AceShowbiz - Bon Jovi have cancelled their summer tour due to the coronavirus pandemic, as keyboard player David Bryan recovers from COVID-19.
The news was announced via a statement on Monday, April 20, a day after Bryan took to social media to update fans on his progress.
"Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer," the "It's My Life" rockers say in a statement. "Given these difficult times, we have made the decision to cancel the tour entirely. This will enable ticket holders 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, who tested positive in March, took to Instagram to share news of his recovery on Sunday.
"There are people who have no symptoms, people who got sick (like me), people fighting for their lives and people who sadly have lost their lives," he posted. "This is a nasty virus but science/medicine will conquer all. Thank you to all for your well wishes. Thank you to all the doctors and nurses and all on the front lines. You are the true heroes!"
