Bon Jovi cancel upcoming summer tour in order that fans can get refunds
Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi is showing a great sense of awareness and compassion for others as the singer has elected to cancel his band’s entire tour rather than postpone and/or reschedule certain dates or even the entire tour.
Back in January 2020, Bon Jovi had announced that they would be touring throughout North America from June 10, 2020 to July 28, 2020 with Bryan Adams as the opening act for most of the dates.
The following message was posted on Bon Jovi‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“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 ticketholders 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.”
Bon Jovi‘s decision to cancel the tour rather than postpone or reschedule it is likely in response to Ticketmaster recently changing its refund policy from “postponed, rescheduled or canceled” to simply “canceled” amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
