Bikini Kill Postpone Part of Tour Dates Due to Coronavirus

on March 11, 2020, 6:30pm

Update – April 2nd: Bikini Kill have rescheduled their reunion tour for the fall.

Bikini Kill have postponed a portion of their upcoming reunion tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The riot girrrl icons announced on Facebook on Wednesday that all of their Northwest shows have been postponed. Originally scheduled to take place this month, the affected concerts include Seattle, Portland, and Victoria, British Columbia. The band’s hometown gig in Olympia, Washington will also need to be rescheduled to a later date.

“Bikini Kill regrets to announce that we’re postponing our NW tour,” wrote the punk veterans. “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 to us to go forward with any of the shows in the region.”


“We’re extremely disappointed, and look forward to rescheduling the dates as soon as we can,” they add. “Refunds will be offered for all the shows.” Bikini Kill are expected to resume touring in May.

The Northwest region of North America has been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus. As of Wednesday, there have been 30 deaths and at least 367 confirmed cases in the state of Washington.

Bikini Kill join an unfortunately long and ever growing list of artists and festivals affected by COVID-19. Coachella has been pushed back from April to October; South By Southwest was called off just days before its launch; and Pearl Jam were forced to postpone a portion of their highly anticipated Gigaton tour.
