Legendary band, Journey, has made a difficult decision. The band has decided to cancel the entirety of their 2020 tour, due to COVID-19. They hope this helps fans who are struggling financially while also keeping them safe.
“There is no greater thrill for us than playing for our incredibly devoted audience, but their safety must come first,” the band’s Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain and Arnel Pineda said in a joint statement. “Having seen what the world has endured during the last 45 days and not knowing what the rest of this year or 2021 will bring, we knew the right thing to do was to make sure our fans’ health was not put in jeopardy and to provide immediate access to refund options given the unexpected events caused by this terrible virus.”
“We would like to thank all doctors, nurses, police, other first responders and essential workers for their heroic efforts; as well as our fans for doing everything possible to stay safe. We would also like to send The Pretenders our best wishes and hope to see them in the future. We will see everyone again as soon as it is safe to tour, and we will share that news as it becomes available. In the meantime, please ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’ in the wonder of life and in each other.”
Live Nation will email all ticket holders directly. That email will contain refund options that include a full refund or a “150% credit + Live Nation will donate the number of tickets you originally purchased to healthcare workers on the front lines.” Find out more about that here.
