Tim McGraw’s Here On Earth Tour has been scraped.
The superstar delivered the disappointing news to fans on Wednesday (May 21), explaining that it was a difficult decision to make but that the health and safety of fans was his number one concern.
“I hope my live shows are proof enough of how much I absolutely love performing for you guys. I’m so sad to have to cancel this year’s Here on Earth Tour but everyone’s safety has to be the top priority,” McGraw shared across his social media channels. “We’re working with our teams to figure out when and how we can get back out on the road and see you all safely. In the meantime, we’re looking for some new ways to connect with you and get more music out.”
The Here On Earth Tour was slated to kick off on July 10 and feature Midland and Ingrid Andress. The trek was also scheduled to include two stadium dates with reigning CMA Vocalist of the Year Luke Combs also on the bill.
McGraw is one of several artists who announced plans to either cancel or postpone tours this week in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cancellation comes just days after the Louisiana native shared his touching new single, “I Called Mama.”
