Much of the conversation lately has been surrounding the cancellation of tours and concerts due to the novel coronavirus. Bon Jovi recently canceled his 2020 tour to help fans with refunds they need.
The band expressed their love for their fans in a heartfelt message explaining the reason behind the canceled tour.
In a message to fans the band wrote, “Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer. Given these difficult times, we have made the decision to cancel the tour entirely. This will enable ticket holders to get refunds to help pay their bills or buy groceries.”
Bon Jovi’s tour was originally set to take place this summer. It was meant to coincide with the band’s fifteenth studio album. Bon Jovi: 2020 was supposed to be a nod to the current political climate, exploring more “socially conscious” themes.
The band wants fans to be able to buy groceries, pay bills, and be able to afford the necessities they need in these trying times.
Bon Jovi is scheduled to appear on the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund’s “Jersey 4 Jersey Benefit Show” Wednesday instead.
The tour will be rescheduled, Bon Jovi said.
