Sweden: “Melodifestivalen 2022” Tour Will Be Cancelled

According to the official statement made by SVT, “Melodifestivalen 2022” tour around Sweden will be cancelled.

Due to the spread of the Covid pandemic, new restrictions will probably be presented to the public.
A maximum of 500 people are allowed in all public events. Meanwhile, “Melodifestivalen” usually includes an enormous number of people in the audience (about 20,000).

Moving the show between 6 different cities has high costs. It would be hard to cover those costs without selling all the planned tickets.
In 2021, SVT held all the shows in Stockholm.
