Haim postpone UK tour due to COVID travel restrictions

"We’re going to go even harder as soon as we’re allowed to play for you!!!"

Haim have postponed their UK tour for next month until 2022 – you can see the revised schedule below.

The Los Angeles trio were initially due to embark on their ‘One More Haim’ stint this June, but the shows were pushed back to September due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID pandemic.

Tonight (August 17), ticketholders were notified via email that the gigs will now take place in July 2022. A press release cited the CDC’s recent Level Four travel health notice, which imposes restrictions on US citizens from entering the UK.

As per an updated official poster, Georgia will fulfil her previously announced “special guest” slot on next year’s tour. An extra date for Dublin has also been added for June 28 as part of the city’s Trinity Summer Series.

“We can’t wait to bring wimpiii to the stage and we’re going to go even harder as soon as we’re allowed to play for you!!!” Haim wrote on Instagram. “Until then, everybody stay safe and we love you.”

Next month’s shows would have seen Haim showcase their acclaimed third album ‘Women In Music Pt. III’, which came out in June 2020, to UK audiences for the very first time.

The sisters have, however, appeared in various live-streamed settings over the course of the pandemic – including on Glastonbury’s Live At Worthy Farm, which was broadcast back in May.

Reviewing the show, NME wrote: “[Haim played] a gorgeous sunset slot and mark the long-awaited live debut of their huge level-up of a third album, ‘Women In Music Pt. III’. From ‘Summer Girl’ to ‘Don’t Wanna’, Haim’s newest songs feel tailor-made for sunset on the Pyramid Stage, a setting that will surely await them at – fingers crossed – a full-scale Glastonbury in 2022.”
