Slipknot has postponed their Asian tour including Knotfest Japan. Whitesnake has postponed their Japanese tour as well. Sons Of Apollo have postponed the remaining dates of their European tour and Ozzy Osbourne has canceled his appearance at the upcoming SXSW festival. SXSW organizers have stated that the annual event is still scheduled, but that could change if circumstances affect the safety of the crowd. SXSW organizers said they are monitoring the situation and working with local, state and federal agencies. Apple, Netflix and Amazon have all pulled out of the festival over fears of the coronavirus now called COVID-19. Nearly 5,000 people have signed a petition asking the SXSW organizers to cancel or postpone the event. Asian countries, closer to the original outbreak of the virus have worked to cancel festivals, concerts and large gatherings to help slow down the spread of the virus. It appears to be just a matter of time before other countries, including the U.S., will begin to postpone such events as well, to limit people’s exposure to the illness.
The entire HRH AOR 8 FESTIVAL HAS BEEN POSTPONED which was set to include artists like Faster Pussycat, Enuff Z’Nuff, Great White, D.A.D., Autograph, Bonfire, and Eclipse.
XS ROCK will try to keep fans up to date with any concert and tour postponements and cancellations as they become available.
