John Cale: July tour cancelled

John Cale has been forced to cancel his July tour .... A statement has been posted on his Facebook page. The re-scheduling process is a work-in-progress:

The thing we tried relentlessly to avoid, has now run rampant through our camp.We must sadly postpone our July tour. We tried everything to keep it together but Covid has its own path and its own terms. With the world opening up and things starting to feel normal again, we’re all learning how to navigate touring from a very different perspective. Like whack-a-mole, it just pops up whenever you think its under control. One person catches it; shut down, isolate, regroup, repeat. We’ve tried alternate musicians, re-configurations, backup personnel, only to have it fall apart again and again. We’ve been so eager to get back on the road and play for live audiences again we vowed to just keep trying to make it work. Unfortunately, these last few days have created yet another setback that’s made it clear we need to pause and allow everyone time to re-charge and start up again with the full energy we’ve been preparing to bring to you. We’ve missed you all more than you can imagine. We WILL re-schedule the dates as quickly as possible. Please watch this space for more details. Stay safe everyone.

Update: the UK shows have been rescheduled.
