Halsey Maniac Tour 2021 Cancelled

Halsey has officially called off her long-postponed Manic World Tour.

The 26-year-old pop superstar took to Twitter on Friday (Jan. 22) to announce the cancellation, citing health and safety concerns due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Safety is the priority. I wish things were different,” the singer captioned a screenshot of the announcement. “I love you. Dreaming of seeing your faces again.”

The North American leg of Halsey’s Manic World Tour — in support of her third album of the same title — was initially scheduled to begin in June 2020. The trek was later postponed to the the summer of this year. She did, however, manage to play some European dates last March prior to the shutdown.

Now, with uncertainty about the virus still looming, Halsey has opted to cancel the Manic tour altogether and issue refunds to ticket-buyers.

“Despite our absolute best efforts, there is no guarantee I’ll be able to tour the currently scheduled dates,” the singer wrote in a statement. “I miss seeing all of you in the crowd every night more than anything, but I need to prioritize your health and safety. That being said, the Manic tour is now officially canceled. As much as we wanted to hold out hope that this tour could eventually happen, our priority is now getting your ticket money back to you immediately.”

Since the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020, thousands of concerts, tours and festival around the world have been postponed or canceled in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
