Bon Jovi cancels 2020 tour

Tour was to kick off in June

Bon Jovi has canceled the Bon Jovi 2020 Tour with Bryan Adams due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The band shared the news on Monday (April 20th), stating the decision should help ticketholders with more pressing matters like groceries and bills.

“Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer,” the band shares in a statement. “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.”

Last week, frontman Jon Bon Jovi shared the tour was “at least postponed” during an interview on Maria Shriver’s Home Together podcast. He also confirmed to Howard Stern that the Bon Jovi 2020 album has been delayed indefinitely due to the pandemic. The project was to be released on May 15th via Island Records, but will now include the pandemic-inspired song “Do What You Can” whenever it does get released.
