It seems that things do not look good for European fans who are awaiting for the 15 cancelled shows to be rescheduled.
Indeed, on May 24th, the band stated that they were working hard with local promoters to reschedule these shows.
This message was then quoted by the different promoters such as Opus One in Switzerland, who emailed customers to inform them that the rescheduled date would be announced “mid June”.
Later on, Spanish promoter – Doctor Music – posted on their Facebook page that both Spanish shows would take place and that the rescheduled dates would be known during the second week of June – which did not happen.
Today brings a much more worrying news as French promoter – GDP – emailed customers to explain that none of the French shows would be rescheduled in the end, as opposed to what they had stated on May 24th. Below the screen capture of the email in French:
Here’s our translation:

It would not be surprising if UK, Spanish, Italian, Swiss and Dutch promoters were to announce the same in the upcoming days.
We can’t help but hope this is not due to Dolores health but a schedule conflict, as this would imply that her medical issues have gotten worse.
Time will tell if the band will perform or not at the four Italian shows due to take place next week. As a reminder, Dolores doctors have advised her on May 22nd “to immediately cease work for the next 4 weeks” so one may imagine that Dolores is to meet her doctors again in the upcoming days to decide whether she can go back on tour or not.
