All existing tickets will remain valid for new dates and in the case of a required refund please visit point of purchase.
The Stockholm Grona Lund show will be rescheduled for the summer of 2020 – date TBC at this time.

Unfortunately due to the nature of the events, the Netherlands, Mexico & Colombia dates will not be able to be rescheduled.
Biff “As everyone knows now we are going to have to reschedule some of the shows because I need an operation on my heart which should be happening next week. There is nothing more I can say really, I am just sorry for causing all the disappointment to peoples plans for coming to see us. I know people are flying from all over the World to see the shows but there is nothing I can do so please wish me luck and send me some good vibes. We have to look positive on this and I will coming back as strong as before hopefully”

I hope that Biff will recover quickly and be fit. More, I'm sure we'll see you in London on March 28, 2020. When I was sick and had chemotherapy in 2010, I listened to Heavy Metal Thunder The Movie all the time. Similarly, three years ago, before aortic valve surgery (regurgitation), Never Surrender and Stand up and fight! Such positive music heals. Biff, I keep my fingers crossed and I only address two words to you: Never Surrender! I wish you much health and strength from Warsaw - Michał
