With measures trying to stop the spread of the coronavirus, tours/festivals through spring (and into summer and the fall) are being postponed/canceled left and right. Many have now been rescheduled, too. Head here for more COVID-19 related news and check the Tour Dates category every day for more tour-related news.
CHRIS STAPLETON TOUR RESCHEDULED
Chris Stapleton's All American Road Show tour is being rescheduled to 2021 in light of the COVID-19 crisis. The new dates begin in April and include NJ's PNC Bank Arts Center July 23 and NYC's Madison Square Garden on October 8. Chris' Facebook post notes, "The rescheduled dates for the shows at Globe Life Field in Arlington and Wrigley Field in Chicago will be announced as soon as possible, pending Major League Baseball’s final schedule for 2021. The show at Truist Park in Atlanta has been canceled and tickets will be automatically refunded. We’ll be returning to Atlanta next year and those details will be announced at a later date." All dates can be found on here.
DREAMVILLE FEST CANCELLED
J. Cole's Dreamville Fest—which was meant to take place on August 29 in North Carolina and included acts from EARTHGANG, Bas, 6LACK, J.I.D., Teyana Taylor, Big Sean, SZA, and 21 Savage— has been canceled::
"After much deliberation and careful monitoring of the current situation, we have decided to cancel Dreamville Festival 2020. Although we originally hoped it would be possible to bring you the festival this August, the ongoing uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic as made this timeline no longer possible. This decision has been extremely difficult to make. But the safety of our fans, artists, and staff is always our top priority. And nothing will ever take precedence over your well-being."
Angel Olsen's previously postponed All Mirrors Tour (with guest Madi Diaz) has been canceled:
"For the sake of the safety and health of ticket buyers, my band, and my crew- all dates which were to be postponed from April in the south (US) are unfortunately cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase. I look forward to returning to the road on the other side of this. In the meantime- please stay healthy, wear a mask, and go register to vote."
SOUND AND FURY CANCELLED
LA's Sound and Fury festival will not be taking place this year. The Run For Cover sponsored festival and aftershow were meant to take place on July 12 and 13 and didn't announce their lineup till late March when cancellation was already a consideration. That lineup was to include Abuse of Power, Antagonize, Basement, Dead Heat, Fiddlehead, Fury, Lil Ugly Mane, Power Trip, Protestor, Teenage Wrist, Union Front, Wild Side, and Young Guv. "Thank you all for your attention, energy, and passion over the last 2 months," they wrote on Facebook. "As of this moment, we do not believe it would be possible to hold an event like Sound and Fury in 2020 and thus want to refocus attention to the future."
