Dead & Company, the supergroup which is made up of members of the Grateful Dead and John Mayer, have been forced to cancel their summer 2020 tour because of the current coronavirus pandemic.
“Due to the global coronavirus outbreak, and in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we sadly have no choice but to cancel the upcoming Dead & Company Summer 2020 Tour,” the band said in a statement posted on social media.
“The well-being and safety of the Deadhead community, venue workers and our touring family is of the utmost importance to us. We also want to provide you, the fans who’ve been hit hard financially during this difficult time with your money back. All tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase.”
The band continued: “We are thankful for your love, your understanding and we look forward to the day when we can all be reunited. In the meantime, keep the faith and believe in the power of music.
We will return.
