Torres, who is currently touring Europe, is asking for donations from fans to help get her and the band home to the US following travel bans over the coronavirus outbreak.

Over the past few weeks, the COVID-19 outbreak has caused a number of musicians and festivals to postpone events and shows.

Torres, who just played in Berlin last night (11 March), is touring her Silver Tongue album, and is now looking to get her and her band back to the US after President Trump announced a temporary travel ban from 26 European countries to the US, which is expected to come into force on Friday (13 March).

Yesterday (11 March) on Twitter, Torres wrote, "Very casually racing to figure out if I can get my entire band back into the US in the next 24 hours, everything’s fine. It’s fine."

An hour later, she posted a link to her subscription-based Patreon account, writing, "I’m asking for help getting home, guys. I’m going to lose every penny I made on tour booking emergency flights for my band. Thank you in advance. I’ve never experienced anything like this. Please be well everyone."

According to The Guardian, Trump's travel ban will not affect US citizens who are travelling home. Hopefully Torres and her crew can get back to the US soon.
