With touring suddenly stopping for many bands, it means a lot of people in the music industry are struggling. This isn’t just the bands; this includes tour managers, sound and lighting technicians and drivers, among others. With no certainty for when bands can get back on the road as the pandemic continues, a selection of these underground acts got together to form ‘THE TOURS THAT NEVER WERE‘.
‘The Tours That Never Were’ is a new fundraiser for all these people in the industry. They have released a collection of merchandise to represent the tours around the world that had to be cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Shirts, bags and posters are on sale to represent a collection of bands who were affected by the change. This includes the likes of Black Peaks, Cultdreams, Employed To Serve, Holding Absence, Lizzy Farrall and Sugar Horse.
