Lucy Dacus postpones UK and Ireland shows after testing positive for COVID-19

Lucy Dacus has postponed a number of her upcoming UK and Ireland tour dates after testing positive for COVID-19.

The Virginia artist had been due to kick off her UK and European tour in support of her 2021 album ‘Home Video’ tomorrow (March 18) with the first of two shows in Leeds.

However, those gigs, as well as her upcoming dates in Glasgow, Dublin and Manchester, have now been postponed after Dacus tested positive for COVID just before leaving the US for her tour.

“She is doing well,” a statement that was issued on Dacus’ social media channels last night (March 16) reads. “However, out of an abundance of caution and care for the rest of her band, crew and fans, we are postponing the first few shows of the tour.”
