Tears for Fears had to cancel their tour, specifically the remaining concerts from Ireland and the UK due to “unforeseen health concerns.” They delivered the sad news to their fans, announcing that they are postponing their upcoming tour dates for health-related reasons.
The duo, Curt Smith, and Roland Orzabal, was advised to reschedule the concerts’ dates by doctors and they moved the dates for the next year. The medical reason for which the band had to reschedule is still unknown at the moment.
The group released a statement for their fans
The tour is scheduled to begin on January 31 at Dublin’s 3Arena. They promised their fans to focus more on new songs for their very first album since the one that they released back in 2004, the album called Everybody Loves a Happy Ending.
“Tears for Fears have been forced to postpone their forthcoming sold-out UK & Ireland arena tour due to unforeseen health concerns and on doctor’s orders. The tour, due to start April 27th in Leeds, and finish May 12th in Brighton has been rescheduled for early 2019,” reads part of the band’s statement.
They continued, telling their fans that “Tears for Fears apologize to their fans and are extremely sorry for any inconvenience caused. They look forward to working on finishing material for their first new album in fourteen years, with the hope of releasing it this autumn.”
The concerts’ tickets for this year will remain valid for each one of the city’s 2019 concerts, except for Birmingham and Glasgow where the locations have been changed.
All fans who have already purchased tickets will get new ones by their exact same point of purchase. It’s also important to note that fans who will not be able to attend the concerts after the whole rescheduling process will be eligible for a refund until May 13.
