Today I am postponing our upcoming North American tour. I’m really sorry to have to do this, but of course, there is no other way. The situation right now is extreme, and it is important to limit the spreading of COVID-19 as much as possible.
We are in the process of rescheduling some of the shows, but at the moment I don’t have more information than that.
Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.
I feel for artists, the people who work with them, curators, small venues, promoters, agents, and other freelance workers all over the globe who are suddenly losing their income for what could be a lengthy time period. Now is the time for supporting those artists as much as you can in other ways – buying records and listening closely, or via other channels.
I also feel for the audiences who are not able to gather in a safe space, all the people who are prohibited from coming together to speak a communal language. We gather because we need to.
Me and my band are currently working on alternative ways to communicate The Practice of Love (The Practice of Quarantine? The Practice of Love in the age of Corona?), which I will keep you posted on.
Meanwhile, stay safe, wash your hands, and take care of each other as best you can.
I’ll write more soon.
