Brantley Gilbert has made the tough decision to postpone his March Fire’t Up Tour dates amid the global outbreak of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus.
“BG Nation, right now we’re asking the same questions y’all are about this virus and what it means for all of us, but we do know we don’t want to cause extra worry or stress…” Gilbert explained in an Instagram post to fans.
“So we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone shows now through the end of March on our Fire’t Up Tour,” he added. “Hold on to your tickets cause we’re working on finding a date we can come back and play for ya…. Love y’all…. Stay safe and we’ll see y’all soon….”
