Rolling Stones postpones tour dates due to coronavirus

In an official statement, the legendary British band The Rolling Stones has warned that it will postpone the North American tour that was scheduled to begin on May 8 in San Diego and end on July 9 in Atlanta.


Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood said:

“We’re hugely disappointed to have to postpone the tour. We are sorry to all the fans who were looking forward to it as much as we were, but the health and safety of everyone has to take priority. We will all get through this together – and we’ll see you all very soon.”

American government imposed restrictions on mass gatherings. Thefore all events are being canceled from all areas, including Rolling Stones concerts.

Rockstars are in the risk group

Most rockstars from the 60s, 70s and 80s have ages ranging from 60 to 80 years old. Therefore, they are on the risk group. For people that have 60 years of age and over, the Coronavirus can be more serious.

Dozens of tours were postponed to to guarantee the safety of fans, since agglomerations are currently being banned in many countries and also to guarantee the safety of musicians, who are in the risk group. Kiss, for example, canceled meet and greets with fans and shortly afterwards postponed the last three shows of the current part of their tour.

The China’s Center for Disease Control reported that researchers looked at the first 72,314 patients with confirmed or suspected Covid-19. They discovered a huge variation in the case fatality rate by age group. So, the disease gets deadlier according to the age.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
