Exactly. Even though he's always been the youthful one, it doesn't matter. He shouldn't take chances, regardless of willingness to do so.

I believe a vaccine is our only hope of returning to any semblance of normal life. I think we're f*cked until then.

Why wait any longer? If he has a statement to make, he should make it now.
True. And if you can be promoted at all, now that we are all part of a captive audience, he might get more eyes and ears on him this way than he would with a tour. But I would rather it not be one-man show. Four piece band would be good.

And heís had a seizure before, even if we donít know why. Stevie had decided the edge walk was dangerous even before this all happened. Now, thereís no shaking hands.

Yep which means no more meet and greets. Glad I got to shake his hand 2 years ago.

There might never again be meet and greets, for eternity, now.

Mick will be bankrupt in a year.

Jazz Fest cancelled for 2020 and already announced the 2021 days.

I think it's smart that LB's marketing people didn't put any of these summer dates on his website. Leave it to the venues & bookers to put the word out about existing shows.

Same! He has so much to offer. The new collaboration with The Killers was a huge surprise. Would love to see more.

You could still take pictures at a meet and greet. 6 feet apart from the celebrity.

I (and many others) was supposed to see him and hug him in two days. And now that I think about it, we were so fortunate to meet him and talk to him and support him so many times that I'm truly ok knowing that he's taking no chances and I hope he re-considers and cancels the whole tour until next year.

Like Homer said, a vaccine is our only hope of going back to a normal life. Lindsey should take good care of himself until then. He had to deal with enough sh*t lately.

Quick vent...

The Atlanta venue is refusing to offer any refunds since the show is technically just "postponed."

While I am sad the tour has been canceled (for now), I really need the money back from the tickets I bought. It's like they're holding the funds hostage. And there is no news for new shows because of the virus (obviously!).

Not sure how to go about this. Very frustrating all around (I am not blaming anyone for this, clearly the virus has wreaked havoc on everyone).

Sorry, just kinda venting here.

Hope all of you are well.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope a treasure chest of cash comes to you!
The one thought I had was maybe you could call Live Nation, and ask for Customer or Patron services. I think they are the parent company of Ticketmaster.

Unfortunately, thatís Live Nation and Ticketmasterís policy all around the world. I have tickets for Rumours of FM in the UK and until the show isnít canceled, TM wonít give me my money back.

Thatís why Iím also hoping for this tour to be 100 percent canceled. People need the money right now!
