More Artists Cancel Shows
In light of the recent coronavirus outbreak, more and more musicians are canceling shows. The latest rock act to reschedule their gig is Queen + Adam Lambert. They were supposed to perform at the AccorHotels Arena in Paris on May 26 but they had to postpone it.
In a statement posted on their website, they wrote: “Unfortunately, our show in Paris has had to be postponed following a government decree in France to cancel all indoor events over 5000 capacity in France until 31st May in an effort to contain the spread of Coronavirus.
“We are currently working with the promoter to try to reschedule the date. We will make a further announcement at the earliest opportunity.
“Please keep hold of your tickets, which would be valid for the new date. Ticket holders will be advised on reimbursement procedure, if required, in due course.”
They also stressed out that it’s the only gig they canceled and that “No other Queen + Adam Lambert shows have been affected at this time.”
Other bands who also canceled shows in the past few days include Slipknot, Whitesnake, Trivium, and Sons of Apollo. Even Ozzy Osbourne, who’s slated to appear on the world premiere of Biography: The Nine Lives Of Ozzy Osbourne at South By Southwest, will be skipping the event.
