Peter Gabriel Cancels Upcoming Show Due To ‘Problems Beyond His Control’

In a recent statement on his website and social media accounts, Peter Gabriel announced the cancellation of his upcoming show at the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on June 20.

The statement explained the singer’s regret:

“Despite our best efforts, it is with real regret that Peter has been forced to cancel his show at the Nottingham, Motorpoint Arena on Tuesday, June 20, 2023, due to logistical problems beyond our control. We are very sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience that this causes.”

It further said:

“If you have a ticket for the show in Nottingham, you should have been notified of the cancellation by your ticket provider (Ticketmaster or the venue) already or will be very soon.

You will receive a full refund automatically, but you will also be provided with a special link in case you wanted to book at ticket for either the show at Birmingham Utilita Arena on Saturday, June 17, Glasgow OVO Hydro on Thursday, June 22, or Manchester AO Arena on Friday, June 23, 2023.”

There will also be different options for the ones who can’t buy tickets for alternative gigs:

“In recognition of the inconvenience caused, anyone who does choose to purchase one of the alternative shows mentioned above will also be able to access Peter Gabriel’s soundcheck for that show and will also receive a complimentary item of ‘i/o’ merchandise.

Further details on this will be communicated directly via Ticketmaster or the venue when they write to you, and please make sure you use the purchase link they provide you. Again, we are really sorry about this situation, and we thank you in advance for your understanding.”

Gabriel’s ongoing tour supports his forthcoming album ‘i/o,’ which will arrive in late 2023. As for now, the rocker released six singles from the record, and it will be his first original material since 2002’s ‘Up.’

The tour kicked off in Krakow, Poland, on May 18 and continued with shows in Milan, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Hamburg, and other cities. The singer will be on the road throughout June and then back in September for more dates in North America.
