Mackey was also poised to extensively tour the US throughout 2020 and into 2021. Fast forward to June 2020 where to this point, Mackey has had over 60 shows cancelled. The cancellations began in March as Curse was mid-tour with Clan of Xymox and the decision to cancel the rest of the tour was made on March 15th.
