Florida Georgia Line Cancels Fall Tour Due To COVID Concerns

Another tour canceled.

This fall seemed like we were going to get a return to normal as far as concerts and touring goes.

But we’ve started to see cancellations trickle in again as COVID cases rise with the spread of the delta variant.

The most notable was Garth Brooks, who announced recently that he was cancelling the remaining shows on his 2021 stadium tour, saying:

“In July, I sincerely thought the pandemic was falling behind us. Now, watching this new wave, I realize we are still in the fight and I must do my part.”

And now, we have another major tour cancellation with Florida Georgia Line announcing that they’re cancelling their 2021 I Love My Country tour, which was scheduled to kick off on September 24 in Atlanta and feature openers Russell Dickerson and Lauren Alaina.

“While we’ve been able to see some of y’all at shows recently, everyone’s continued safety has been weighing heavy on us.

We’re so bummed to have to cancel this tour, but we know in our hearts that we still have to make sure we’re keeping our fans and crew safe. We love y’all and can’t wait to be back out when the time is right.”

The duo also released individual statements on the cancellation:

And from Brian Kelley:

“Everyone’s continued safety has been weighing heavy on us.

To our fans, band, crew, and all of the venues around the country, thank you for your love and support! We couldn’t do what we do without you, and we hope we can all do our part to bring live music back soon.”

The group was still promoting the tour on social media as recently as last week, so that just shows you how quickly things are changing right now.

Hopefully this is the end of the cancellations, but I guess it’s a bummer for anybody who was hoping to hear “New Truck” live in concert for some inexplicable reason.
