Deftones, Gojira And Poppy Postpone Summer Tour To 2021
The tour cancellations and postponements are unfortunately continuing to roll in, with Deftones, Gojira and Poppy being the latest artists to have their plans scrapped because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The trio’s planned summer tour across the U.S. is now being moved to 2021, with Deftones announcing in a statement: Due to the current regulations, and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we must reschedule our North American summer tour dates with special guests, Gojira and Poppy.”

The band add that there will also be an update “coming very soon” regarding their European shows, so stay tuned for that, and head here for information on U.S. tour ticket refunds.

While we’re not going to get to see Deftones live for some time, the band are currently finishing up their highly-anticipated ninth album.
Recently, frontman Chino Moreno revealed of its potential release date, “We haven’t really discussed it too deeply other than we plan on it coming out this summer. It’s not looking like we’re going to be able to get out there this summer to support it. So does it make sense to put it out when you can’t support it? Maybe. Maybe not. I don’t know. I think that’s something that we’re going to have to figure out sooner than later. But I think our mindset right now is just finishing it completely and making sure that it’s great. And then taking it from there.”
