“As you may know, the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles recently announced that it is officially closed for events through at least March 31,” the statement reads. “This includes the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards scheduled to air Sunday, March 29 on FOX. The safety of our guests, employees, artists and partners is our main priority. iHeartMedia and FOX will plan to reschedule at the appropriate time and will provide more information and relevant updates as they become available.”
Refunds will be issued to ticket holders, however, voting will still continue for eight fan-voted categories including Best Fan Army through Friday, March 27. Then, winners will be announced shortly after.
