They say “the show must go on,” but that’s not the case for tonight’s Brett Young’s concert in Oslo, Norway.

The “Catch” singer took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message with his Norwegian fans, informing them that he will be unable to perform in Oslo as originally planned.

“Hey guys, due to a last minute government decision, tonight’s show in Oslo is unable to happen,” he captioned the social media post. “Refunds are available at the point of purchase.”

The singer/songwriter also apologized and promised to return to the country when he could.

“We are so sorry that we didn’t get to perform for you tonight, but we hope to be back very soon,” he wrote.

Young was scheduled to perform at Parkteatret Scene in Oslo, Norway, however, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, the Norwegian government made the decision to cancel or postpone large planned events, such as concerts and sporting events. The decision was made after the Nordic country reported its first untraced cases of coronavirus, signaling that community spread was taking place.

While overseas, Young is also scheduled to take part in the C2C Festival. He currently has shows scheduled in Glasgow, United Kingdom (3/13), Dublin, Ireland (3/14) and London, United Kingdom (3/15).
