Francis Rossi and A Way With Media regret to announce the forced cancellation of the first fifteen dates that had been rescheduled for the Francis Rossi Talk tour 2021. The dates affected are between June 29 and July 18 [Margate – Stockport]. With the exception of June 30 [Stamford], which has been re-scheduled, these dates are now cancelled, with refunds available with immediate effect.
This is entirely due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, which prevents theatres from operating without social distancing. Despite three reschedules and despite extensive efforts and goodwill on behalf of all parties – the venues themselves, the promoters, Francis Rossi and his team – it is not possible to reschedule these again.
Francis Rossi said, “Of course I am extremely disappointed to have to cancel these dates but there really is no other course of action open at present. I am sure that the fans will understand and I look forward to getting on the road for the remaining dates”.
Venues are extremely congested up to 2022, with reschedules from 2020 and 2021 into over-crowded calendars and so only one date has been successfully rescheduled for later in the year, June 30 [Stamford] is re-scheduled to September 1. To receive your refunds please contact the relevant venue.
Please note: the rest of the tour from the show on 19 July in Wolverhampton through until the last night in Winchester on 5 September are unaffected and will continue as planned.
