Bon Jovi is not waiting around to see if it’ll be deemed safe to attend concerts this summer, as they announced the cancellation of their entire 2020 tour with Bryan Adams yesterday.
That will wipe out the July 25th date at Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C.
The band issued the following statement:
“Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer. Given these difficult times, we have made the decision to cancel the tour entirely. This will enable ticketholders to get refunds to help pay their bills or buy groceries. These are trying times. You’ve always been there for us and we’ll always be there for you. We look forward to seeing everyone again on tour when we can all safely be together. We will continue to send out news and updates on Bon Jovi touring in the weeks and months to come.”
The COVID-19 crisis has hit close to home for Bon Jovi as long time keyboardist David Bryan announced he tested positive for the coronavirus a few weeks ago.
As of now, Bon Jovi are still slated to release their new album, Bon Jovi 2020, on May 15th.
