As the world continues to battle the COVID-19 outbreak, recent changes across the United States and its impact on communities are causing Alter Bridge to postpone its upcoming headline tour with special guests Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia.
The band released the following statement:
“To the entire Alter Bridge family:
“We hoped that it wouldn’t come to this, but as some of you have already heard; unfortunately, due to recent changes around the globe created by the recent Covid-19 situation, the May headline tour of the United States with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia will be postponed. The health and safety of everyone attached to these shows (fans, artists, crew members, venue staff, etc) is our main priority. More information regarding rescheduled dates will be available in the future. We look forward to the time when we can all come together and celebrate music as the community and family we are. Until then, Stay Home, Stay Healthy and Stay Safe …”
In an effort to show support to everyone being affected by the global pandemic, vocalist/guitarist Myles Kennedy recently performed acoustic in partnership with American Songwriter for its “Behind the Mic” series. Aside from discussing songwriting and his musical inspirations in front of a live global audience on Facebook, Kennedy performed songs from various projects including Alter Bridge, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, and his debut solo album from 2018. The live event has been viewed over 470,000 times on Facebook and is now live on YouTube.
