The 21-year-old Enfield native was set to visit the Olympia Theatre and Cyprus Avenue in April 2021 to celebrate the release of his indie-smash sophomore album, 'Zeros'.
Declan McKenna has officially postponed his upcoming UK and European tour dates due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding live shows as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Zeros musician had been set to play a handful of intimate gigs next month before heading on a wider headline tour from March until May.
In terms of how this affects his Irish gigs, McKenna was scheduled to perform on April 15th at Dublin's Olympia Theatre and April 16th at Cyprus Avenue, Cork.
The 'Brazil' singer informed his fans January 14th that some “unavoidable changes” have had to be made in regards to his touring schedule.
“I’ve been waiting to know for sure that these dates are out of the question and now I’m sure you’ll understand that they very much are,” McKenna said in a statement on Twitter.
"I am determined to make sure they go ahead in the (not too distant) future," he added. "I think it is fair at this point not to announce new dates until we can all be sure they will go ahead, but go ahead they will, and tickets already purchased will remain valid."
“In these times your support means so much, so thank you. I’m devastated but even more determined to make the Zeros tour one to remember forever.”
Some unavoidable changes, but better news is on the way,
