Lorelle Meets The Obsolete have been forced to cancel the remainder of their North American tour as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
They wrote the following:
We are devastated to announce the rest of our US / CA tour has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 national emergency. We were determined to make it until the end along with our lovely friends from The Underground Youth, but it’s just not possible any more.
At this point we all just want to make it home safe and sound. While Andrea (drums) and Fernando (bass) are trying to fly back to Italy, the rest of us (Lore, Beto & José) are stranded in New York state with a van full of backline and merch which we inevitably have to drive back to Mexico.
With so many things we had to pay in advance for the tour (work visas, flights, van, merch, etc) and all the fees we won’t receive any more we’re in a serious financial black hole. So we have set up a GoFundMe page to stay afloat. We’re true warriors but this is beyond our reach.
Anything helps and if you’re not in a position to donate please spread the word. Much love to all of you. Stay safe.
The shows affected include Chicago, their appearances at South By SouthWest, Denver, the Treefort Festival in Boise, Idaho, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles.
Lorelle Meets The Obsolete’s new EP, Re-Facto, was released last week.
