The Alarm have announced the postponement of their UK and U.S. shows during March and April.
The band’s frontman, Mike Peters, writes:
Here at thealarm.com we have been closely monitoring the news programs and announcements from official sources to understand how the Global Pandemic will affect our daily lives, including the upcoming Mike Peters & The Alarm shows scheduled for the UK and USA during March and April 2020.
These are unprecedented times for all of us, and while we try our best to make decisions that are in the interest of fans, musicians and humankind, the most recent news from the British Prime Minister and the President of the United States (regarding the decision to restrict and ban travel within and from the UK as well as limiting social gathering), immediately impacts on all the shows that we have planned through March and April including our four UK dates in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London and the three events during USA Gathering Week in Boston, Los Angeles and New York. These shows will all now be rescheduled.
Please rest assured that all of the concerts will take place at some point in the near future, and all current tickets, passes and experiences purchased will be honoured as soon as we have new dates to share.
At present, the plan is to try and reschedule the USA shows for June 2020 to coincide with the new date for Record Store Day of June 20th. We are also working with our UK Music Agency to reschedule the British dates for November 2020.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your understanding and cooperation at this unprecedented time. We will announce the new re-scheduled dates as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we will do everything we can to keep you updated. Please stay in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org. We are only an email away.
I am absolutely certain that we will get through this together. The disruption for all our peoples is considerable right now as the planet’s leaders are doing all they can to minimise the impact on our future way of life. We at thealarm.com are following the specific directions as and when they are released.
My personal aim is to make sure that all our events happen as soon as we are able, so that we can get back to normal once the situation is under control.
Let’s stay safe and be positive together.
All things must pass and remember that tomorrow is another day.
Music will keep us strong…
March 16th 2020
