The Used have cancelled their UK tour

The band were due to start the European run of dates in Stockholm last night, before arriving in the UK next week

The Used have cancelled their UK and European tour dates.

The Utah band released their seventh album ‘The Canyon‘ last October. It was the first record not to feature founding member Quinn Allman, who originally left the band in 2015 for a one-year break, but has now been permanently replaced by guitarist Justin Shekoski.

In a post on their official Facebook page last week, which has since been deleted, the group announced they would no longer be able to make it over from America “due to a recent family death”.


The post read: “Due to a recent family death, The Used are saddened to announce the cancellation of their upcoming UK and Europe tour. Please know that the band is deeply sorry and an update will be made soon in regards to ticketing and rescheduled dates. Love, The Used.”

The dates affected are as follows:

Stockholm, Fryshuset (February 4)
Gothenburg, Pustervik (5)
Bochum, Zeche (7)
Zurich, Komplex 457 (8)
Nottingham, Rock City (11)
Manchester, O2 Ritz (12)
Bristol, O2 Academy (15)
London, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire (16)

The Used were formed in 2001 in Utah and have released seven albums during their career including their self-titled debut in 2002, ‘In Love And Death’ (2004), ‘Lies For The Liars’ in 2007, ‘Artwork’, ‘Vulnerable’ and ‘Imaginary Enemy’ in 2014. 

The band also released their live album, ‘Live & Acoustic At The Palace’, in 2016, which was recorded at their show at the Palace in Los Angeles.
