Fifteen date trek was set for May 8th
The Rolling Stones have postponed their upcoming 2020 No Filter Tour due to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. The 15 date trek was set to kick off in San Diego on May 8th and wrap in Atlanta on July 9th.
“We’re hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour,” the group shares in a statement. “We are sorry to all the fans who were looking froward to it as much as we were, but the health and safety of everyone has to take priority. We will all get through this together — and we’ll see you very soon.”
AEG Presents/Concerts West advise ticket holders to hold onto their original tickets and await further information.
Every major concert, festival and event have either been postponed or canceled due to the pandemic the World Health Organization (WHO) declared last week. Nearly 200k cases have been reported in 110 countries with nearly 8k deaths. More than 83k people have contracted and survived the virus that was discovered last year.
Last week, U.S. President Donald Trump declared a 30 day travel ban to European countries, where the coronavirus has shut down Italy and France. He shares, “I am confident by counting and continuing to take these measures we will significantly reduce the threat to our citizens and we will ultimately and expeditiously defeat this virus,” per Fox News. The virus is spreading at a rapid pace, forcing schools and businesses to close throughout the nation.
