Dan + Shay are the most recent performers to announce a delay in their spring concert dates.

In a press release, the award-winning duo announced that the spring leg of their arena tour has been postponed. They write, “Well, here we are. March 12, 2020, sitting in a bus parked outside Wells Fargo Center, making a statement we never thought we’d have to make. After the mandatory postponement of our Philadelphia show, and several others in the coming weeks, we have made the collective decision (with our team and health officials) to postpone the spring leg of THE (ARENA) TOUR.”

They go on to say, “These shows mean the world to us, and it was important that they be postponed and not canceled, but more than the shows, our fans mean the world to us, and protecting their safety is the number one priority. We want the shows to be memorable, and not experienced with fear.”

Dan’s wife Abbey commented on the news of the cancellation saying, “You did right by all, putting safety first but doing everything in your power to reschedule. Will be just as amazing at the end of summer. ❤️.”

The friends and music partners have already rescheduled the dates and say that previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates. They also remind ticket holders to monitor venue websites for any additional information. There is no word on whether openers Ingrid Andress and Band Camino will be available to join them on the rescheduled dates.
