Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds are the latest musical act to pull a large number of tour dates due to the ongoing pandemic.

The Australian musician and his band were due to play Dublin's 3Arena on May 8th and 9th in support of their new album 'Ghosteen', but they have now postponed their entire UK and European tour.

They plan to reschedule the dates and all tickets will remain valid for the new dates, whenever they are announced.

“While hugely disappointing, this feels the best course of action to keep you all as safe as possible,”their statement read. “We are working hard to finalise when the rescheduled shows will take place, and will share detailed information with you as soon as we have it. All existing tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled shows.”
