Peter Brötzmann has made the decision to cancel all of his live concerts for the remainder of 2021.
Due to health issues related to his COPD, coupled with the danger of traveling while Covid is still rampant in many countries, he feels it would be more sensible to play live again when things calm down in general.
Stay tuned for exciting new releases to be announced soon!
