Arlo Parks postpones her upcoming UK and Ireland tour: “We will dance again when it’s safe”

The live dates will now take place in the autumn

Arlo Parks has rescheduled her upcoming UK and Ireland headline tour.

The London artist had been hoping to play live in support of her January-released debut album ‘Collapsed In Sunbeams’ later this month, but the current coronavirus-enforced restrictions on large-scale gatherings have forced a rethink of the touring plans.

“It’s with a heavy heart that I’m having to postpone my original May & June UK/EU tour to September,” Parks said in a statement on her Twitter this afternoon (May 7) about the postponement.


“We will dance again when it’s safe, we will cry and shout and buzz with adrenaline!!”
