“Understand that this tour is logged out to the Summer of ’22. And in the Summer of ’22, possibly the biggest gig of my career comes together to be the end of this Stadium Tour,” he says as he remains committed to executing the planned tour…which has already broken and set records in every city it’s played.

“We’ve got three sellouts that we know that we’ve got to go back and get. Four other stadiums we know we’ve got to go back and get. So if the green flag does drop in ’21, know that we’re twice as busy in ’21 than we planned to [be] just to make up the dates and keep the ones that we have,” he explained during a press conference last week. The three sellouts he mentions – NFL stadium events in Charlotte, Cincinnati and Las Vegas originally planned for this past spring and this month – are rescheduled for next year.
