With almost everyone self-isolating, a lot of artists have been speaking out and postponing, rescheduling, or even outright canceling future performances. We have made a cancellation masterlist for all the tour and festival news you need right now, and while we’re all saddened by this and some of us frustrated but understand the artists we love are putting our health first.
Concerts & Tours

Recently Watsky dropped his new album Placement. With tour dates planned for the release, it was with a tearful note Watsky informed us all, that they would be canceled and hopefully rescheduled. Fans could either get a refund or have their ticket honored at a rescheduled date. As of yet, those reschedule dates are still unknown and unlikely until 2021 for similar venue spots.
Amid the cancelations we have a rescheduled tour in the UK for Louis Tomlinson. With dates in September is a shining hope this will all be over by Fall. Fans are excited but as we all know health and safety come first. Louis wants us first and foremost to stay positive during these times!

Mr. Styles has been pretty quiet, leaving fans on edge waiting for some kind of announcement. Thankfully though, our questions are now being answered.
