Blackie Lawless and W.A.S.P. have rescheduled their 40th Anniversary UK and Ireland tour for March 2023.
Originally due to hit the UK and Ireland this April, W.A.S.P. have now confirmed the entire European tour has been pushed back a year due to the COVID pandemic.
Blackie Lawless said in a statement: “With enormous frustration I’m forced to announce W.A.S.P. must postpone the 2022 European leg of the 40th Anniversary World Tour.
“This hideous pandemic that’s striped people of their freedom and lives, that’s caused countless artist’s to cancel or postpone shows for years, once again has reared its vicious head to claim us… again! For years we’ve worked really hard to make this tour our celebration, for not only the fans, but for all of us involved. I’m sad, mad, tired and pissed off, but I’ll quote from the great W.E. Henley’s poem Invictus, “My Head is Bloody, But Unbowed” That’s what I want from all of you, to go beyond this place of pain and loss, and NEVER bow to this THING! Our U.S. dates will continue as planned – BUT – WE WILL see you all next year Europe!!!”
