Brantley Gilbert has made the tough decision to postpone his March Fire’t Up Tour dates amid the global outbreak of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus.

“BG Nation, right now we’re asking the same questions y’all are about this virus and what it means for all of us, but we do know we don’t want to cause extra worry or stress…” Gilbert explained in an Instagram post to fans.

“So we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone shows now through the end of March on our Fire’t Up Tour,” he added. “Hold on to your tickets cause we’re working on finding a date we can come back and play for ya…. Love y’all…. Stay safe and we’ll see y’all soon….”

POSTPONED DATES:
Mar 19 / Nampa, ID / Ford Idaho Center Arena
Mar 20 / Portland, OR / Moda Center
Mar 21 / Tacoma, WA / Tacoma Dome
Mar 26 / Ontario, CA / Citizens Business Bank Arena
Mar 27 / Fresno, CA / Save Mart Center
Mar 28 / Las Vegas, NV / The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan

All previously purchased tickets for the tour will be honored for rescheduled shows, or refunded at point of purchase. At this time there is no word on the rescheduled dates.

This postponement comes after several other country artists including Kenny Chesney, Chris Stapleton, Whiskey Myers, Dan + Shay and more were forced to cancel or postpone their shows due to the current global health crisis.
