It is looking less and less likely that the Walmart AMP will host concerts in 2020.
As of Wednesday morning, 17 shows from the 2020 lineup have canceled or postponed to a later date (and three more cancelled this afternoon), according to the venue’s website.
Rescheduled shows include Maren Morris (rescheduled for June 5, 2021), Steely Dan and Steve Winwood (rescheduled for June 20, 2021), Phish (rescheduled for July 28, 2021) and Dave Matthews Band (rescheduled for Sept. 21, 2021).
Eight shows have been postponed, and will announce new dates later. Those shows include Alanis Morissette, Kenny Chesney, Megadeth & Lamb of God, Backstreet Boys, Chicago, The Black Crowes, Lindsey Stirling, and Disturbed.
A handful of shows are canceled as well, including Journey with Pretenders, Melanie Martinez, Rascal Flatts, King and Country, Old Dominion, Sam Hunt, Nickelback, and
Incubus with 311.
Complications with touring during the COVID-19 outbreak are causing many of the tours that would have brought the shows to town to be cancelled or postponed, which is leading to the cancellation of the local shows.
As of now, no blanket announcement on whether there will be shows at the AMP this year has been made, and it appears as though some promoters are holding out hope that performances scheduled for later this summer may still go on as planned.
Venue officials are in the process of refunding ticketholders to the canceled shows, and those with tickets to the postponed shows have been emailed options for refunds or to hold on to their tickets for the rescheduled dates.
