The US singer and songwriter Richard Marx has canceled his concerts in Europe because of the new corona virus. There is a risk that he is stuck in a country because of the virus and therefore cannot continue his tour, said the 56-year-old in an Instagram post. All concerts planned throughout Europe are affected by the cancellation – including in Berlin and Leipzig.
Because of these “unpredictable travel conditions” in view of the current global health crisis, the “Limitless” tour will be postponed to autumn 2020, as the music company BMG announced on Tuesday. On Monday (March 16th) Marx wanted to start his tour of Germany in Hamburg. Six concerts across Germany are affected by the cancellation – in addition to Berlin and Leipzig, Hamburg, Düsseldorf, Munich and Frankfurt. When looking for replacement dates, the new tour should be planned largely similarly, Marx promised on Instagram.
He was very sorry for the cancellations. “It was a very difficult and balanced decision.” According to his own statement, Marx has not played in Europe for about eight years. He himself is healthy and is not afraid of getting sick because he is not a risk group. He cares about his audience. “I didn’t take it lightly.”
