ALTER BRIDGE Cancels Summer 2020 European Tour

ALTER BRIDGE has canceled its previously announced summer 2020 European tour due to the coronavirus pandemic which is sweeping the globe.

The band announced the cancelation in a social media post earlier today. The group wrote: "As the world continues to develop in the response to the changes of the Covid-19 pandemic, it has become clear that no one can provide definitive answers as for how musicians, promoters, local crew, staff and fans can come together in a way that protects everyone and takes in to account the challenges of a world tour. We have tried to hold out as long as we could, but it is becoming increasingly apparent that our ability to tour Europe this summer in a way our fans have come to expect is no longer an option. We have tried exploring every possibility, but with the different rules and capacities globally we have learned there is no adequate way to move forward.

"As of this time, this is for the European tour, but there may be a chance you will hear from us again soon about the previous postponed US dates. We are exploring every opportunity to try and see our fans globally as soon as it is appropriate to do so.

"Until we can gather together in a live concert setting, take care of yourselves and each other. We are in unprecedented times and our world is changing. It is on all of us to make it better for everyone so we can get together and celebrate our common love of music in the near future."

ALTER BRIDGE recently postponed its previously announced U.S. headlining tour with special guests BLACK STONE CHERRY and SAINT ASONIA due to the coronavirus crisis.

ALTER BRIDGE's latest album, "Walk The Sky", was released in October via Napalm Records.
