Richard Clapton’s Music Is Love tour is another Covid restriction casualty.

Richard broke the news to fans posting to his Facebook page, “MAJOR BUMMER NEWS ALERT! If you haven’t yet heard, we have had to postpone the rest of my tour until August. Please accept my sincere apologies and great regret but we were forced into this decision due to circumstances way beyond our control.
