Australian heavyweights Parkway Drive have warned fans that their forthcoming shows in the UK and Europe next month may be cancelled as a result of concerns with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The band are set to perform several shows next month as part of the UK and European leg of their Viva The Underdogs tour, which will see support from Hatebreed, Stick To Your Guns, and Venom Prison.
However, due to the impact that coronavirus is having on the world, especially with live music and other large scale events, the band warn that these shows may not go ahead but that they’ll provide confirmation soon.

“To all our European fans,
As you have probably figured out by now, several of our upcoming EU shows in April will be directly affected by the bans most European countries have imposed on larger events.
We are doing our best to assess this rapidly changing situation and our team is working tirelessly behind the scenes to find the best possible solution to this, so we can bring the biggest Parkway Drive shows in our band’s history to your part of the world!
In the meantime, we would like to thank all of you for your messages and comments but ask you to please be patient for a few more days until we can give you more concrete information on how the ‘Viva The Underdogs’ European Revolution 2020 tour will continue.
Be safe and see you soon,
Winston, Luke, Jeff, Ben and Jia”
More details on the outcome of this will be confirmed as it develops.
We have compiled a list of other tours and festivals that have been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which we intend to update as and when we can.
