The Canceled Tours And Festivals Due To Coronavirus
Affected By The Pandemic
In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, several tours, and festivals, have been postponed especially those scheduled in Asia. Because the virus spreads quickly, big gatherings can be particularly dangerous. Avoiding crowds, staying at home, and limiting close contact are advisable.
So here, we compiled some of the treks and events which were moved to a later date or canceled altogether. The artists’ official websites contain information regarding tickets such as refund details. Most of the concerts will honor original tickets to be used on the rescheduled dates.
