Florida Georgia Line have announced their ‘I Love My Country’ tour has been canceled due to concerns over the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The 29-date arena and amphitheater tour was set to kick off on Sept. 24 at the Cellairis Amphitheater in Atlanta.
The musicians tweeted: “While we’ve been able to see some of y’all at shows recently, everyone’s continued safety has been weighing heavy on us. We’re so bummed to have to cancel this tour, but we love y’all and can’t wait to be back out when the time is right. For all current ticket holders, refunds will be issued to the original method of payment used at time of purchase. No action is required to obtain a refund.”
Band member Tyler Hubbard wrote a statement on his Instagram, “Due to the rising COVID cases and risk of putting our family, band and crew, friends, and fans in harms way, we’ve decided it’s best to cancel the fall tour. He added that it was “one of the toughest decisions” and that canceling the shows “breaks our hearts.” Brian Kelley added on his Instagram stories. “Massive bummer y’all!!!! Was looking forward to this more than anything! Sad day. LOVEYALL.”
