The Canadian singer has announced today on Twitter that his dates that were supposed to take place this year will be pushed back to next year. This comes following a whole host of artists postpone theirs.
He was due to play in the UK across the month of October but he has taken the decision to push these back to next year in order to keep himself and his fans safe. Unsurprisingly this has been greeted with disappointment from his fans who were excited to see him play.

Coming off the back of his new album ‘After Hours’, which was highly regarded by fans and critics alike, the global pandemic could not have come at a worse time. No doubt he would have wanted to get out and play the album to his fans soon after.
Watch the video for ‘Blinding Lights’ below:
‘After Hours’ is his fourth studio album and has been called his best. This is no consolation to his fans though as they wanted to see him play it live. The announcement comes after a string of other artists have also announced plans to delay their tours.
Though it is very annoying to see all our favourite artists moving their tour dates, it does mean that when we are able to see them it will be that much better. Fingers crossed it is sooner rather than later.
