Mumford & Sons wanted to get ambitious with their new tour but they may have been a bit too ambitious.
The band tweeted out a statement on Monday letting fans in the UK know that their shows in Liverpool, Cardiff, Sheffield, and Manchester were being postponed.
“As you may know, the Delta Tour is by far the most ambitious show we’ve put together and we have had to free up some space in the schedule to be able to execute it, given some obstacles that have come up in production.”
They added, “The truth is that it is simply not humanly possible to play these particular shows at this time and we are sorry the reality of that only truly landed after we completed Belfast yesterday.”
The cancelled shows will be rescheduled for 2019.
Reaction to the announcement was mixed, with some on Twitter defending the decision to postpone the concerts, while many others were not impressed by the explanation.
