SAN ANTONIO (WOAI) — Bon Jovi announced on Monday of the cancellation of its tour in support of their new album "2020."
The tour, which was previously postponed, is now canceled so fans can get a refund that can be used for more pressing needs.
“Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer," the band said in a statement posted on their website. "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. 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.”
The "2020" album was originally scheduled to be released on May 15, but Jon Bon Jovi told Howard Stern last week that the pandemic is postponing the LP's arrival to some date in the future so he can include a new song he wrote about COVID-19 called "Do What You Can."
