The band "are absolutely gutted..."

Wolf Alice have decided to postpone their January shows due to COVID concerns.

The omicron variant is currently causing an eye-watering infection rate, swamping the NHS in the process.

As a result, Wolf Alice have decided that large gatherings probably aren't the best idea right now - so they've decided to shelve their winter touring plans.

In a statement, the Mercury winning outfit confirmed that the incoming January shows won't go ahead as planned, but they intend to confirm the rescheduled dates "in the following weeks".

It reads: "We are absolutely gutted to announce that we have decided to postpone our upcoming tour this January. As the Covid pandemic seems to be getting worse and with an overwhelming number of daily cases it feels like a partticularly volatile time to go ahead with such a large tour. People's safety and access to our concerts is of the utmost importance to us and we feel that is something we can't ensure at these large indoor shows."

"We are already working to get rescheduled dates confirmed ASAP and will be making an announcement in the following weeks. All tickets will remain valid for re-scheduled shows and refunds are available if you're unable to attend the new dates. We are sorry to do this but we feel like this is the responsible decision for the current climate of the pandemic."
