It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise anymore to see an anticipated tour postponed or canceled as a result of global concern over the coronavirus pandemic, but it’s still jarring to see the announcements — and on Tuesday, the Rolling Stones announced that their upcoming (and highly anticipated) No Filter U.S. tour dates have been postponed.

The original slate of dates were to start in early May:

MAY 2020

08 – SDCCU Stadium SAN DIEGO, CA
12 – BC Place VANCOUVER, BC
16 – U.S. Bank Stadium MINNEAPOLIS, MN
20 – Nissan Stadium NASHVILLE, TN
24 – Circuit of The Americas AUSTIN, TX
29 – Cotton Bowl Stadium DALLAS, TX

JULY 2020

05 – Raymond James Stadium TAMPA, FL
09 – Mercedes-Benz Stadium ATLANTA, GA

The tour was to be an extension of the 2019 No Filter Tour, which was a masterful and joyful rock and roll history lesson — but now, that lesson will have to wait a bit as the world focuses its attention on ending the pandemic.

In the meantime, more and more artists — among them Chris Martin of Coldplay, Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard, metal band Code Orange and Dropkick Murphys, among others — have taken to livestreaming gigs and performances via social media, which seems to be a pretty great way to pass the time while self-isolating or maintaining social distance from the safety and comfort of our homes.
