Journey have joined the slew of musicians to have canceled their tours in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement released on their official website, the band explained that “There is no greater thrill for us than playing for our incredibly devoted audience, but their safety must come first,” which is why they are forced to cancel their headlining tour across North America alongside The Pretenders.
The band also took the opportunity 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.”
The tour was scheduled to kick off on May 15 at the Sunlight Supply Amphitheater in Ridgefield, Washington, and travel across nearly 60 cities before wrapping up in early September.
Refunds will be made available to the ticketholders via LiveNation.
“In the meantime, please Don’t Stop Believin’ in the wonder of life and in each other,” Journey signed off.
