LA punk rock legends Bad Religion have announced the cancellation of all live shows for this year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
In a statement released earlier today, the band wrote:
We are grateful and humbled by the unwavering support from all our fans, every venue and festival that invited us to play, and especially those who have invested resources to see us perform live all over the world this year. As everyone is well aware, the ongoing hazard of Covid-19 has made it unsafe to gather in large groups. Therefore, to maintain the health of our fans, crew, and ourselves, Bad Religion will not be playing any shows in 2020. You may claim refunds or vouchers depending on the market; please check in with your local promoter and point of purchase. We will carefully monitor how this pandemic progresses; when it is safe for all of us to gather together, we will return. Until then, be safe, and take care of each other.
Bad Religion’s pre-Coronavirus plans for 2020 included stops at ‘Bay Fest’ and ‘Berlin Crash Fest,’ plus shows with Suicidal Tendencies (who have cancelled/postponed all of their shows through Aug.), Comeback Kid, U.K. Subs and more.
