Kodaline announce decision to cancel a series of European tour dates
The band made the announcement on their social media channels on Tuesday evening.
Kodaline have announced the cancellation of all of their upcoming concerts in mainland Europe because of their desire to return to the studio to work on their forthcoming album.
A statement on the band’s Facebook and Twitter pages read: “Hey guys so we’re gutted to announce that we’ve decided it’s the right thing to cancel our mainland European tour dates. As you know, we’ve been working harder than ever on our third album and could not be prouder of what we’ve created so far! But we feel there’s more to come.
“We haven’t stopped writing all summer but we need to head back into the studio over the coming months to work on the ideas we have. We feel that it’s worth the wait and hope you guys do too!
“All of the mainland European tour dates will be rescheduled for 2018.
“Thank you so much for all the support you have given us over the years and sticking by us! We know we have the best fans in the world and we want to make the best record we can for you guys! We can’t wait to play the new tunes for you all!! Love VSJM.”
