With no dates set yet for the re-opening of music venues in the U.K. due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, artists are having to reschedule concert dates and work around the health and safety regulations put in place by the U.K. government. Jedward are also affected by this, the Irish duo having to move their three show tour from August to February. It had originally been planned for May.
Jedward have kept their fans entertained during the COVID-19 quarantine, which they had been spending in Los Angeles, with best friend, actress Tara Reid, during which time they were interviewed on ITV’s ‘ITV’s ‘Loose Women’. Now back in Dublin, John has uploaded an acoustic guitar cover of The Police classic, ‘Every Breath You Take’.

Thankfully, the band are back with a new album, rescheduled dates and a point to prove.
