Guns N’ Roses‘ summer 2020 North American stadium tour is being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The nearly two-month-long trek was scheduled to launch on July 4th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and run through August 26th on Missoula, Montana.
The band said in a statement, “The North American tour is being rescheduled out of an abundance of caution. We will share the updated schedule as soon as the dates are finalized and all tickets will be honored accordingly. If you are a ticket holder and would prefer a refund, please visit livenation.com/refund for your options.”
The group added, “Thank you for your understanding during this time as we look forward to coming back together very soon.”
Guns also recently postponed a string of summer European shows, while a spring South and Central American trek was pushed to the fall.
Ironically, Guns N’ Roses was one of the last major acts to play live, when the band performed on March 14th at the Vive Latino festival in Mexico City. Though the coronavirus had forced many other major festivals to cancel their events by that time, Vive Latino continued as planned despite mounting concerns.
