Pet Shop Boys postpone UK arena tour dates to 2021

The boys will be back in town at a later date

Pet Shop Boys have postponed the UK leg of their upcoming ‘Dreamworld: The Greatest Hits Live Tour’ until 2021.

The duo were supposed to kick off the European leg of their tour in Berlin on May 1, 2020, but due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis they had to postpone the dates until next year.

“In light of recent government advice in relation to the ongoing situation and threat of COVID-19 globally, Pet Shop Boys’ Dreamworld tour can no longer commence as planned in May 2020 and the dates are being rescheduled,” the band said in a post on Instagram.

In light of recent government advice in relation to the ongoing situation and threat of COVID-19 globally, Pet Shop Boys’ Dreamworld tour can no longer commence as planned in May 2020 and the dates are being rescheduled. The European leg of the tour was planned to start on May 1st in Berlin but promoters, following government advice, are working on alternative dates which will be announced shortly. The UK shows have now been rescheduled to May 2021 and the full list of new dates is above. Tickets for the original dates will remain valid for the new dates but refunds will be made available if required in due course. This delay is very disappointing for Pet Shop Boys and all of their team and, of course, for those who have bought tickets but circumstances demand it. We look forward to seeing you in 2021 and, until then, stay safe!

The group’s rescheduled European dates will be announced soon.

Earlier today, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds announced details of their rescheduled UK and European tour for spring and summer 2021.

Touring in support of their acclaimed 2019 album ‘Ghosteen‘, the band were previously forced to postpone their upcoming shows due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Now, they can reveal that they’ll be hitting the road once again next year in April through to June. All original tickets remain valid, with additional tickets on sale from 10am on Friday April 10 here.
