Zac Brown Band cancels all 2020 dates, including Truist Park

The Zac Brown Band already canceled its spring tour called “The Owl,” and now the band is nixing the rest of its dates for 2020.

ZBB’s “Roar with the Lions” outing was scheduled to launch May 24-25 in New Hampshire, and swing through Truist Park for a hometown show on Aug. 7.

In an Instagram post Friday evening, the band referred to these “unprecedented times, which requires unprecedented decisions.”

Those who purchased tickets through Ticketmaster will automatically receive a refund.

Earlier this week, Brown posted an emotional video in which he said he had to “let go” the majority of his crew because of the spring tour shutdown. Brown admonished those not taking the threat of coronavirus seriously, a point that was reiterated in the band’s tour cancellation notice.

To those of you taking proper steps to keep yourself and those around you healthy, thank you. To those of you still out there not taking this seriously, it’s time to wake up. The longer you wait to self-isolate, the longer entire communities will be out of work and the longer it will take our country to recover.
