Due to the travel ban from Ireland to the United States of America and the rising numbers of COVID cases on both sides of the Atlantic, we have had to postpone our US tour this October and November.

This was not an easy decision to make, as we have not played a proper concert in over 20 months, but we feel it is the right decision at this point.

We do not want, at any cost, to put ourselves or our audiences in any danger and we look forward to returning to the US next year.

Until then keep following Altan by buying our music, requesting your local radio station to play our albums or listening to Altan whenever you can!

See you in 2022🌸🌸
