Pop chanteuse Wendy James has rescheduled her 19-date tour for the second time, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The former Transvision Vamp singer was due to hit the road in May to promote her new album Queen High Straight (reviewed here), which came out at the start of that month.

It was rescheduled for September once the scale of the ovid-19 crisis became clear, and with no signs of a re-start date for the live music industry, it has been shifted again, to April 2021.

“I’ve been waiting this out, always optimistic that Covid19 dissolution might take less time than forecasted… but not so! “ said Wendy.

Wendy James will release her new album on May 1.

“It is clear from talking to the many promoters around the UK who run the venues I’m booked to play (not merely once, this last May, but also this September) that a real gig cannot safely, legally and joyfully happen before 2021.

“So, I’ve moved my entire tour to April 2021 and – amazingly, added dates! I now have Paisley and Oxford added in, and am likely announce Liverpool, Sheffield and an Irish tour to boot!

“2021 can be a great touring year for The Wendy James Band, with the UK tour in April, festivals and a couple of big support slots to announce!”

The announcement this week came at the same time as news of a new AA-side single, Kill Some Time Blues and Marlene Et Fleur, which was picked by fans from the latest album. She will be releasing a vinyl box set containing all singles later this year.
