Here's a roundup of recent tour news. Check the Tour Dates category for more.


Ezra Furman have postponed tour dates this week -- Providence, Cambridge, NYC (Webster Hall on 9/21), and Dover, DE -- as three people in their touring party tested positive for Covid and "there is no way we can safely or functionally continue the tour." Erza says they are working on rescheduling the shows as soon as they can, so "please hold on to your tickets and good music will triumph."


North America will have to wait just a little longer for Crowded House's ‘Dreamers Are Waiting‘ tour -- they've rescheduled it for May, 2023.


Metallica have announced their third annual benefit concert and auction for their non-profit All Within My Hands foundation, which supports workforce education and the fight against hunger. This year's edition happens at Los Angeles' Microsoft Theater on December 16.


Arlo Parks has canceled part of her current North American tour -- including shows in Boston, Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Denver, and Salt Lake City -- to focus on her "debilitating" mental health. “I’ve been on the road on and off for the last 18 months, filling every spare second in between and working myself to the bone,” Parks wrote. “It was exciting and I was eager to grind and show everyone what I was capable of, how grateful I was to be where I am today. The people around me started to get worried but I was anxious to deliver and afraid to disappoint my fans and myself. I pushed myself unhealthily, further and harder than I should’ve. I find myself now in a very dark place, exhausted and dangerously low — it’s painful to admit that my mental health has deteriorated to a debilitating place, that I’m not okay, that I’m a human being with limits.” The tour is set to resume September 26 in Portland. All dates are here.


Rapper/singer/producer HAWA has announced her debut album, HADJA BANGOURA, is coming on November 4 via 4AD. She has a handful of European dates coming up in the fall, plus a one-off NYC show in October.
