Gojira Cancel All 2020 Touring Plans

French metal titans Gojira are looking ahead to 2021, when they can resume touring once more.

Following on from the postponement of their huge U.S. tour with Deftones and Poppy, Gojira have now announced that their 2020 touring plans are completely cancelled.

And, just like Tool did when they scrapped their headline tour, the French metallers have cancelled all headline shows to ensure their fans get refunds in these uncertain times, rather than simply postponing. 

We are sensitive to the fact that the pandemic has caused hardships for many of you, this is why we decided to cancel our headline shows so you all can receive refunds now,” they write.

Read Gojira’s full statement below: 

Since the emergence of the COVID-19 and subsequent pandemic, we unfortunately are forced to cancel Gojira shows, including headline dates, for the year of 2020. We are diligently working on a touring schedule for next year, 2021. Although we are not in the position to confirm any shows for this new period at this time , we do hope to have more news for you all in the coming weeks. 

We are sensitive to the fact that the pandemic has caused hardships for many of you, this is why we decided to cancel our headline shows so you all can receive refunds now. Please contact your original point of purchase for refund information. 

We can not wait to get back out on the road to play for you all, but until then, please stay safe and be kind to one another!” 

Though we’ll have a Gojira-less year on the live front in 2020, it’ll be interesting to know how – or if – this will affect new music. The band were working on material all the way back in May 2019, with drummer Mario Duplantier teasing that work is in progress” and that they were very happy and super proud of it”.
