Dead & Company have canceled their scheduled 2020 Summer Tour due to mounting concerns regarding the ongoing global health crisis.
According to a statement shared by the band,
Due to the global coronavirus outbreak, and in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we sadly have no choice but to cancel the upcoming Dead & Company Summer 2020 Tour.
The well-being and safety of the Deadhead community, venue workers and our touring family is of the utmost importance to us. We also want to provide you, the fans who’ve been hit hard financially during this difficult time with your money back. All tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase.
We are thankful for your love, your understanding and we look forward to the day when we can all be reunited. In the meantime, keep the faith and believe in the power of music.
We will return. We will get by. We will survive.
The news of the tour’s cancellation follows a report last week that the Dead & Company tour opener at Folsom Field on the University of Colorado Boulder campus had been canceled along with the rest of the scheduled events on campus this summer.
