Lady Antebellum’s Ocean 2020 Tour will no longer take place. The headlining run was scheduled to launch this summer and feature Jake Owen and Maddie & Tae.
The trio shared the heartbreaking news on Tuesday (May 19) in a heartfelt message to fans.
“Out of respect and love for our fans, crews and families, we’ve made the very difficult decision to not move forward with the #Ocean2020Tour this summer with @JakeOwenOfficial and @MaddieAndTae,” they wrote. “This decision breaks our hearts but the health and well-being of those we love is our first priority. ”

Lady Antebellum went on to share that there are currently no new tour plans on the table, even though they would love to return to the road again.
“We dream about the day we can step back on stage, see all your faces and hear all of your voices singing back to us. Y’all are the reason we do what we do and we find peace knowing that it will be even more special once we get through this together – and we will,” the Grammy-winning group assured. “While we don’t have future plans to share just yet, we are working with our team around the clock to figure out when and how we can safely get on the road to see all of you. Until then, we’re going to continue to find ways to keep the music playing and stay connected with you.”
The Ocean 2020 Tour was originally slated to launch on May 21, however, the trio recently shifted the tour’s start date to July 2. Now, the entire run has been axed due to the global pandemic.
