Live Nation to suspend all tours across Canada because of coronavirus

Live Nation will officially suspend all tours across Canada due to the growing coronavirus outbreak.

According to Billboard, the American events company will instruct all touring shows to return home, effective March 13.

Live Nation allegedly told employees that it will re-evaluate the decision at the beginning of April, with the goal of resuming touring in May or June.

The company is also instructing its employees to work remotely.

Elton John, Niall Horan, Billie Eilish, Milky Chance and Miranda Lambert are just some of the tours that will be affected in Canada.

With many performers such as Pearl Jam, Zac Brown Band and Avi Kaplan already moving to delay or cancel their tours, the decision is somewhat unsurprising.

Live Nation is expected to announce the news on the company's social media channels imminently.
