He added that refunds will be given to the approximately 350,000 tickets sold for upcoming stadium shows.

“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,” he said in a statement.

He added that there could be a possibility of scheduling new dates by the end of the year, but his rep said all shows will have refunds processed. He last played a gig in Nebraska in front of nearly 90,000 fans over the weekend.

Shelved dates include Cincinnati on September 18, Charlotte on September 25, Baltimore on October 2, Foxborough on October 9 and Nashville, which was awaiting a rescheduling date already.

“I have asked the wonderful cities of Cincinnati and Charlotte to wait too long, and I don’t want to now do that same thing to the great folks in Boston and Baltimore. AAs far as Nashville, we are looking for a make up date from the July rain-out and though this is not COVID-related, to make them wait makes me sad, as well. So, it is with a heavy heart we announce the decision to cancel all five shows but with a hopeful heart, we will reschedule and start over when this wave seems to be behind us,” he continued.

“I’m sincerely hoping we are back on tour before the year’s end. 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 went on to say.

“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. 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.”

Another superstar also just called off their tour dates for the remainder of the year for the same reason.
