Old Dominion has pulled the plug on their upcoming overseas performances due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The group shared the news on social media Friday (March 6), apologizing to fans and citing the safety and security of their entire team as their main concern.

“After much consideration, we have decided to withdraw from our upcoming performances as part of the C2C Country to Country Music Festival in Berlin, Amsterdam, Dublin, London, and Glasgow,” the group wrote. “We are so sorry to disappoint our fans overseas; however, with the growing uncertainty and unpredictable nature of the virus that is spreading throughout the world, the safety and security of our entire team is the top priority. We are forever grateful for every opportunity we get to witness just how far our music is reaching, and we will be back across the world as soon as we can. Much love and thank you for your support.”

C2C: Country to Country Music Festival is scheduled to take place in cities across Europe Friday, March 13 through Sunday, March 15. Other artists currently scheduled to perform include Eric Church, Luke Combs, Darius Rucker, The Cadillac Three, Runaway June, Brett Young and many more.

According to a post from the C2C: Country to Country Music Festival, UK-based country duo The Shires will take Old Dominion‘s place performing at the festival.

The news comes as cases of the coronavirus surpass 100,000 worldwide.
