Michael Bublé revolves around Texas gigs over COVID-19 safety concerns | Music

Michael Bublé has canceled a future Texas gig due to safety concerns of COVID-19.

The “Haven’t Met” hit maker claimed that he had no choice but to withdraw his scheduled performance at the Frank Irwin Center in Austin on September 20 as part of his US tour. There is not enough space for the venue.

In a statement on a social media page, the 46-year-old singer wrote: “I had to cancel the September 20th show in Austin, Texas. I’m really sorry I always loved playing there.

“My commitment to complete my tour after all postponements was agreed on the condition that it does not endanger one person.

“I tried, but unfortunately I couldn’t promote this at the Austin show. I had to cancel. My conscience and heart didn’t allow it.”

The venue wrote in their own statement: “The University of Texas is confident in the health and safety protocols and procedures being implemented for large-scale events, but is not in a position to extend them as Michael Bublé requested.

“Therefore, the artist decided to cancel Austin’s date.”

Michael, who had to re-schedule his North American tour last year, had previously encouraged fans to stay home as much as possible to “flatten the epidemic” of the coronavirus.

He said in a video message last year:

“You can’t stop it. I think we all understand it. This isn’t stopping it, it’s our medical system, our hospital must inevitably take care of it. It’s about making sure you can handle all the people who don’t.

“I really think that by following the established protocols (social distance, hand washing, self-isolation), this can be delayed and save millions of lives.”
