Turkuaz have announced they will not be performing many of their previously announced shows this fall citing “unforeseen cancelations, health & safety risks, & logistical travel concerns” as the primary causes. The band called the decision extremely difficult. Tickets to the canceled shows have been refunded at the point of purchase.
Though they have canceled most of the shows for their tour, which were primed to run through August of 2022, they have kept a handful of dates alive. They wrote in the statement that, “the dates remaining are a result of examining what’s feasible & keeps the many moving pieces in a touring operation of our size safe & secure.”
Additionally, they shared that their Dec. 3 show in Philadelphia has been rescheduled to Dec. 29 at the new Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia.
Read their full statement below:
To Our Fans, We have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel much of our upcoming Fall Tour.
While the dates we set out on this past August were primed to be an exciting return, we encountered many challenges in touring through these difficult times. Between unforeseen cancelations, health & safety risks, & logistical travel concerns, touring in this ever-changing reality has forced us to take a hard look at our ability to go back out on tour while we’re still facing these same issues and more, including continued public health concerns.
Touring is our life and performing live for our fans is the best part of our job. This makes the realities we’re facing disappointing, but unfortunately necessary. The dates remaining are a result of examining what’s feasible & keeps the many moving pieces in a touring operation of our size safe & secure. To the friends & fans in the cities that we must cancel, please know that we WILL be back! It’s just going to be a bit longer than we’d hoped for. Refunds for all tickets purchased to all canceled dates will be issued from the original point of purchase.
Below is a list of tour dates that are still occurring. 12/3 in Philadelphia has been rescheduled to 12/29 at Brooklyn Bowl. Previously purchased tickets will be honored. All Remain In Light performances will continue as planned. We’re grateful to our fans for understanding this decision.
Thank you for your continued support.
