Europe Tour Cancelled

Dear Fans,

We are very disappointed to announce the cancellation of our upcoming European tour. Sharon is doing well, but must undergo a medical procedure related to her cancer and the recovery time will conflict with these European dates. It's been too long since we visited our European fans and we will try to get back to Europe as soon as possible!

Sharon will appear at all other shows and events before and after this tour, including her appearance at the Nuart Theater in LA and our show in Mammoth, CA this weekend.

Refunds for shows in London and Amsterdam are available at point of purchase. 

The following dates have been cancelled:

8/18 – Paredes De Coura, Portugal - Paredes De Coura Festival

8/20 – Hasselt, Belgium – Pukkelpop

8/21 – Ottery St. Mary – Beautiful Days Festival

8/23 – London, UK – Brooklyn Bowl London

8/24 – London, UK – Ronnie Scott’s

8/26 – Carleville-Mezieres, France – Cabaret Vert

8/27 – Paris, France – Rock En Seine

8/28 – Amsterdam, Netherlands – Amsterdamse Bostheater

All scheduled dates in the United States will proceed as scheduled.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you all soon!

Love,
Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
