Reb Fountain Announces New Dates For 'IRIS' Release Tour

Annabel Kean / Thursday 21st October, 2021 12:32PM

On the one hand, it's a bit of a kick in the shins every time a tour has to be postponed because of Covid, but on the other hand, it warms my heart to see the music industry putting public health and wellbeing first by pushing shows back to safer dates. Having released her new album IRIS at the start of the month, Reb Fountain's celebratory nationwide tour was set to kick off next Friday, but today we can share the brand new, safety first, summer reschedule. In the words of Fountain herself, "I LOVE live music; performing, the mosh pits, the eclectic venues, the camaraderie, the transformative experience WE share when we come together" - all wonderful things that can be your sweet reality come February 2022, when the award-winning folk-punk performer takes her band and exciting new songs on the road, hitting some of the country's most beautiful venues in the height of summer.

Tickets already purchased are still fully valid, and a few bonus seats have opened up too for those who missed out the first time around. Catch up on the new dates below, and read what Reb had to say about the postponement here...

"We’re in this together folks.

I LOVE live music; performing, the mosh pits, the eclectic venues, the camaraderie, the transformative experience WE share when we come together. The band and I can’t wait to bring IRIS to you all – in order to do that, large events have to be viable and your safety and wellbeing has got to be at the fore, so we’re moving our album release tour to February 2022.

All tickets will remain valid and the good news is further seats have opened up so don’t despair it’s not sold out quite yet. I love you and miss you and am so looking forward to seeing you there.

I don’t want you to miss out on live entertainment. But more importantly, I want you and your loved ones to live. You will most likely need to be vaccinated to be part of the audience for these shows so please for the sake of yourselves and one another #vaxforlive.
