SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, August 23, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) – Country duo Florida Georgia Line became the youngest act to cancel their current tour citing the ongoing COVID crisis.
Refunds will be processed automatically to the original purchase method according to the ribbon statement.
The tour was scheduled to begin in Atlanta, Georgia on September 24th. The band would have played at Vivint Arena on November 17th, the third last stop on the tour, which ended on November 20th in Seattle, Washington.
“There’s nothing like seeing all your faces from the stage, feeling your good energy and making memories together,” band member Tyler Hubbard said in a statement. “We were hoping to get back on the road this fall and are so disappointed to have to cancel this tour, but we know in our hearts that we still have to make sure we protect our fans and crew. It’s a shame that we have to cancel, but we hope for your understanding. We love our fans and can’t wait to be outside when the time is right. “
Brian Kelley of the duo added in a statement, “While we’ve seen some of you at shows lately, the continued safety of everyone weighs heavily on us. To our fans, band, crew and all venues across the country, thank you very much for your love and support! Without you guys we couldn’t do what we’re doing and we hope we can all do our part to bring live music back soon. “
