The band had previously postponed the start of the tour amid the novel coronavirus pandemic. But with no end to social distancing restrictions in sight, Bon Jovi agreed it was better to ensure fans — especially those who are either furloughed or out of work — get their money back.
"Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is not longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer," a statement from the band read. "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."
Bon Jovi's tour cancellation comes after news spread that some tickets are non-refundable for postponed events.
While you might not be able to see Bon Jovi on tour anytime soon, Jon will be participating in tomorrow night's Jersey 4 Jersey benefit for the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund.
