Sam Hunt’s summer “Southside Tour” has been cancelled. The tour was supposed to begin on July 10 in Maine, wrapping up in Georgia on October 10, with opening acts Kip Moore, Travis Denning and rising singer-songwriter Ernest hitting the road along with Hunt. 

Sam apparently postponed the tour this week without any formal announcement, but local news stations began reporting cancelled stops in their cities. And Sam’s opening acts have been commenting on the cancelled tour via their social media. Travis wrote on Instagram, “I wish the Southside Summer Tour could happen, but I know for the safety of all of us, decisions get made that aren’t the easiest.”  Added Ernest, “Sam Hunt tour officially canceled…I was really looking forward to getting out there to play for y’all at some point on the Southside Tour, but that’s just not gonna happen like we thought.”

There’s no word yet on whether the tour will be rescheduled.
