UK tour rescheduled to April 2022

Unfortunately, with continuing concerns around the Coronavirus pandemic and whether venues will be allowed to open at full capacity, and after discussion with our promoters, we have made the decision to reschedule our UK tour to April 2022.

Steve Overland: "It's not a decision we've taken lightly but we really feel it's the best option. We have no idea if the venues will be allowed to open in April. So, with the well-being of our fans and crew at the forefront of our minds we have discussed with our management and promoters and we're happy to say that they are all in agreement about moving the tour back 12 months."

The rescheduled tour dates are as follows:

01 April 2022: COTTINGHAM - The Civic Hall - NEW DATE
02 April 2022: WAKEFIELD - Warehouse23
07 April 2022: LONDON - Islington Assembly Hall
08 April 2022: NUNEATON - Queens Hall
09 April 2022: NORWICH - The Waterfront - NEW DATE
15 April 2022: BOURNEMOUTH - Madding Crowd
16 April 2022: SWANSEA - Patti Pavilion
17 April 2022: NANTWICH - Civic Hall
22 April 2022: NEWCASTLE - University Student Union
23 April 2022: GLASGOW - Garage G2
29 April 2022: READING - Sub 89
30 April 2022: NOTTINGHAM - Rescue Rooms

Laurence Jones will sadly not now be part of the tour and we will announce Special Guests in due course.

All tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates and we would would ask that wherever possible you hold on to your tickets as this will help the promoters and venues in these tough times to know that they have a reason to remain open.

Tickets for Cottingham and Norwich will be on sale from 9am on Friday 29 January 2021.

Unfortunately the original venue in Hull has fallen victim to the pandemic and has closed. Despite extensive communication with the promoter there we are unable to secure a replacement. The show in Cottingham will replace this show. Existing tickets, however, are NOT valid and new tickets will need to be purchased for the Cottingham show.

Everyone who purchased a ticket for the Hull show should have received a full refund. If you have not, please email attaching a copy of your purchase email.

For details of all our upcoming shows and booking information please see the FM Tour Dates page.
