While the United States is on the precipice of a full reopening, countrywide, our friends in Europe are not so lucky, and that has Meshuggah worried.
The band is not sure the open rates will be sufficent enough in time for their tour in November, five months away, so they decided to play it extra safe and push things back to the spring.
The band wrote in a statement: “Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty that all regions in Europe will be able to restore and provide a safe environment for concerts this autumn, Meshuggah have unfortunately had to make the decision to push back their European headline tour dates to May 2022.
“The good news is that special guests Zeal & Ardor will still be part of the tour and will also be added to the line up for the Royal Albert Hall show in London, and that additional shows in Dublin, Cologne and Nancy have now been added to the routing. Ruhrpott Metal Meeting, being a festival with fixed dates, cannot be rescheduled.”
It’s certainly a bummer for our European friends. Could part of the reason for the delay also be that that the band needs a bit more time in the studio? You know these guys are perfectionists! Either way, I’m into it. Here are the new dates:
May 05 Hamburg EOA GER
