Stormzy has announced that his upcoming tour has now been rescheduled to take place across November and December due to COVID-19-related postponements.

Having announced the Australian leg of his Heavy Is the Head world tour back in November, fans of Stormzy were undoubtedly eager to catch the grime sensation when he visited Australia this May, performing cuts from his latest album of the same name.

Unfortunately, with COVID-19 causing the cancellation and postponement of countless events across Australia and the rest of the world, it’s been revealed that Stormzy’s upcoming tour has also been affected, with rescheduled dates being announced earlier today.

“I was seriously looking forward to bringing the #H.I.T.H World Tour to Australia and New Zealand and playing some epic sold-out shows however, due to the evolving health and travel concerns surrounding the Coronavirus, I’m regrettably having to reschedule this leg of the tour,” Stormzy explained in a statement.

“The good news is we were able to reschedule the dates for this coming November and December, so I’ll be seeing you before the end of the year,” he added. “Stay safe and I can’t wait to see you all soon.”

Now set to take place across November and December, the tour’s venues have remained the same, though the shows themselves have been shuffled a little bit. Originally slated to begin in Perth before heading east, Stormzy will now kick things off in Sydney, before visiting Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and wrapping things up in Perth on December 2nd.

Tickets to these new dates are on sale now via Handsome Tours, while all previously-purchased tickets remain valid for later in the year. If you’re unable to attend these rescheduled shows, be sure to contact your point of purchase prior to 11.59pm on April 3rd to obtain a refund.
