As the coronavirus continues to spread, Dead & Company are the latest to cancel their upcoming live performances. The group announced on Tuesday (April 21) that they've made the decision to cancel their 17-date summer tour.

"Because of the global coronavirus outbreak and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have no choice but to cancel Dead & Company's Summer Tour 2020," the band wrote in a statement. "The well-being and safety of our Deadhead community, venue staff and the band’s touring family is of the utmost importance. We also want to get refunds back to our fans while so many are hurting economically. All tickets will be fully refunded at point of purchase."

"We are thankful for your understanding and we look forward to the day when we can all be reunited," the statement concluded. "In the meantime, keep the faith and believe in the power of music. We will return. We will get by. We will survive."

John Mayer joined the Grateful Dead for the group's popular annual tour that launched in 2016.
