Rolling Stones Postpone North American Tour Due To Coronavirus
The Rolling Stones‘ 2020 No Filter Tour of North America has been postponed due to the coronavirus COVID-19 worldwide pandemic. No new dates have been announced as of press time but ticketholders are urged to “hold onto their original tickets and await further information.”
Originally scheduled to begin in San Diego on May 8, The Stones were also slated to perform in Vancouver, Minneapolis, Nashville, Austin, Dallas, Orchard Park (New York), Detroit, Louisville, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, St. Louis and Charlotte before the run came to a close in Tampa on July 9. 2020 marks the second year in a row the band needed to postpone a North American tour, as last year frontman Mick Jagger underwent a successful medical procedure that necessitated the band rescheduling a 17-date run.
