“UK/EUROPEAN TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT:
It is with an extremely heavy heart that I announce I am forced to cancel my UK/European tour due to the governmental restrictions being imposed by various countries in reaction to the corona virus outbreak. My team and I have monitored this situation closely for the past several weeks hoping for a positive turnaround. Unfortunately, current developments have rendered such a turnaround impossible. To say I am deeply saddened by this turn of events would be an understatement. I was so looking forward to seeing all of you.
For now, all I can say is that I am already looking into every possibility for rescheduling. My team is also working with the promoters in each country to honor the tickets that have been purchased in any city and venue that will allow it for the rescheduled shows. For the cities where this is not possible, refunds will be issued.
Again, I am so sorry. My most heartfelt thanks to all of you who bought tickets. I look forward to seeing all of you as soon as possible. Please continue to monitor my website and my social media pages for updates. Until then, I wish all of you safety and good health as we navigate this madness together with our families and friends.

We are working around the clock to set the rescheduled dates and will release that information as soon as possible. Standby for more info.
