Pearl Jam Postpones Tour Due To COVID-19
Pearl Jam announced Monday it is postponing the North American leg of its Gigaton tour due to coronavirus fears.
“We’ve worked hard with all our management and business associates to find other solutions or options but the levels of risk to our audience and their communities is simply too high for our comfort level,” the band explained in a statement on its website.
“Add to that we also have a unique group of passionate fans who travel far and wide. We’ve always been humbled by this and respect their energies and devotion. However in this case, travel is something to avoid.”
Pearl Jam was set to kick off the tour on March 18 in Toronto, followed by shows in Ottawa on March 20, Quebec City on March 22, and Hamilton on March 24. It was not announced when the shows will be rescheduled.
“We have and will always keep the safety and well-being of our supporters as top priority,” read the statement.
“We are so sorry… And deeply upset… If anyone out there feels the same based on this news, we share that emotion with you."
