New Order and Pet Shop Boys have announced that they will be delaying their joint Unity tour by a calendar year, now kicking it off in September 2021.

The announcement came via Instagram, with New Order writing: “New Order and Pet Shop Boys unfortunately have to announce that our much-anticipated Unity Tour of North America, scheduled to start September 2020, will be moving to next year. We are rescheduling the tour to commence September 2021 and will announce the new dates shortly.”

The band also noted that “tickets for the original dates will remain valid for the new dates but refunds will be available if required in due course. Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.”

The Unity tour joins numerous others to be cancelled or postponed, most recently Slipknot’s 2020 touring plans were cancelled due to the pandemic.
