Here’s What Metal & Hard Rock Tours Went On Sale (And What Got Cancelled) This Week (May 01st, 2020)


Under normal circumstances, Friday’s aren’t limited to album release dates in the music industry; they’re also the general industry standard for public onsale dates for tours. In a bid to keep you up to date amid the never-ending news crush, you can see an assortment of some of the bigger tours and shows that went on sale to the general public this week.

With the touring industry coming to grips with a seemingly bleak 2020, there wasn’t too much activity these past few days. Interestingly though, as ticket retailers policies have shifted to accommodate the long haul, certain artists have begun cancelling their pending tours rather than postponing them. This decision ensures fans are eligible to get their money back, even if they plans to eventually reschedule the tours. Time will tell whether or not this becomes a trend.

Tickets for the newly announced treks can be found via artist websites and the usual outlets. Should you be unsuccessful that way, you can also try your hand at the secondary market.

Tours announced/rescheduled for the week ending May 03rd, 2020 include:

Rage Against The Machine
