Archive today announce their rescheduled dates following the forced postponement of their European tour due to founding member Darius Keeler’s cancer diagnosis.
The tour in support of the band’s twelfth studio album Call To Arms & Angels was scheduled to run throughout October and November this year, with the band playing some of the biggest shows of their career to date. The rescheduled dates will run in the same time period next year, with all tickets for the original dates remaining valid.
Darius was diagnosed with colon cancer at the end of July and underwent surgery in London shortly afterwards, the surgery was a complete success and the prognosis for a full recovery is extremely good.
Darius has posted a video message on Facebook thanking the band’s fans for their support, saying “I’m totally overwhelmed by how many people sent their love and support for me, it’s amazing and you can’t believe how much it means to have that support, thank you all so much. We’re going come back so strong for this tour, stay positive with me and let’s smash it next year!”
ARCHIVE – Call To Arms & Angels European Tour Rescheduled
Archive have announced the forced rescheduling of their European tour later this year after founding member Darius Keeler was diagnosed with cancer.
The tour in support of the band’s twelfth studio album Call To Arms & Angels was scheduled to run throughout October and November with the band playing some of the biggest shows of their career to date.
Darius was diagnosed with colon cancer at the end of last month and underwent surgery in London shortly after diagnosis, the surgery was successful and the prognosis for a full recovery is extremely good.
It was initially hoped that Darius would be recovered in time for the tour to go ahead as originally planned, but on the advice of his surgeon the tour has now had to be rescheduled to allow Darius time to fully recuperate.
Speaking about the diagnosis and the tour rescheduling Darius said „It’s been such an emotional rollercoaster since finding out I have cancer, especially after all of the struggles we had making Call To Arms & Angels during Covid. I was looking forward to this tour more than any tour we’ve ever done after not being able to play live for so long. I’m absolutely devastated to postpone and I can only apologise to the fans for the disappointment caused. I’m going to be focusing on getting myself fully fit in the next few months, and come back next year for the most epic Archive tour ever! I miss everyone in the Archive family and send you all my love, we’ll see you all in 2023!”
Tickets for the original shows remain valid for the rescheduled dates but fans can also get refunds at point of purchase. The rescheduled dates will be in the same October / November timeframe in 2023 and full details will be announced early next month once the rescheduling has been finalised.
