The 1975 reschedule February 2020 tour dates for October 2020

If you live in Europe and were pumped to see the 1975 in the spring, then we have some bad news for you guys.

On Wednesday (Dec. 11), the British band made the disheartening news that due to complications with their upcoming new album, their European tour set for February 2020 will now happen in October.

“Due to the time needed to complete the recording of the upcoming album Notes on a Conditional Form, we have made the decision to move the 1975’s EU tour from February 2020 to October 2020,” the band posted on social media.

All tickets purchased for the February dates will remain valid. For those who will not be able to attend the newly rescheduled shows (because life does happen after all), refunds will be available at the original point of purchase.

The newly rescheduled tour dates include gigs in Barcelona, Madrid, Lisbon, Amsterdam, Berlin, Zurich, Milan, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Oslo.

In addition to the postponed dates, the foursome has also added four new stops to the rescheduled itinerary: Oct. 8 at Le Zénith in Paris, Oct. 21 at Stodola in Warsaw, Oct. 23 at Gasometer in Vienna, and Oct. 26 at Saku Surrhall in Tallinn.

While a slew of the band’s European shows was rescheduled, it looks like they will still appear at Australia’s Laneway Festival and headline their United Kingdom shows.

The 1975’s much-anticipated new album Notes on a Conditional Form is due out Feb. 21, 2020, through Dirty Hit / Interscope. Pre-orders are available for purchase here.

The band’s full statement about the postponed shows can be read below:

Due to the time needed to complete the recording of the upcoming album Notes on a Conditional Form, we have made the decision to move The 1975’s EU tour from February 2020 to October 2020.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that everyone can make the new shows.

We understand that this will be a cause of upset, but rest assured the delay will make for the best shows possible.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you in October.

All original tickets remain valid. For all those who cannot make the new dates, you will be able to get refunds at your original point of purchase.

The Cure Extend Massive 2016 Tour to Europe

After announcing a lengthy North American tour schedule for next summer (and even having to add an additional date to their final stop in Miami), The Cure have unveiled plans to take the extravaganza home to Europe in the fall of 2016.

New Found Glory Welcome Guest on Stage


New Found Glory are currently across the pond in Europe on the European leg of their current tour. During one of their stops, the band brought on stage a special guest to contribute vocals to their hit song, “My Friends Over You” from 2002’s Stick and Stones.

The special guest on hand was Paramore frontwoman, Hayley Williams.

For those who don’t know or follow any of the band and band members’ social media accounts, Williams has been hanging out with the band which feature her boyfriend of several years, Chad Gilbert.

Check out the fan shot video of Williams on stage with New Found Glory.

Maroon 5 to Head Out on World Tour in 2015


How do you remind people that you are one of the biggest bands in music and have been for a decade or so?

Released your new album and a full list of tour dates on the same exact day, of course!

That’s exactly what Maroon 5 did today. Not only did their fifth studio album, V come out today, but they have announced their full 2015 World Tour (or should we call it world domination) dates.

The tour is slated to begin on February 16 in Dallas at the American Airlines Center and travel all around North America until April 3 at the Forum in Inglewood, CA (the same place the MTV Video Music Award were held and the band were told they needed to perform outside).

After that, they will jump across the pond and begin the European installation of the tour on May 26 at London’s Wembley Arena. The European tour will wrap up on June 17 in Lisbon, Portugal at the Meo Arena.

Supporting the band on the trek will be those “Rude” boys, MAGIC! while Rozzi Crane will open the show all over North America and Nick Gardener will take that role during the European dates.

Morrissey Officially Announces European Tour Dates


In another attempt to go on a tour, Morrissey has released his first batch of European tour dates in support of his recently release album, World Peace is None of Your Business.

Considering Morrissey’s history with tours, speculation has already begun with how long the singer will actually be on this tour before announcing cancellation plans.

As of now, the European tour is set to kick off on October 6 in Lisbon and wrap up on November 29 in London at the O2 Arena.

These newly released tour dates come several months after the former Smiths frontman had to cancel his North American tour due to several issues that even we aren’t sure of anymore. The original blame was placed on former opening act, Kristeen Young who was kicked off the tour because she supposedly got Moz and his crew sick which she denied. Since Morrissey has such a colorful history of cancelling tour dates, speculation remains.

In the meantime, Morrissey has kept himself busy by fighting with his former (or maybe not former) record label, Harvest/Capitol and announced yesterday on his blog, True to You,that he will be curating a Ramones compilation titled Best of the Ramones on behalf of Sire-Rhino Records. So far, no tracklist or release date has been given for that.

La Dispute Guitarist Parts Way with Band


During the weekend, fans of La Dispute got some saddening news; the band would be losing guitarist Kevin Whittemore.

Whittemore, who helped found the Grand Rapids band, revealed during their hometown show Sunday (April 13), he would no longer be a member of the band. At the time of his announcement, there had been no official reason behind his sudden departure. Two day later, the band’s publicist has confirmed that he has in fact left the band.

“This band has been a dream come true for me… I thank God every day for giving me this opportunity,” the guitarist said, according to a post by Alternative Press.

Though Whittemore had a desire to the leave the band for the unknown reason, it was nice to see that he stayed on the band’s headlining United States tour until the last tour stop in Cleveland last night. Considering the curiosity of fans, an official statement on behalf of the band should be expected.

As for their upcoming European tour which is scheduled to begin on April 27 in Munich, Germany, it can only assume that the tour is still on though, there has been no word on who will be replacing Whittemore. Their upcoming tour is slated to begin in Germany and then visit several places including Austria, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Singapore. After that, they will head to Australia where they will tour from June 7 to June 20 followed by two stops in New Zealand.

Pixies to Head Out on UK Tour


With the release of a brand new track last week, the Pixies have announced that they will be heading out on a four-day UK and Ireland tour as part of their “massive world tour.”

If the first thought that came to you was “how are they going to pull this tour together since now they’re down a bassist?” (remember long-time bassist, Kim Deal left the band abruptly a few weeks back). Kim Shattuck, who’s previously played with The Muffs and The Pandoras has been asked to  join the band taking over the vacant spot.

The new line-up will begin at Dublin’s Olympia on November 18, the head on over to Manchester Apollo on November 21, Glasgow’s Barrowland on November 22 and London’s Hammersmith Apollo on November 24.

These new additions bring the total of European tour dates to 17 which will begin on September 29 in Paris. On their website, it announces that the tour “will give them an opportunity to do something they haven’t been able to do in two decades: premiere brand new Pixies songs, the first collection of new material since 1991’s ‘Trompe le Monde.'”

“Along with everyone’s favourites, we’ll be playing songs that we haven’t played in ages or never played live before,” frontman Black Francis, said on the band’s website.

“Songs like ‘Brick Is Red,’ ‘Havalina,’ ‘Tony’s Theme’ and ‘The Sad Punk.’ We’ve probably rehearsed some 80 songs, so we’ll be able to change up the set at the last minute if we feel like it. We’re all really looking forward to this tour.”
