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.
MOTLEY CRUE / DEF LEPPARD / POISON "STADIUM TOUR" RESCHEDULED DATES
"The Stadium Tour," which features a reformed Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Poison, Joan Jett and more was already postponed and now they're announced new dates. 2021 dates kick off June 19 in Nashville and wrapping up September 12 in San Diego. The new NYC show happens July 15 at Citi Field. All dates are here.
THE HOLD STEADY
"It has been a long and unique Spring in 2020," write The Hold Steady announcing that "all previously announced North America 2020 dates have now been moved to 2021." That includes the First Ave. 50th Anniversary celebration in Minneapolis and the Constructive Summer weekends scheduled for Nashville/Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles and Toronto. The band also note "Massive Nights at Brooklyn Bowl in New York is still up in the air for this year. If we all can’t be there physically at the Bowl the week after Thanksgiving, we are brainstorming other ideas and we will keep you updated over the summer." New dates and more details are here.
JIMMY EAT WORLD / FRONT BOTTOMS
Jimmy Eat World and The Front Bottoms were to be on tour together this summer but that's been cancelled. "Hey Everyone - it comes as no surprise, but a bummer nonetheless, that we are pulling the plug on our tour with The Front Bottoms that was set to kick off in August. If you purchased a ticket, you will be receiving an email with your refund options... We’ll be back on the road as soon as it’s safe to do so and in the meantime, stay well and keep your eyes & ears peeled for some fun stuff we’re working on."

MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE
Riot Fest announced My Chemical Romance as a 2020 headliner back in January, but since then we hadn't heard any updates about the status of the festival for this year, or its lineup. Now they've announced that, as you likely expected, they'll be taking 2020 off because of coronavirus. They'll be back in 2021, though, at Chicago's Douglas Park on September 17-19, plus a "preview party" on September 16.
