In a heartfelt message penned as a “tour update” for her fans on Twitter, Maren Morris announces both the cancellation of her RSVP tour, alongside her work on an upcoming third album.
Sad news today for Maren Morris fans looking forward to her RSVP Tour in 2021. After having to reschedule “half of the dates” and vast uncertainty over vaccine release timelines, the country star has opted to cancel the anticipated RSVP Tour outright. She took to Twitter today with her letter in graphic form to alert followers.
“Hi, darlings,” Morris starts off in the letter for her fans. “There is so much hope with this vaccine being distributed in 2021, but we are still unsure of when we will be able to do the tour next year,” the country star continues.
“With the prospect of, yet again, rescheduling half of the dates already becoming a reality, I have decided to cancel the RSVP Tour. You will receive a full refund at point of purchase,” Morris clarifies.
“I truly appreciate your patience on this. I am in the midst of working on my third record, so I hope we can all come together and enjoy live shows safely again soon,” she ends.
“Love you so much. -M.”
Maren Morris Shows Abundance of Caution Following Recent COVID Statements
The sadness Maren Morris must feel is palpable within her letter to fans. While the RSVP Tour being cancelled comes as a huge blow, Morris is hoping the development of a third album will give them cause to celebrate. That celebration may have to wait, however, as Morris reveals no further details on the upcoming release.
Morris’ decision follows a previous tweet in which she expressed deep frustration over the loss of Charley Pride to COVID-19.
I don’t want to jump to conclusions because no family statement has been made. But if this was a result of the CMAs being indoors, we should all be outraged. Rest in power, Charley. https://t.co/rSIbsLNwYj— MAREN MORRIS (@MarenMorris) December 12, 2020
While the tweet has since been removed by Morris, Outsider.com covered the debacle as it unfolded. Morris attended the live event herself, as did many other country stars. The indoor event was held at the Music City Center in Nashville, TN. CMA opted for a live audience, as well. Whether these decisions of both Morris’ and CMAs during the deadly global pandemic influenced today’s decision is unknown.
