EELS POSTPONE TOUR

Maybe they jinxed it by calling it the "Hurricane Lockdown Tour," but Eels have announced they're postponing their North American tour to 2023. E writes: "We’re sure you’re getting tired of seeing announcements like this. When we planned our 2022 tour 7 months ago we hoped we would be in a more ideal place to carry it out by now. Hopefully things are improving but unfortunately, because of the current state of the pandemic and travel & local restrictions, we’re not quite at a point where we can pull off a tour. Our spring ’22 tour of Europe and the U.S. will have to be postponed to spring ’23. We’d come sooner but the rest of this year has been reserved by artists who previously had to cancel. We’re extremely disappointed we won’t get to see you this year, it was going to be doubly rocktastic after not being able to tour in 2020, so we will rock you triply in 2023." The new NYC show happens June 27, 2023 at Webster Hall. Head here for all dates.
