Dexys cancel 2022 tour
By Classic Pop | March 17, 2022
Dexys have announced that they have cancelled the Too Rye Ay As It Should Have Sounded UK tour, which was planned for September and October 2022.
In a statement the band said: “As many people familiar with Dexys will understand, a lot of work and detail was planned for these shows. Unfortunately, Kevin is recovering from a motorbike accident and some health issues that will take some time to recover from. We had tried to keep the tour on track right up to this week, but now it is clear that that there won’t be sufficient time to do the work needed to deliver the show as we had envisaged.
“Dexys feel awful about cancelling and are immensely sorry for the inconvenience caused.
“Apologies first and foremost to the fans who have bought tickets and already made travel arrangements, and to the team, promoters, staff, agents, the ticket vendors, venues and all who have worked so hard.
“We did consider postponing the tour until next year, but we already have plans for 2023, and we promise that when we next tour, and, it won’t be long, we will do plenty of material from Too Rye Ay As It Should Have Sounded.
“Please contact your point of purchase for refunds and more information.”
The tour’s cancellation won’t effect the Too Rye Ay As It Should Have Sounded album release. Expect the remastered LP in September 2022.
