Luke Bryan Delays 2020 Proud to Be Right Here Tour Until July
Luke Bryan's 2020 tour plans are the latest to fall to the novel coronavirus. The star's Proud to Be Right Here Tour is being pushed back in response to the pandemic declared due to the virus' spread.
Bryan's 2020 Proud to Be Right Here Tour was originally scheduled to begin on May 28 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Per a Tuesday (April 7) Instagram post from Bryan, however, the trek will now begin on July 10, in Orange Beach, Ala.
The list of tour dates below reflects the changes to Bryan's trek. Morgan Wallen, Runaway June and Caylee Hammack are all opening select shows on the 2020 Proud to Be Right Here Tour.
In addition to delaying his 2020 tour plans, Bryan is also pushing back the release of his new album, Born Here, Live Here, Die Here, from April to August. Originally scheduled for release on April 24, the album will now arrive on Aug. 7.
"What an incredibly confusing and scary time our world is facing right now, and it is important we continue to follow the guidelines we have been given and do our part to keep everyone safe. With that in mind, we are choosing to stay home at this time so we can have fun sharing this music and tour with you this summer," Bryan says in a statement. "I truly believe that music can provide all forms of emotional connections for everyone and I can’t wait to get on the road and share these new songs with you soon."
