Another day, and another summer tour cancelled. Such is life during the coronavirus pandemic.
Journey has announced the cancellation of it’s summer tour with The Pretenders over concerns of the spread of COVID-19.
That includes to local dates, August 2nd at Jiffy Lube Live! in Bristow, Virginia and September 11th at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
Here is the message Journey posted on their Facebook page announcing the cancellation:
“There is no greater thrill for us than playing for our incredibly devoted audience, but their safety must come first. Having seen what the world has endured during the last 45 days, and not knowing what the rest of this year or 2021 will bring, we knew the right thing to do was to make sure our fans’ health was not put in jeopardy and to provide immediate access to refund options given the unexpected events caused by this terrible virus. We would like to thank all doctors, nurses, police, other first responders and essential workers for their heroic efforts; as well as our fans for doing everything possible to stay safe. We would also like to send The Pretenders our best wishes and hope to see them in the future. We will see everyone again as soon as it is safe to tour, and we will share that news as it becomes available. In the meantime, please Don’t Stop Believin’ in the wonder of life and in each other.”
