The Used Cancel UK and European Tour, Including Slam Dunk Festival

The Used have cancelled their spring UK and European tour, and have also pulled out of Slam Dunk Festival.

Fans were stoked to hear that The Used would be touring the UK and Europe in 2020, as well as an appearance at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. However, the band have announced today that they will be canceling this tour, including Slam Dunk.

“An opportunity has arisen for The Used that we absolutely couldn’t turn down. (Big news update to be revealed ASAP!)” the band said in a statement. “We apologize to all our fans who already made plans to see us and we promise to make it up to you very very soon.”

The Used’s eighth album, Heartwork, is out on April 24, and looks to be a return to form for the band.

“The new album plays on the emotions, the sincerity, and the vulnerability of the first record and In Love and Death, with a little bit of the flair from Lies for the Liars,” frontman Bert McCracken said. “Standing in the streaming circle pit with Kesha and Halsey, the album is just as modern sounding.”

You can still catch Sum 41, Don Broco, NOFX, Billy Talent, While She Sleeps and many other bands at Slam Dunk this year on these dates:


23 Leeds Temple Newsam
24 Hatfield Park
