UK indie band Blossoms have announced that the remainder of their UK tour has been rescheduled.
Blossoms were scheduled to play at Birmingham’s O2 Academy on Friday 27th March but the gig has now been rescheduled for Wednesday 26th August.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has seen the cancellation of many mass gatherings including several sporting events. Concerts and festivals are also rapidly being postponed, Glastonbury being the eye-catching cancellation.
The band from Stockport have played seven of their sixteen gigs from the tour but will have to wait until August to see it out. Ticket companies such as Ticketmaster have informed fans that their purchased tickets will be valid for the rescheduled event.
Blossoms have announced the rescheduled dates for the tour, with the Birmingham concert falling on Wednesday 26th August 2020.
The five-piece band have three released albums, the first coming in 2016. This self-titled debut album was nominated for the Mercury Music Award in 2017 and they were nominated for the British Breakthrough Act at the Brit Awards.
Blossoms’ most recent album ‘Foolish Loving Spaces’, released in January, reached number one in the UK album charts, causing a great demand for tickets on the UK tour.
Fans will be hoping the gigs will go ahead in the summer despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordering UK citizens to stay at home and only leave their house for essential shopping. He’s also advised people to work from home if they can and to only exercise once a day. This advice is expected to be upheld for a minimum of three weeks.
