AWOLNATION scraps upcoming US tour due to COVID-19

AWOLNATION‘s upcoming Lightning Riders U.S tour has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The outing, which also included Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness on the bill, was set to kick off May 22 in Asbury Park, New Jersey.

“It’s of course an extremely hard call to make, but the safety of our fans, crew, and all communities is our priority above all else,” the “Sail” rockers write in a statement.

The tour had been timed to support AWOLNATION’s upcoming album, Angel Miners & the Lightning Riders, which is due out April 24.

“We can’t wait to get back on the road again and experience songs from the upcoming new album with you live for the first time, and our team is working hard on new tour dates,” the band says. “As always, thank you for listening — we love you. Stay well and let’s stay connected until we can meet again.”

Refunds will be available at point of purchase. Visit for more info.

Meanwhile, frontman Aaron Bruno has been hosting daily live streams on the AWOLNATION Instagram. Monday’s stream featured grandson, while Finneas will guest on Wednesday.
