Coronavirus: Silent Planet tour w/ Currents POSTPONED

Posted by on March 22, 2020

Silent Planet were forced to postpone the last few days of their tour with Currents, Invent, Animate, and Greyhaven, which were mainly four Texas shows and one California date due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

See posts below:


“Our tour merch from the Trilogy Tour is now available on our webstore.
Some of these are going to go quicker than toilet paper at Target… and I suppose it’s possible that these can serve a similar purpose.
But in all seriousness, the recent show delays have left us holding extra merch that we need to sell to pay our bills, so we’d love it if you give our store a look. Thank you! Love y’all”



“We have received word that all 4 Texas shows for the Trilogy Tour are being postponed due to the pandemic. We are rescheduling them to July – new dates and line-up are currently being arranged. There’s a strong possibility that we might add some other southwest gigs while we are at it.
Our show in Springfield, MO tomorrow is still planned to continue – and it will be our last show of this tour until the postponed dates in Texas and California happen this summer.
We would love to keep going, but your safety is of the utmost importance to us, and we trust the judgement and expertise of local officials in the area.
Thank you for your understanding. Continue to wash your hands and have empathy for those who are most at risk. Lovers forever”


“Due to the pandemic, our headline show at The Glass House in Pomona, CA is being moved to June 6th. All tickets purchased will still be valid – and the show is also nearing sell out. It will be the biggest show of our lives, so we are planning an extra-long and special set list for you all on that night.
The lineup will likely change to some degree, but we will make sure that it’s an awesome group of touring bands and well-worth your time.
Thanks for your patience with us – we are still figuring this thing out as it goes.
P.S. Tonight’s show in Atlanta is going on as planned (Callous Daoboys are currently blowing our minds) and the sold out show at The End in Nashville is still scheduled to go on, and so is our show at The Outland in Springfield.
We will keep you posted about any other changes as we find out. We will obviously comply with all local health officials, as well as venues.
Wash your hands, be smart, be safe. Love you!”
