Gorillaz Cancel “The Getaway” North American Tour Dates
Gorillaz have left fans disappointed with the recent announcement that the virtual band have cancelled their upcoming North American tour, which was slated to start from September. The cancellation, which the band states is due to “scheduling conflicts and circumstances beyond our control,” comes as a blow to many who were eagerly awaiting the group’s show, following the announcement of “The Getaway Tour” only three weeks ago.
The proposed tour was set to feature performances from the band in major cities across the U.S., including Los Angeles, Austin, Chicago, and Boston. The Gorillaz tour was also to be joined by guest artists Kaytranada, Lil Yachty, and Remi Wolf.
In a heartfelt message to their fans, the Gorillaz expressed their disappointment, saying, “We are gutted not to be able to perform for you this year. We were really looking forward to it and we hope to get back to you again as soon as we can. We love our Gorillaz family and we can’t wait to see you again.”
Ticketing agents have sent out emails to those who had already secured their spots for the concerts, explaining that refunds will be processed as soon as possible. The messages assured fans that there is no need for them to take any action at this time, and that refunds should be completed within the next 30 days. See message below.
Due to scheduling conflicts and circumstances beyond our control, the previously announced Gorillaz shows in September have been cancelled. Refunds will be issued automatically at your point of purchase and will be processed as quickly as possible, there is nothing further for you to do at this time. Please allow for up to 30 days for the refund to process.
Despite this setback, it’s clear the band remains committed to their music and fans and are eager to return to the stage when circumstances allow.
