Sam Roberts Band Cancel Canadian Fall Tour
"Knowing that we are taking away a night's work from anyone in the live music business at this time makes this decision all the more difficult"
Published Sep 20, 2021Amid the fourth wave of the pandemic in Canada, Sam Roberts Band have made the call to cancel their upcoming tour, which would have seen the band traversing the country this November and December.
The band announced the cancellation via their social platforms, writing, "In the long history of our band (family), this is far and away the hardest decision we've ever had to make and something we hoped never to have to do."
To the local crews and the venue staff across the country, knowing that we are taking away a night's work from anyone in the live music business at this time makes this decision all the more difficult — please accept our love and thanks and here's hoping that stages light up across Canada very, very soon.
The tour would have seen Sam Roberts Band go on to perform in Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Montreal later this year. The Monowhales were enlisted to support each night on the trek.
The group have confirmed that all tickets will be eligible for automatic refunds, with additional ticketing information provided by Live Nation.
