Devin Townsend is the latest artist to postpone tour dates due to the rampant coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Townsend has postponed the remaining North American dates for his Empath, Vol. 1 tour and will be putting up all remaining tour merch on his OMerch website.
Townsend also makes sure to note that this is a postponement and not a cancellation.
To keep up with all the cancelations in light of the coronavirus outbreak, we are keeping a running list to keep you informed that we will update as more news becomes available. Follow that list here.
It is with immense disappointment that I have been put in the position to announce the postponement of the remaining dates on my Empath Vol. 1 North American Tour due to Corona Virus.
With the travel ban In effect from Europe and the consequent chaos that has brought to travel plans, as well as the increasing social unrest, combined with the fact that half of this crew is either European or from the UK, it put us in a tenuous position. Several of the dates have been cancelled by the state, and I suspect many more to come.
This is a postponement, not a cancellation. And your support has been tremendous thus far. The best it’s been in North America. Thank you and immense apologies to those who were looking forward to it.
Also, apologies to our fantastic crew and incredible band for the loss of income.
Thank you for your patience and sorry for the short notice. This came up overnight in a chaotic flurry of new information.
Much love, till next time
Team Dev would very much appreciate your continued support by purchasing the leftover tour merch from Devin's official webstore (www.omerch.com). Plenty of the shirts, CDs, LPs and items that were sold during the tour will soon become available, hopefully, next week already.
