King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard have confirmed new dates for their North American tour, which was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The tour, which was supposed to run from April to May, will now take place in October. It includes three dates in Berkeley, California and Denver, Colorado, where the Melbourne psych rock band will play three-hour marathon sets of material from all their albums, as well as festival appearances at Coachella and Shaky Knees. Find the full list of new dates and venues below.
King Gizzard revealed the dates on Saturday, March 21, three days after announcing the tour’s postponement.
“Ok let’s try this again! We’ve worked really hard trying to make it to as many of you as we can,” the band wrote on Instagram. “If you’ve got any questions about your ticket, talk to your local venue. Look after yourselves and your quarantine buddies. Peace and love.” See the post below.
King Gizzard are still due to tour Europe and the UK from June till August.
On March 18, King Gizzard also called off Melbourne screenings of their new movie Chunky Shrapnel. The film, which they announced on March 7, was due to screen at the St. Kilda cinema Astor Theatre on April 3 and April 4. The cinema will be processing ticket refunds.
“We’ll be listening to experts and taking advice about what is best for the human race going forward,” the band wrote of their plans amidst the pandemic. “Heaps of new tunes on the way too. Stay home. Look after each other.” See the post below.

COVID-19 UPDATE The science says no large gatherings so unfortunately we’re postponing all April/May shows. Playing music for y’all means so much to us so we’ll be rescheduling as many shows as we possibly can. Hold onto your tickets as they will be valid for the new dates, otherwise the venues will be offering refunds. We’ll keep you posted. The Astor Theatre are working through refunding tickets to our film, Chunky Shrapnel. We’ll be listening to experts and taking advice about what is best for the human race going forward. Heaps of new tunes on the way too. Stay home. Look after each other.
