The Tours Cancelled By Covid-19

The coronavirus pandemic led many artists to change their tour plans, particularly those that were scheduled for Europe and Asia.

The entire dates of Pearl Jam, Green Day, Whitesnake, and others have been postponed while Sons of Apollo and Bryan Adams were on the verge of tours when they had to cancel. 

Additionally, Queen + Adam Lambert’s date in Paris was rescheduled, and while Van Morrison found a creative way around the suggestion of banning gatherings of more than 1,000 in France.

Not only that the virus affected tour dates of many acts, but also the festival industry such as the entire South by Southwest Conference and Festivals — which Ozzy Osbourne and Trent Reznor are set to make appearances — canceled for the first time in its more than 3 decades history. The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival also rescheduled its annual event for six months.
