JPEGMAFIA and Sarah Harmer announce new dates for Fiona-cancelled shows

The rapper will play Halifax December 10, while the singer-songwriter returns to town in January. .

When the arrival of Hurricane Fiona caused its own flurry of cancellations, it meant concerts by both up-and-coming MC superstar JPEGMAFIA and singer-songwriter Can-con queen Sarah Harmer had to be cancelled. The former was slated to come to Halifax as headliner for Hopscotch, the largest hip hop festival in eastern Canada. The latter was landing for a string of shows that have been pushed and re-shuffled a handful of times already during the pandemic.

Both, though, have recently announced their updated plans for a Halifax show—a welcome relief to ticket-holders. Over the long weekend, Hopscotch posted on Instagram that JPEGMAFIA will play The Light House Arts Centre on December 10. All original tickets and full festival passes will be honoured for entry. New tickets are also available via eventbrite, costing $43.45.

Harmer, meanwhile, will be bringing her "Are You Gone" tour to Halifax on January 13 and 14. The singer-songwriter will play The Rebecca Cohn Auditorium—and tickets from her postponed March 2022 and September 2022 shows will be honoured. Tickets are also still on sale for Harmer, via Sonic Concerts's site. They're $41 in advance and $46 the day of the show.
