Kenny Chesney cancelled 11 dates on his upcoming Chillaxification Tour in response to the coronavirus outbreak. The 11 dates—in April and May—have not been rescheduled yet, although Kenny’s team hopes to have rescheduled dates announced in the next six weeks.
The tour is slated to resume on May 30 in Pittsburgh. The decision continues ongoing actions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which was labeled a pandemic on March 11 by the World Health Organizations.
“You can’t take risks without really understanding the consequences,” says Kenny. “In times of uncertainty, I won’t take chances with those I love. I can’t imagine, as much as we love being out there playing for the fans, being able to do that through the worry our nation is experiencing.
“So, while we wait to see how this terrible virus is going to impact our country, I think it’s only fair to move these first several dates now. We are figuring some of this out as we go, but I know people buy airline tickets, book hotel rooms—and I wanted to try to give everyone as much time to sort that out as possible.”
