The Decemberists Cancel Rescheduled North American Tour
The band would have brought their 20th anniversary show to Toronto this summer
Published Mar 17, 2021After postponing and rescheduling their 20th anniversary North American tour due to COVID, the Decemberists have outright cancelled their upcoming summer trek.
The band made the announcement in a series of social media posts, sharing that while concerts may be a possibility this year as vaccines roll out across the continent, they are choosing to play it safe by revisiting their tour plans sometime in 2022.
The band writes:
We were really hoping to be able to bring this 20th/21st anniversary show on the road this summer. And while there's every reason to be optimistic about the state of the pandemic and the possibility of live shows in the future, we don't think it's going to happen in July/August.
There's so much uncertainty about playing these shows safely, especially the indoor ones, that we thought the best decision is to cancel. Yeah, we're bummed.
We plan on touring next summer; whether that will be in the vein of a similar tour or something new altogether, it's too soon to say. We promise to be out there again, seeing all your shining, singing faces — covered or uncovered.
They also announced their intention to put another anniversary celebration together in lieu of their scheduled performances. Stay tuned for more information on that as it becomes available.
Refunds for the Decemberists' tour are being made available at point-of-purchase.
