"Like so many of our friends, we have made the difficult choice to reschedule some of our #Ocean2020Tour dates out of consideration for the safety of our fans, our band and crew and venues nationwide," Lady Antebellum's caption read. "Tickets previously purchased will be honored for the rescheduled dates listed listed when you swipe. If you have any other questions about tickets, you are advised to reach out to point of purchase. Stay safe and we can’t wait to see you out on the road."

The Ocean 2020 Tour was originally slated to begin on May 21 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The trek will now start on July 2 in Sacramento, California and run through Oct. 2 in Albuquerque. Lady Antebellum originally announce the tour in January in support of their November 2019 album, Ocean.

"After our Vegas residency and working on this record for the past year we are itching to get back out on the road and see how the fans gravitate to some of the deeper cuts off of Ocean," group member Charles Kelley said at the time. "We've missed those huge crowd sing-alongs and we are looking forward to having Jake Owen and Maddie & Tae light up the stage every night."
