tour news: Megadeth, Lamb of God, Glassjaw, Bouncing Souls, more

Many have now been rescheduled, too. Head here for more COVID-19 related news and check the Tour Dates category every day for more tour-related news.
BOUNCING SOULS TOUR CANCELED
Earlier this month, Bouncing Souls pushed their Spring tour back to October 2020. Unfortunately, however, the band has since announced that those dates are being canceled, noting the "uncertainty around the opening of the world and even more around live entertainment." They plan to return to the road in 2021.
END OF THE ROAD RESCHEDULED TO 2021
"There is a first time for everything and this year has been a series of firsts, big time," End of the Road organizers write. For the first time in 15 years, the festival is being postponed until September 2-5, 2021. Thus far, Pixies, King Krule, Big Thief, Bright Eyes, Aldous Harding, and Little Simz (from this year's original lineup) have confirmed that they will be on the 2021 lineup as well. More updates regarding a new lineup and other festival details will be announced soon.
MEGADETH AND LAMB OF GOD TOUR POSTPONED
The summer leg of "The Metal Tour of the Year", co-headlined by Megadeth and Lamb of God, with special guests Trivium and In Flames (that was meant to begin on June 12), is being rescheduled to 2021. At the moment, the fall leg of the tour is tentatively still in place, but updates are pending.
This was to be Dave Mustaine's first tour since beating cancer. "We look forward to returning to the stage," he and the rest of Megadeth said in a post on Instagram.

The new dates for Glassjaw's Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence 20th Anniversary tour have been announced. Since the pandemic made it impossible to celebrate the album's proper anniversary this year, the festivities are postponed until the new dates on May 25 and 26, 2021 at Warsaw in Brooklyn, and May 27, 2021 at The Royale in Boston. Additionally, the band will be playing a similar set at the rescheduled 'Chainfest' at FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, CA on May 29, 2021.
NEIGHBOURHOOD WEEKENDER RESCHEDULED
The festival that was meant to take place this summer in Victoria Park (that was initially moved to September) is being rescheduled to 2021 instead.
"We were hopeful a few months ago that we could all be back together this September but following updated government advice surrounding COVID-19, we have now made the decision to move the festival to next year on the same weekend it has been historically," organizers write. The new dates are May 29 and 30, 2021 and the lineup includes Ian Brown, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Gang of Youths, Miles Kane, The Magic Gang, Sundara Karma, Sports Team, The Murder Capital, The Orielles, and many more.
GREEN MAN FEST RESECHEDULED
"These are words we hoped we would never have to write," begins a post by Green Man, announcing that the Welsh fest will not be taking place this year. Rather, the festival will "re-emerge" on August 19-22, 2021. As of now, they are in the process of announcing a new lineup (and a few surprises) for next year's dates. This year's lineup included artists such as Mac DeMarco, Thundercat, Parquet Courts, Shame, Black Midi, (Sandy) Alex G, The Murder Capital, Viagra Boys, Porridge Radio, and many more.
"Our number one priority will always be your safety, as well as the artists, crew, and traders who are a much loved part of our Green Man family," the fest continued. Read the rest of their post below:
