AFI Reschedule 2022 ‘Bodies’ Tour Dates to Fall
UPDATE: AFI have, for the most part, rescheduled their "Bodies" tour to the fall of 2022. In a statement, the band wrote: "Given the current challenges that we are still facing at this stage of the pandemic, we have come to the very difficult decision to postpone The Bodies Tour to the fall of 2022. With Covid cases still on the rise, we fear that we will not be able to complete the tour the way it is currently scheduled, and moving it will hopefully give us a better chance to see it through to its entirety."
They added, "Because our Los Angeles shows do not require us to travel, these 2 dates will still be taking place in March. We will also be adding a new show in Anaheim, CA on 10/25 and Ventura, CA on 11/25 to the itinerary. We thank you for your understanding, and we hope you hold onto your tickets for the fall. Please contact your point of purchase if you have any questions." See all of the newly rescheduled dates listed below.
AFI fans will have a little longer to wait until the band tours the U.S. again, but you can now start to plan as the group has announced the first leg of the "Bodies" tour kicking off in February 2022.
The band is hitting the road with Cold Cave opening dates on the upcoming run. The tour is set to launch Feb. 11 in San Diego, wrapping just a few miles up the coast in Los Angeles on March 25 after traversing the country. All dates, venues and cities can be seen listed below.
Fans can currently RSVP for the tour and get pre-sale information for each date by visiting the band's website. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday (June 25) at 10AM local time, though the band's Despair Faction fan club will have access to a pre-sale starting Wednesday (June 23) and there will be local pre-sales on Thursday (June 24).
The tour comes in support of AFI's newly released album, Bodies, which is currently available here. The band has steadily offered previews of the album throughout 2021, with the songs "Twisted Tongues," "Escape From Los Angeles," "Looking Tragic," "Begging for Trouble," "Dulceria," "Far Too Near" and "Tied to a Tree" all arriving prior to the record's June 11 release.
