Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds postpone European and UK tour amid coronavirus outbreak

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds forced to postpone their tour amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak which has swept the globe.

If you had tickets to Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds for their upcoming European and UK tour we’re afraid the Aussie group have had to put the upcoming shows on ice and will reschedule the dates for a more appropriate time.

The group were due to hit the road in support of their stunning Ghosteen record and will now have to reschedule the dates following the recent announcement.

The statement read: “We have taken the decision to reschedule the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds European and UK tour. While hugely disappointing, this feels the best course of action to keep you all as safe as possible.

“We are working hard to finalise when the rescheduled shows will take place, and will share detailed information with you as soon as we have it. All existing tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled shows.

“Sending love to you all. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.”

The ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease was first officially identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei in China. As of March 19th, more than 220,313 cases of COVID-19 have been officially confirmed but the actual number is thought to be much higher due to substantial under-reporting of cases.

With more than 8,980 people having died from the virus, COVID-19 has now spread into more than 150 other countries—including mainland Europe, South America and North America. Given the exponential growth in cases in countries like Italy and Spain, the WHO have now stated that Europe was the current centre of the pandemic.
