their North American fall tour with Weyes Blood. Tickets for those concerts are still available and you can grab yours here.

This tour is one of hundreds to be affected by COVID-19, which has so far claimed over 9,000 lives worldwide. In just the last few weeks, the collapse of the live music industry has resulted in postponed tours from the Foo Fighters, Billie Eilish, Elton John, and Thom Yorke. Meanwhile, festivals like Coachella, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, and SXSW have all had to drastically alter their plans. For a full list of the affected tours and live events, head here.
