UPDATE (7/9/21): Deftones have decided to reschedule their 2021 tour with Gojira for 2022, citing ongoing concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. Tickets for all 2021 shows will be honored at the rescheduled dates and refunds will be available for those who can’t attend. Deftones and Gojira have also added new shows in Las Vegas, Cincinnati and Nashville; tickets for those gigs will go on sale July 16th at 10 a.m. local time via Deftones’ website. An updated tour itinerary is below.
Deftones have announced the new dates for their rescheduled North American tour. The trek, which was initially planned to launch this month, was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 26-date run will now commence in August 2021.
It will be the group’s first full U.S. summer tour since 2017. Both original guests, Gojira and Poppy, remain on the rescheduled tour. It kicks off on August 12th at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota and continues through the Midwest and Canada before heading to the East Coast and south. It culminates with a string of dates on the West Coast, ending in Portland, Oregon at Theatre of the Clouds at Moda Center on September 22nd.
“If you bought tickets for one of the 2020 shows and cannot make the rescheduled show, you will receive an email directly allowing you to request a refund,” the band posted on Facebook, along with announcing their newly rescheduled dates. “For more details, please visit livenation.com/refund. Please hold on to your tickets, as they will be honored for the 2021 dates. Thank you for your patience and understanding.” Additional tickets are available.
In June, the band marked the 20th anniversary of third album White Pony, which will be reissued sometime this year. They are planning to release a remix LP called Black Stallion, which will feature all-new remixes of White Pony tracks, each rendered by a different producer. Deftones have also completed their ninth studio album, the follow-up to 2016’s Gore, which is expected to arrive later this year.
