In a statement, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain and Arnel Pineda say, “There is no greater thrill for us than playing for our incredibly devoted audience, but their safety must come first.
"We would like to thank all doctors, nurses, police, other first responders and essential workers for their heroic efforts, as well as our fans for doing everything possible to stay safe. We would also like to send The Pretenders our best wishes and hope to see them in the future. We will see everyone again as soon as it is safe to tour, and we will share that news as it becomes available. In the meantime, please Don’t Stop Believin’ in the wonder of life and in each other.”
