The question on everyone’s lips is will Brockhampton tour again? When the hip-hop “boy band” Brockhampton announced they would be going on an indefinite hiatus their fans were left in shock. This surprise announcement came just a few days before the group’s European tour was set to kick off in London. In a post on the band’s Twitter account, group leader Kevin Abstract explained that the decision was made “effective immediately.” The message went on to say that all remaining tour dates, including Brockhampton’s Coachella performance and their upcoming show at the O2 Academy Brixton in London, would be canceled.
While it is unclear what has led to the sudden hiatus, many fans speculate that it may have something to do with the recent departure of the group’s founding member Ameer Vann. It remains to be seen whether the hiatus is temporary or permanent, but for now, fans will have to enjoy Its music from afar.
Will Brockhampton Tour Again?
Brockhampton is an American hip-hop boy band that was formed in San Marcos, Texas in 2015. The group is composed of Kevin Abstract, Matt Champion, Romil Hemnani, Bearface, Joba, Merlyn Wood, and Dom McLennon. The group has released three studio albums, Saturation (2017), Saturation II (2017), and Saturation III (2018). They have also released an EP, collab ep (2016), and a mixtape, All-American Trash (2016).
The group announced their indefinite hiatus on January 1st, 2019 after their final performances, tour dates were never publicly announced for their hiatus. All of a sudden, postponed and canceled tour dates began to be displayed on Ticketmaster for their “Love Your Parents” Tour which was set to happen in the United States and Canada throughout October and November.
Brockhampton’s upcoming performances page showed four performances left: two at the O2 Academy Brixton in London on September 15th and 16th, one at the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam on September 18th, and one at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels on September 19th. As of today, there are no other forthcoming tour dates scheduled for Brockhampton. It is unclear if any more will be announced or if these four shows will be rescheduled due to the current global situation with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Group leader posted a statement to Twitter on January 3rd, 2019 officially announcing Brockhampton’s indefinite hiatus. He wrote “new Brockhampton album soon but right now we need to take some time off… Will be back before you know it.” This was followed by many members of the group tweeting out “I’m not in Brockhampton,” leading fans to believe that this might not be a temporary leave but the end of the group. VIP packages that included a meet-and-greet with the group were abruptly taken down from Ticketmaster shortly after this announcement with no reasoning given.
This is not the first time that Brockhampton has put touring on hold; they also did so following the release of their third album Saturation III to focus on new music. Between 2017 and 2018, the band went on a European tour and a world tour to support their albums. After these tours wrapped up, many members of Brockhampton took part in solo projects or tours; for instance, Matt Champion went on tour with Danny Brown in early 2018 and Joba toured with Flo Milli in late 2019. However, this is the longest break that the group has taken since they first formed back in 2015.
Although it is unclear if Brockhampton will return to touring anytime soon, group leader Kevin Abstract has teased that new music from the band is “coming soon.” In an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 radio on April 27th, 2020, Abstract said he had been working on new music with fellow members Merlyn Wood and Romil Hemnani during quarantine and that he was hoping to have a new album out by the end of 2020. With such high hopes from their leader and several members still working together despite being on hiatus, there is a chance that we may see Brockhampton return to touring sooner rather than later.
Brockhampton will be performing their remaining shows, which include their Coachella performance and four nights at the O2 Academy Brixton in London. The announcement was made via the hip-hop boy band’s Twitter account with a statement from group leader Kevin Abstract. After these final performances, the band will be going on an indefinite hiatus. VIP packages are still available for purchase on the group’s website for those who want to see them perform one last time. Many members of the group have already posted about their indefinite hiatus, and Brockhampton has announced that all future tour dates are canceled. This is effective immediately.
While Brockhampton has had many members over the years, Matt Champion was the only original member left by the time of their European tour in 2018. The group rose to popularity with their satin trilogy of studio albums and has been a staple in pop culture ever since. Their most recent album, “iridescence” debuted at number one on the billboard 200. In light of this news, all of Brockhampton’s upcoming performances have been canceled, including their world tour. It is unclear what the future holds for the band, but fans are hopeful that they will reunite again in the future. Until then, fans can still listen to Brockhampton’s music and enjoy the memories of their past performances.
Why Did Brockhampton Announce Indefinite Hiatus
It is unclear why the group has decided to go on hiatus. Some speculate that it may be due to creative differences or fatigue. The group had released three studio albums in less than a year – SATURATION I, II, and III – and embarked on a world tour in support of the trilogy. It is possible that the grueling pace of releases and touring took its toll on the members of the group.
What is certain is that Brockhampton’s decision to go on hiatus has left many fans disappointed. The group had built up a large following due to the success of their SATURATION trilogy and their energetic live performances. Many fans are hoping that the hiatus is only temporary and that Brockhampton will return with new music shortly.
The hip-hop boy band has announced that they are going on an indefinite hiatus, but they have not ruled out the possibility of touring again in the future. Currently, there are no tour dates scheduled. They may announce additional tour dates in the future. Many members of Brockhampton have indicated that they are working on solo projects, so it is possible that the hiatus will be brief and that the group will tour again soon.
