Unfortunately for fans, Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky, GENERAL HOSPITAL) has had to announce the cancellation of his band’s European tour. “Friends, please read our full statement,” he posted to Instagram. “All tickets will be automatically refunded. Please contact your point of purchase with any queries. We love you guys!”
After dates for Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s Ultraviolet Empire Tour had already been rescheduled multiple times, the shows in the United Kingdom and Ireland that were most recently scheduled for May 2022 have now had to be scrapped entirely. I’m sad to announce the cancellation of our upcoming UK and Ireland tour,” the statement read. “The reasons for this are varied.
“One is health-related,” it continued. “Having recently endured a very intense case of COVID, it has become apparent that it will take months to fully recover. When we do finally make it back to the UK and Ireland, we’re going to be at our best, and God willing, fully recovered. Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets. We love you and can’t wait to make it back and see you all face to face. Much Love!”
Jackson signed the statement along with his bandmates, brother Richard Jackson, who plays drums and percussion, and Moon, who plays bass and Moog synthesizer. The GH alum formed the band back in 2003 with his brother, and over the years, there have been a few different third members to their alt-rock trio, with Moon the current bassist.
Although it wasn’t specified which of the band members contracted COVID, we’re glad to hear that they’re all doing better, and look forward to them being in top form again so that they can redo their European tour. And recording some new music would be nice, too!
