“To our friends and fans in America:
Yesterday, not 20 minutes after exiting the airport in Los Angeles, the administration announced a ban on travel between Europe and the United States in an effort to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus. After spending the last few weeks on the road in Europe, and seeing how the situation has escalated there, we feared this was a possibility, but never did we imagine it would happen this fast.
If we stay in America any longer, there is a real possibility that neither I, Daniel, nor Elliott, will be able to return home. Also, given how rapidly things are progressing, it would be selfish and short sighted for us to continue with this tour. We don’t want to be the ones spreading this disease even further. For those reasons, we have decided to pull out of the upcoming tour and go home. We wouldn’t have come all this way just to turn around, disappoint countless people and lose tens of thousands of dollars if we didn’t feel this wasn’t the the only option left for us.
It is my understanding that the entire tour will be postponed and rescheduled for when the world rights itself. We have every intention of being a part of it and making this up to you. Until then – Stay healthy. Stay safe. We love you.
Daniel, Elliott and Joe”
