Echo & The Bunnymen have rescheduled their forthcoming 20-date UK and Ireland tour for spring 2022.
The tour, originally set to take place in May and June 2021, has been postponed with fans advised to hold onto their tickets as they will remain valid for the rescheduled dates.
The run of shows will celebrate the songs that have brought the Liverpool rock group 20 Top 20 hits, including ‘The Killing Moon’, ‘The Back of Love’, ‘Never Stop’, ‘Seven Seas’ and ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’, and nine Top 20 albums since they formed in 1978.
Frontman Ian McCulloch said: “I can’t wait to be out there with the band on all those stages in all those towns and cities, doing what I love most, playing our songs to our brilliant fans and, hopefully, making all our lives a little bit happier along the way”.
