Brett Young has joined the ever-growing list of artists who are being forced to postpone their tours due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The country hitmaker took to social media on Friday (April 10) to share that he is postponing upcoming dates of his The Chapters Tour.
“I am so incredibly bummed out to have to announce the rescheduling of all April and May shows of The Chapters Tour,” Young shared in a statement. “As much as we wanna see you, we want to keep everyone as safe as possible right now. We’re working on the new dates as we speak and we’ll let you know as soon as they are confirmed.”
“I miss y’all more than you know,” he continued. “Thank you so much for your understanding during this crazy time and we’ll see you all soon.”
The announcement comes after Young self-quarantined on his tour bus for 14 days upon returning from his European tour. Though he was not experiencing any symptoms of the virus, the superstar played it safe so he didn’t possibly infect his wife or young daughter.
“I might be on the over cautious side of things for most people, but I’m hiding out on the bus just trying to make sure I didn’t bring anything back from Europe to my family,” Young told Big D & Bubba. “So me and the pup are hiding out.”
The country superstar was on tour in Europe when travel bans began to take effect. He quickly decided to head back to the states after his shows started to get cancelled due to government restrictions on large gatherings.
“My luggage is still sitting unpacked in our garage,” he elaborated. “Until I can get my hands on a test to make sure I’m good I’m gonna give it two weeks. The last thing I want to do is give our little 4-month-old something.”
After weeks away from his family, Young was finally able to return home to his baby girl and his wife Taylor on March 27, just days after he celebrated his 39th birthday (March 23) in self-isolation.
