UK prog rockers Arena have announced that they've rescheduled their tour planned for October this year back to October 2021

In a statement the band say: "It is with great regret that we have had to postpone the 2020 tour until 2021. It became impossible for us to do the tour in October because 90 percent of the countries we were due to play in could not guarantee to us that the audiences, the band and the crew would have the free movement which we would require to ensure that the shows would be fun, secure and most importantly safe.

"You will need to contact the venue/ticket webpage where you bought your ticket to see if it is possible to transfer to next year, or simply get a refund. please do not contact Arena because we do not deal with the ticket sales and will not be able to help you.

"Thank you for your understanding, stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021."
