"There is no perfect solution," event organizers wrote in the rescheduling announcement.
The 13th annual Record Store Day (RSD), originally scheduled for April 18, has been postponed until June 20 due to the growing threat of coronavirus, organizers announced this morning.
The RSD website already reflects this change, with the countdown clock showing it is now 98 days away. The date change for the worldwide celebration -- which promotes thousands of independent music retailers -- will be enacted globally, according to the organizers.
It joins a lengthy list of events that have been cancelled or postponed due to concern over the virus. There are now more than 125,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus globally, according to the World Health Organization, with that number rising daily.
