EGGS DE-LAID AGAIN!
THE LOVELY EGGS have re-rescheduled their UK tour for next Summer.
The Lancaster DIY psych duo had originally planned the tour for last Summer in support of their acclaimed album I Am Moron. Covid restrictions caused the postponement of the dates until February ’21.
With the virus still lurking, the duo have decided to reschedule the shows for May, June and July. With many of the original shows quickly selling out, they’ve taken to upgrade some of the venues, as well as adding four extra dates.
“The response to I Am Moron blew us away and we couldn’t wait to get on tour and play the songs live”, says Holly from the band. “But unfortunately we’ve not been able to do that this year and with so much uncertainty about the months ahead it seemed the best decision was to move all our live tour dates to Summer 2021. We really want a party with our Eggheads and feel that in current circumstances the summer will give us the best chance of doing that.”
“We just can’t wait to play live again,” says bandmate David. “We’re really looking forward to playing all the new songs off I am Moron. This is a way of life for us.”
The band have also set up an Lovely Eggs WhatsApp Lockdown group for fans, to offer support and a friendly ear to anyone struggling during the current pandemic.
“We’ve just got to try and get through this together” says Holly. “We set up one What’sApp Group and it was oversubscribed so we had to set up another! Our fans have always been there for us and it’s important at this time that we are there for them.”
