The Dan + Shay concert scheduled for Thursday night (March 12) at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center has been rescheduled.
The move comes after the venue closed to undergo “extensive cleaning and sanitization” due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
Dan + Shay said they were heartbroken over the news and took to Twitter to share a message to their disappointed fans.
“Philly, we have been looking forward to this show since the day it was announced, and are devastated that it will not be happening tonight,” the Grammy-winning duo wrote. “We love this so much that we flew in a day early to enjoy it, but unfortunately we will not be able to perform due to the arena being shut down.”
Dan + Shay went on to confirm that the new date for the show is Monday, September 28 and that all tickets previously purchased will be honored for the newly scheduled event.
“It’s a sad day for all of us, but there is peace in knowing the decision was made to protect those who planned to attend the show,” they concluded. “We promise to make it extra special when we return.”
The postponement of the show is just one of many happening this week as the U.S. and countries around the globe try to stop the spread of COVID-19.
