Jenny Lewis Cancels Tour Dates Over COVID-19 Concerns
Jenny Lewis has cancelled her scheduled US tour dates due to “the ongoing COVID situation”.
A message posted on the singer’s Twitter page reads, “Out of an abundance of caution due to the ongoing COVID situation, Jenny Lewis will not perform at any indoor venues for the remainder of the year. Therefore, it’s with great disappointment that the below indoor shows have been cancelled…. Check with your point of purchase for refund information.
“Jenny and her band will continue forward with the outdoor festival dates: Live On The Green, XPoNential Festival, Sound On Sounds Music & Arts Festival, Wildwood Revival and Moonstone Festival.”
Lewis released her latest album On The Line in 2019, marking her fourth solo LP since Rilo Kiley officially disbanded in 2011. She has released a series of singles since On The Line, including four lockdown collaborations with rapper Serengeti shared over the past two years; Unblu, Vroom Vroom, Idiot and GLTR.
Lewis’ latest single was released in November last year, titled Puppy And A Truck, which she later performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. In other Lewis news, it has been announced that the Bright Eyes album which features dialogue from Lewis – 2002’s Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil, Keep Your Ear To The Ground – is to feature in the latest round of reissues from Conor Oberst’s band.
In March last year, Lewis reunited with former Rilo Kiley bandmate Blake Sennett for the first time in six years to take part in a charity livestream. Prior to that, they’d only linked up one other time at Coachella in 2015, to perform the song Portions For Foxes.
