Mere weeks before it was set to begin, Delta Goodrem has been forced to reschedule her upcoming Bridge Over Troubled Dreams tour, moving the trek to September and October of this year.
Originally announced in July of 2020, the news of such a tour would undoubtedly have been viewed by some as ambitious, given its announcement in the midst of a global pandemic, and plans to take place in larger venues. However, with COVID cases become manageable, positivity towards the national trek would undoubtedly have risen as it came ever-closer.
Now though, just under a month before the first show was set to take place, Goodrem has announced a rescheduling of the tour due to ongoing concerns related to the safety of everyone involved – from staff and crew to fans..
“Performing live shows and being together in the one room with my fans means so much to me,” Goodrem explained in a statement. “Since we announced the tour, my priority has always been the safety and health of fans, crew and venue staff and we remain committed to ensuring the indoor concert experience is the safest and absolute best it can be.
“We’ve given this a tremendous amount of thought and whilst we are incredibly optimistic of how things are improving, out of an abundance of caution and to be certain of the best experience for fans coming to the shows and all of the staff and crew working on the tour, we’ve made the difficult decision to move the tour to September and October.
“We are greatly encouraged by the improvement in the national touring outlook and whilst I would love to be touring in April, we believe that waiting an extra few months will put our hearts and minds beyond doubt.”
While the route of the tour has been shuffled somewhat, all previously-announced dates remain on the itinerary, with all previously-purchased tickets remaining valid for the new shows. Tickets to all shows are on sale now, with details available below.
