A statement from the group confirmed: “We have taken the decision to reschedule the Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds European and UK tour. While hugely disappointing, this feels the best course of action to keep you all as safe as possible.
“We are working hard to finalise when the rescheduled shows will take place, and will share detailed information with you as soon as we have it. All existing tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled shows.
“Sending love to you all. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.”
