The ResidentsDog Stab! tour, celebrating the enigmatic group's 50th anniversary, has been canceled. The tour was originally set for 2020, got rescheduled to spring 2021 and then fall 2021, with dates that included a NYC show on September 2 at Le Poisson Rouge.

“What is real? Disappointment is real," write The Residents. "And the Covid pandemic ravaging our culture is real. The Residents are real, too, in a misty, man-behind-the-curtain way. And the joy that an artist or musician brings to their supporters is also real but so is the apprehension one feels when that excitement is replaced by anxiety and dread, anxiety in the form of responsibility to one’s group and those they come in contact with. Disappointment is a bitter pill and The Residents share in the sorrow that goes with the acrid gulp, but artists have resources to deal with frustration and failure — they create! And they are creating… please stay tuned. As someone who lives in land not far from The Residents’ fog shrouded castle on a hill once said, ‘Tomorrow is another day!’ Thanks for your love and support… and GET VACCINATED!!!”
