In November 2019, Reba McEntire surprised fans by announcing her plans to embark on a tour in early 2020. “I’m so excited to get back out on the road in 2020 and visit some places I haven’t been to in a while!” she said.
This marked McEntire’s first tour announcement in some time. Though the “Fancy” singer has maintained a live stage presence by performing for her Las Vegas residency with Brooks & Dunn for the past several years.
Fans were excited to see McEntire on her tour, and eagerly snatched up tickets. The first show was scheduled for March 20 in Evansville, Indiana, with the final show being on May 9 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
However, her entire trek has now been pushed back out of caution in the midst of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Now, fans will have to wait until the summer to catch McEntire on tour.
“For the safety of everyone, we have decided to postpone our new arena tour until July,” read a statement on McEntire’s social media accounts.
McEntire said all tickets would be honored at the rescheduled dates.
“...stay safe and take care of you and your loved ones. We’ll get through this together,” read the end of McEntire’s message.
Now, the first date of McEntire’s tour is scheduled for July 9 in Huntsville, Alabama. It will now conclude on August 8 in Evansville, Indiana.
So far, McEntire’s April Vegas residency dates with Brooks & Dunn will take place as scheduled. You can see the full list of her upcoming live performances here.
We’re sorry to hear that McEntire was forced to push her tour back, but certainly understand the reason. Please continue to practice good hand-washing techniques, stay home if you’re sick, limit exposure to large groups, and keep all surfaces sanitary.
Although fans will have to wait a little longer to see McEntire in concert, the wait is well worth it. She excels at live performances, as you can see by watching her performance from the 2019 CMA Awards below.
