Tame Impala‘s March 13 performance at San Francisco’s Chase Center has officially been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.
With more than 150 cases of coronavirus confirmed in California, San Francisco authorities have announced a ban on any gatherings of 1000 persons or more.
The ban will last two weeks, until March 21, after which the hiatus on large gatherings will be reassessed.
“We know that this order is disruptive, but it is an important step to support public health,” San Franciso’s mayor has stated. “We’re following the recommendations of public health officials to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community. This order mirrors actions being taken by other local governments and is informed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.”
“All tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date,” promoter another planet has shared, “and refunds are available at place of purchase.”
Kevin Parker and Tame Impala management have yet to issue a formal statement.
With dozens of coronavirus cancellations across the country, the future of Tame Impala‘s 2020 North Amerian Tour remains uncertain.
With the virus expected to peak in the coming months, it is likely this will not be the last postponement.
Impacted concerts include:
-Friday, March 13 – Tame Impala (postponed)
-Saturday, March 14 – Santa Cruz Warriors vs. Austin Spurs (moved to Santa Cruz)*
-Thursday, March 19 – Post Malone (cancelled or postponed – TBD)
-Saturday, March 21 – Bell Biv Devoe & Friends (postponed)
