Unfortunately, it looks like our summer of incredible live music is going to be canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak. All non-essential events including live concerts and festivals have fallen victim to being forced to postpone or cancel shows altogether so here is an ongoing list of each of the tours that are canceled or postponed and details about each.
Kenny Chesney’s stadium tour with Florida Georgia Line, Old Dominion, and Michael Franti & Spearhead is postponed until 2021. Original tickets are automatically valid for a rescheduled show date. MetLife Stadium in New Jersey’s new date is August 22nd, 2021. If you have tickets to a postponed show, refund options will be available at the time a rescheduled show date is announced.

Possibly one of the most upsetting announcements came from Rascal Flatts who was gearing up to kick off their farewell tour after two decades in the music industry. In their announcement, they told fans to keep an eye out for some fun surprises that will celebrate their milestone year. Ticket holders will receive an e-mail in the coming days regarding refund options. More information is available at livenation.com/refund.
Sam Hunt’s 2020 summer comeback tour with special guests Kip Moore, Travis Denning, and Ernest is canceled. Ticket holders will have up to 30 days to get a full refund or 150% credit. For more information visit, samhunt.com.
Another big upset and a staple show to many summer tailgates is Luke Bryan and his 2020 Proud To Be Right Here Tour. This year, Bryan planned to bring along Morgan Wallen, Runaway June, and Caylee Hammack. The tour will be postponed to 2021 and the opening acts will remain the same.
