Zac Brown Band have announced the decision to postpone the spring dates of their Owl Tour, citing “increasing public health concerns” over the spread of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus. The trek originally got underway February 28th in Moline, Illinois, and made five stops before pressing pause.
The next show scheduled to take place was March 12th in St. Louis, Missouri — 13 dates concluding with the group’s April 25th show in Nashville will be affected by the postponement. Rescheduled dates were not immediately available, but tickets to the postponed shows will be honored.
“This was an extremely difficult decision, but the well-being of our fans is always our top priority,” the group wrote on Instagram along with the announcement.

Out of caution and due to increasing public health concerns, Zac Brown Band is postponing the spring 2020 leg of “The Owl Tour.” This was an extremely difficult decision, but the well-being of our fans is always our top priority. Rescheduled dates for all spring shows (through Nashville on April 25) will be announced soon. We ask that our fans retain their tickets as they will be honored on the new dates. At this time, our “Roar With The Lions” Summer 2020 tour dates (commencing in May) will be performed as planned. Thank you for your understanding.
As of now, the group’s summer 2020 Roar With the Lions Tour is expected to continue as normal. Those shows get underway May 24th in Gilford, New Hampshire.
Zac Brown Band are the latest in a series of high-profile tour cancellations over coronavirus concerns, following similar news in recent days from Pearl Jam, Santana, and Madonna. Additionally, there have been several popular events canceled in response to the disease’s spread, including South by Southwest and Ultra Music Festival.
