Bon Jovi’s summer tour — which had been scheduled to come to the Prudential Center in Newark, July 14, as well as Madison Square Garden in New York, July 27-28 — has been officially canceled.
Not postponed. Canceled.
“Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer,” said the group, in a statement. “Given these difficult times, we have made the decision to cancel the tour entirely. This will enable ticketholders to get refunds to help pay their bills or buy groceries. These are trying times. You’ve always been there for us and we’ll always be there for you. We look forward to seeing everyone again on tour when we can all safely be together. We will continue to send out news and updates on Bon Jovi touring in the weeks and months to come.”
Bryan Adams had been planning to open all shows on the tour.
Bon Jovi’s next album, Bon Jovi: 2020, was due out on May 15, but Jon Bon Jovi has said that the release will be delayed due to the pandemic.
