NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Bon Jovi has now joined countless other bands and artists and canceled its 2020 tour dates

“Due to the ongoing global pandemic, it is no longer feasible for Bon Jovi to tour this summer," read a statement from Bon Jovi regarding the Bon Jovi 2020 tour, which included Bryan Adams. "Given these difficult times, we have made the decision to cancel the tour entirely. This will enable ticketholders to get refunds to help pay their bills or buy groceries."

The statement continued, "These are trying times. You’ve always been there for us and we’ll always be there for you. We look forward to seeing everyone again on tour when we can all safely be together.  We will continue to send out news and updates on Bon Jovi touring in the weeks and months to come."

Bon Jovi was slated to perform July 14 at Newark's Prudential Center, and July 27 and July 28 at Madison Square Garden.

Fans understood the band's decision, with Twitter user @happyjovigirl representing the overall reaction, writing, "Thank you for caring about your fans, standing up for us and doing the right thing. Love you all and can't wait to be together again at a concert when it is safe again. Be safe and be well. I am so proud to be a fan of wonderful, caring people."
