I guess this recently released news from the Bon Jovi camp comes as no real surprise. Most of the cities of our nation are still dealing with the dreaded Coronavirus Pandemic and with massive events such as the Comic Con International: San Diego and The BookExpo being cancelled for the year in full, it makes sense to find large scale tours doing the same.
