Promoters cite production and logistics issues.
Randy Travis has canceled his 2019 tour it was announced today. The official reason cited was due to “production issues,” Billboard reports.
A rep for Travis shared that the decision was made due to production and content issues and that the singer’s team plans to focus on the remaining shows of the tour.
Which means low ticket sales.
Three dates of the original mini run of 12 shows are still ‘on” according to the statement put out by Team Travis— Victory Theatre in Evansville, Indiana, on Oct. 17, Island View Casino in Gulfport, Mississippi, on Oct. 19 and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 28 .
With over twenty albums, 16 number one hits and 30 top tens, Travis is an icon and trailblazer. He is known as a major force in the neotraditional country movement of the mid-80’s.
During a serious struggle with cardiomyopathy in 2013, the legendary country singer’s heart stopped beating, and intensive care doctors at a Texas hospital shocked him back to life. Three days later, his family learned he’d suffered a massive stroke according to USA Today.
