Ocean Alley have announced their 2020 national tour dates have been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with all shows rescheduled for February and March 2021.
Originally due to take place from May 1 to June 5 this year, it wasn’t possible to proceed with the tour amid public health concerns and the Federal Government’s ban of mass gatherings indefinitely.
Now kicking off with two hometown shows at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on February 6 and 7, the tour will then make its way through Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and finish at Melbourne Arena on March 24. Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets and Dulcie will both remain on the tour for all dates as support. By the time these dates come around, it will mark almost three years since Ocean Alley’s last capital city headline run.
The band released a statement on social media, sharing “The reschedule is due to the COVID-19 situation that has developed at home and abroad, and is in line with the restrictions and recommendations put in place by the Australian Government to keep people safe… Thanks for your patience and understanding through what is a difficult time for the wider entertainment industry and everyone around the world. We look forward to finally seeing you again on the road around Australia.”
All tickets that have already been purchased will be valid across the new show dates. Any ticket-holders who are unable to attend the rescheduled dates can safely and securely re-sell their tickets via the Tixel marketplace or obtain a full refund from the point of purchase.
