Another tour scheduled for 2021 is now moved to 2022. This time it’s the Drowning Pool, Ill Nino, (hed) pe and Evolution Empire race that was supposed to start this week and will now enter the new year.
The headliners of the Drowning Pool tour posted a post on their social media revealing the news, also explaining that the rescheduled dates will likely be in March and April of next year.
The full statement, which was presented about all of the bands participating in the “Brothers in Arms” tour, can be read below.
It was an incredibly difficult decision to make – but we will be announcing spring routing early next weekâ¦ We can’t wait to see everyone on the road and be able to get out properly !!
We regret to announce that the Brothers in Arms tour is postponed.
The escalating costs, logistics, and risk of moving a multi-group tour like Drowning Pool, Ill Nino, (hed) pe and Evolution Empire from city to city while respecting the ever-changing local mandates and recommendations unfortunately pose too much trouble to be sure we can complete the entire tour as planned.
The tour is currently rescheduled for March / April 2022, and full details will be announced in the coming days. Please keep your tickets as they will be good for the new tour dates.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and look forward to seeing you all on the road when we can celebrate 20 years of music and friendship in the safest way possible.

Although the tours have returned to some extent, there have been a lot of challenges. Rockers who have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent months include Corey Taylor (Slipknot), Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden), Chad Gray (Mudvayne), Sean Killian (Vio-Lence), Sebastian Bach (ex-Skid) Row), Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley (KISS), Jonathan Davis and Munky (Korn), and members of Tesla and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Metal singer Eric Wagner died last month after being hospitalized with COVID pneumonia.
