Luke Bryan is the latest artist to adjust a tour schedule in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The country star was set to launch his Proud To Be Right Here Tour next month and remain on the road until October. He has now rearranged the stacked itinerary to begin in July out of caution for health concerns, with the tour scheduled to go strong through the fall.
“What an incredibly confusing and scary time our world is facing right now, and it is important we continue to follow the guidelines we have been given and do our part to keep everyone safe,” the singer said in a statement. “With that in mind, we are choosing to stay home at this time so we can have fun sharing this music and tour with you this summer. I truly believe that music can provide all forms of emotional connections for everyone and I can’t wait to get on the road and share these new songs with you soon.”
The trek will get underway July 10 in Orange Beach, Alabama and weave its way around the country with a total of three dozen cities on the agenda. Bryan will play a majority of amphitheaters with arena gigs lined up in hot markets like New York, Nashville and Los Angeles. Morgan Wallen, Runaway June and Caylee Hammack will provide support on select dates.
In addition to pushing back his tour, Bryan has also delayed the release of his upcoming album Born Here, Live Here, Die Here. The record was due out April 24 but will now arrive on August 7.
