TODD MCKENNEY SINGS PETER ALLEN NSW TOUR CANCELLED DUE TO COVID

Posted: 22nd July, 2021

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we have had to issue the below statement in regards to our upcoming tour of NSW.

Firstly, I'd like to thank you all for your ongoing support of my live shows. It means the world to me.

I'm very sorry to tell you that due to the current COVID crisis I've had to make the heart breaking decision to cancel my proposed tour. I'm so disappointed as I'm sure you are too. My band and I had a great show planned (and already rehearsed) for you!

In an ideal world I would have loved to be in a position to move the dates but due to other work commitments, already contracted and in place, including Cinderella The Musical and some more television shows, the earliest I could look at new dates would be September 2022 and I didn't think it was fair to hang on to your hard earned dollars for such a long time.

I will certainly be back on stage entertaining you as soon as things settle down and become more stable for our entertainment industry.

The most important thing is that you all stay safe and healthy during these crazy times.

In the meantime, we filmed a small part of our rehearsals and posted it on my Facebook page to say 'thank you Victorians' when our Melbourne concerts in June were postponed due to COVID. It's just a bit of fun so we will now post it again to the rest of Australia to say 'thank you' to you too!

With kindness,
Todd McKenney

Your ticketing agency will contact you in regards to your tickets.
