The event organisers have been in touch to say that: 

Due to the ongoing pandemic and all the concerns that come with touring as an international artist in the current circumstances, we decided to focus Rufus' upcoming UK tour to a shorter period.

We are sorry for all the fans who bought tickets to shows that are cancelled. You can seek a refund from your point of purchase. We hope that you decide to purchase a ticket for one of the remaining shows.
