As much as we were rooting for shows to happen this fall, it’s looking highly unlikely to see any concert or tour happen for the rest of the year. At least we can assume this goes for international acts even if we are willing to wear a protective suit. With that being said, Eluveitie were forced to cancel their North American fall tour with Insomnium and Infected Rain due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This marks the second cancelled tour for Insomnium. However, at least they received notice before flying into the United States.
Read Eluveitie’s statement below:
“Dear fellow metalheads,
You all have probably already suspected it – and it is with a heavy and bleeding heart that we have to confirm your apprehension:
Due to the current covid-19 pandemic we are now forced to cancel our upcoming North American tour.
Believe us, we are as much bummed as you are.
Even more since we don’t know how long this crazy situation is going to last.
The only thing we can sincerely promise you is that we won’t give up, we won’t leave you hanging and that we will get a new North American tour up as soon as it will be possible again! And of course we’ll keep you posted on this!
And until that day we’ll do our very best to still give you as much as we can through the distance! If you’re not doing it already, please check our official social media channels as well as those of our particular band members – you’ll find a lot of worth watching stuff!
We’re with you all! Be safe!”
