Unlike the majority of recent live dates, which have been cancelled or postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Kiwanuka was forced to abandon his tour after being diagnosed with acute viral laryngitis earlier in the month (March 5).
The singer has now advised that his spring shows in Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Cambridge, London, Leicester and Leeds have been moved to August and September. All tickets for the original gigs remain valid for the rearranged performances.
“Pleased to announce rescheduled UK tour dates, original tickets remain valid,” Kiwanuka tweeted. “Hope you can make it. Thanks for being patient. Keep safe and well.” See the full post below.
