Deftones have been forced to postpone their North American tour until next year, it was announced yesterday.
Originally set to take place next month, Deftones said that due to “the imminence of the tour, and the pandemic lasting longer than we anticipated, we came to the realisation that uncertainty still remains in different markets throughout the country”.
The statement from the band continued: “This is not an easy decision, but one we felt necessary. Giving this tour a little more breathing room will give space to, and help ensure we can make every date with confidence.”
The rescheduled dates will kick off next April in Portland, Oregon, with the trek now featuring an additional three dates, taking place in Las Vegas, Cincinnati and Nashville. Find all dates below.
In 2020, Deftones’ live stint was slated as being in support of their ninth studio album, ‘Ohms’, released last September. The new itinerary means the album will receive its live support 18 months after its initial release.
The tour – which would have seen French heavy metal outfit Gojira accompany the band on the road – had already been postponed from 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic.
While Gojira will still appear on the new bill, Poppy – originally on the 2020 lineup – will not perform next year.
