Sturgill and Tyler were supposed to roll through Chicago last month, and now, it doesn’t look like they’ll be rolling anywhere at all. According to a note from the bossman himself, and shared via Tyler, the entire tour has been canceled.
The message from Sturgill reads as follows:
To the fans,
As incredibly disappointing as it is to announce, A Good Look’n Tour is officially cancelled. All remaining shows will not be rescheduled to ensure everyone is refunded their money as soon as possible.
There was much optimistic desire behind the scenes to reschedule postponed dates and offer refunds to anyone who desired or could not attend the new date. However no one can accurately predict when it might actually be possible to perform those shows in a safe and responsible manner and I personally would not feel good about putting thousands of people in an arena any time this year.
I’d very much like to personally thank all the fans, my band & crew, and the entire Tyler Childers camp for the limited amount of beautiful time we got to share together on the road this year. I look forward to getting myself healthy and a bright future full of new music to play for you when we can all be together again.
From AEG Presents: Tickets purchased will automatically be refunded from the ticketing company in approximately 30 days. For purchases made in-person at a box office please contact the venue directly.
– Team Tyler
Not really a surprise.
It was probably pretty ambitious to start rescheduling shows so soon without any real grasp of totality of this pandemic situation, although many artists have. Not to mention, Sturgill himself tested positive for the virus.
We recently saw Eric Church say that he probably wouldn’t start touring again until summer/fall of NEXT year and it appears as though Sturgill Simpson and Tyler Childers are also in the camp of artists that don’t want to rush back and risk the lives of their fans.
It sucks, but that’s the hand we’ve been dealt. This was undoubtedly one of the tours that I was most looking forward to this year, as were many others, but at the end of the day, you can’t put anything above the safety of the fans, the artists themselves, the crew, and everyone else involved.
One thing is for sure though… when we do finally all get back to these concerts, it’s going to be ELECTRIC.
This whole thing’s been like a snow day, but your mom says you’re too sick to go outside and play. So ya just kinda sit there with your mittens on and pout.
