Swedish House Mafia has canceled five more shows on its upcoming 2022 Paradise Again arena tour on Friday (July 22).
The newly canceled shows were to be held July 31 at the Amway Center in Orlando, Aug. 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York, Aug. 9 at TD Garden in Boston, Aug. 11 at Verizon Arena Washington D.C. and Aug. 17 in Detroit at Little Caesars Arena. In April the band canceled three shows on the tour Paradise Lost Tour – an Aug. 3 show at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, an Aug. 19 show at Xcel Energy Center in Minneapolis and an Aug. 30 show at Footprint Center in Phoenix.
The band has stayed silent on the cancellations so far — the last tweet from the Swedish House Mafia Twitter page is from Wednesday and shows a picture taken from the band’s stage of its lighting rig with the text reading “We’re coming for you.”
But the success or failure of a tour like Paradise Again is difficult to predict — the trio had not toured the U.S. in nearly a decade and there wasn’t much data publicly available to help gauge demand.
