The two bands were meant to begin a co-headline stint across North America in September, but were forced to postpone due to the coronavirus pandemic.

They confirmed the rescheduled tour dates, set to begin in September 2021, on social media. “Please hold on to your tickets as they will be honoured for the new dates,” New Order wrote in a Facebook post.
