American singer and songwriter Halsey has officially cancelled her long-postponed tour, which was originally scheduled to take place in 2020. She announced her decision on Twitter. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the singer said that safety is the priority.
Sharing the tour cancellation news, Hasley said “Safety is the priority. I wish things were different. I love you. Dreaming of seeing your faces again.”
Halsey also attached a note to the tweet, and said: “Despite our absolute best efforts, there is no guarantee I’ll be able to tour the currently scheduled dates. I miss seeing all of you in the crowd every night more than anything, but I need to prioritise your health and safety. That being said, the Manic tour is now officially cancelled. 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.”
“This tour was supposed to be my most unique yet for a number of reasons. I was really looking forward to sharing this chapter of my life with you in the ways I best know how. But for now, I am dreaming of days where we can all be together again. I love you and we will adapt and grow and find new ways to connect despite the circumstances,” she added.
The ‘Without Me’ singer concluded by promising to “find new ways to connect despite the circumstances.”

The Manic tour had got 17 dates in early 2020 across Europe, before the pandemic caused a halt after a March 12 show in Manchester, England. She announced in May that the US dates would be pushed back to the summer of 2021.
Her rescheduled tour was to have begun on June 1 in Washington.
