(CNN)Garth Brooks is requiring his unrecorded music party to be postponed.
The country superstar on Wednesday said he’s dropping the following five stops on his visit, the remainder of which should happen on October 9.
“In July, I sincerely thought the pandemic was falling behind us. Now, watching this new wave, I realize we are still in the fight and I must do my part,” Brooks said in a statement.
Brooks restarted his visit in July and, as per a delivery, had been set to act in the urban communities of Cincinnati (Sept. 18), Charlotte (Sept. 25), Baltimore (Oct. 2), Foxborough (Oct. 9) and Nashville (which had not been rescheduled subsequent to being dropped because of severe climate).
Creeks composed that he is “hopeful” that he can discover new dates “and start over when this wave seems to be behind us.” This could occur when year’s end, he added.
wave seems to be behind us.” This could happen as soon as year’s end, he added.
“With that said, the most important thing to me is fulfilling my end of the Stadium Tour by making sure every show is doable before putting tickets on sale (that is why we pulled the Seattle on sale) and making sure the environment these people are trading their time and money to put themselves into is not only the best experience ever, but also the safest one we can provide,” he said.
The about 350,000 tickets for the five shows influenced will be discounted.
“The joy I have seen in everyone’s faces as live music returns has been more than worth our constant diligence to maintain safety protocols not only for the fans, but for our band, the crew and the hard working staff in these stadiums,” Brooks added. “Their dedication to safety for the people who fill those seats has been a miracle to watch and a blessing to receive. I am truly grateful.”
