Published Mar 11, 2020Bikini Kill are the latest band to postpone their upcoming North American tour due to growing concerns about the coronavirus. So far, this includes the band's Pacific Northwest shows this month, including their date in Victoria.
"We take the health and safety of our supporters, crew and opening bands very seriously, and given the situation in Seattle as well as the lack of information about the actual infection rate of the surrounding areas, it doesn't make sense for us to go forward with any of the shows in the region," the band wrote.
The band plan to reschedule the shows and offer refunds.
