Based on the advice from Anette Lykke Petri, acting chief medical officer of the Faroe Islands, and Michael Boolsen, police chief, organizers of the James Blunt concert in Tórshavn that was planned for this June, have chosen to postpone the event.
The Tórshavn Sports Complex (Ítróttarhøllin á Hálsi) will now be hosting James Blunt on 26 May 2021.
– The crisis that has affected the entire world means it is ill advised to host big concerts, hence organizers feel it is necessary to postpone the event, organizers announced on Friday.
Although the concert date has been moved, people who’ve already bought tickets need not worry, organizers assure them. All tickets will still be valid in May of next year.
The James Blunt concert was announced on 3 February, and after two weeks, advance tickets were completely sold out.
