Bon Jovi has canceled their cross-country U.S. tour due to COVID-19, with the band saying the trek is “no longer feasible”

Jon Bon Jovi is the latest musician to cancel his 2020 tour plans due to everything happening with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Jon and his band, Bon Jovi, are putting a nix to their full Bon Jovi 2020 tour. The trek was set to feature support from Bryan Adams. As of right now, there are no makeup dates.

“Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer,” the band said in a statement. “Given these difficult times, we have made the decision to cancel the tour entirely. This will enable ticket holders to get refunds to help pay their bills or buy groceries.”

“These are trying times. You’ve always been there for us and we’ll always be there for you,” they added. “We look forward to seeing everyone again on tour when we can all safely be together. We will continue to send out news and updates on Bon Jovi touring in the weeks and months to come.”

Bon Jovi’s new album, “Bon Jovi 2020,” is still set to arrive May 15.

In other news, Jon is scheduled to appear on ET at 7 p.m. Wednesday (April 22), as part of the Jersey 4 Jersey benefit to raise funds to help New Jersey’s struggles during the COVID-19 crisus. Other big names set to appear at the show include Bruce Springsteen, Tony Bennett, Charlie Puth, Whoopi Goldberg, Halsey, Jon Stewart and Kelly Ripa.
