Clairo becomes the latest in a host of artists to cancel shows in the last week due to a global rise in COVID cases.
Yesterday (December 19), LCD Soundsystem cancelled the remainder of their 20-show run at Brooklyn Steel, while Enter Shikari also postponed the rest of their 2021 tour dates and some 2022 shows, saying that “the safety of our crew and our audience will always come first”.
As it stands, Clairo is still set to head out on a 2022 North American tour, which will kick off in February and feature Arlo Parks as support.
For both the US and UK/EU tour, Clairo has partnered with SafeTour and Calling All Crows for her 2022 live dates “to provide a safe and harassment-free concert experience”.
A representative from Calling All Crows will join Clairo’s touring team to respond to requests for support through a text helpline and provide “proactive canvassing of each concert, [as well as] messaging and educational support so that attendees can take part in making these shows and their own communities safer”.
