Nine Inch Nails + Deftones Cancel All 2021 Performances
Lest there be any doubt that Vince’s recent predictions of doom n’ gloom for the fall touring season were on the money, Nine Inch Nails and Deftones have both canceled their remaining 2021 tour dates.
Nine Inch Nails say in a statement:
“It is with great regret that we are cancelling all NIN appearances for the remainder of this year.
“When originally planned, these shows were intended to be a cathartic and celebratory return to live music. However, with each passing day it’s becoming more apparent we’re not at that place yet.
“We are sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment and look forward to seeing you again when the time is right.
“Ticket buyers for the September 21 and 23 shows in Cleveland, please refer to your point of purchase for ticket refund information.”
Deftones, meanwhile, have not released a statement at this time — but they did share this message from the organizers of Welcome to Rockville (at which both acts were scheduled to play) on their social media accounts:
“Unfortunately Nine Inch Nails and Deftones have cancelled all their 2021 U.S. performances. We will be announcing their replacements very, very soon. All Thursday single day purchasers with receive an email within 72 hours.”
These are just the latest bands to cancel shows or entire tours due to COVID, including Korn, the Foo Fighters, Buckcherry, Limp Bizkit, Wolfgang Van Halen’s Mammoth WVH, Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, Intronaut, Pop Evil, The Skull, Alesana, and possibly Red Fang.
