Latest Wire news

Touring24 Nov, 2020

2020 has thrown our industry into disarray and Wire are no exception. We don’t think it will come as a surprise to anyone that there is no way to make work dates in Europe we previously rescheduled from May 2020 to March 2021 — and those originally planned for North America in October 2020, which we tried to reschedule to May 2021. So we have decided to refund everyone who bought tickets rather than reschedule them yet again with no real certainty we can fulfil the obligations. This will enable us to make a proper plan for 2022 and configure a concept with a schedule we can fulfil at a time when it is as safe for us to tour as it is for you to come and see us without anyone having to social distance!

The European shows should get automatically refunded starting from 10a.m. on Tuesday 24 November. For North American shows, refunds will be available upon request at the point of purchase from Friday 20 November.

Be in no doubt that Wire will be back — and until then, we will all be keeping safe and hope you will be too!
