Pearl Jam pospone una parte de su gira

El grupo originario de Seattle que es referencia del movimiento del Grunge y el Rock Alternativo, Pearl Jam anuncia lamentable noticia, pues con frustración y lamento la agrupación anunció la cancelación de una parte de su actual gira mundial del nuevo disco “Gigaton”, Estados Unidos y Canadá son los países afectado, la causa es el coronavirus que hoy por la mañana se declaró pandemia por la OMS.

Fue a través de su cuenta oficial de Instagram donde se publicó una imagen acompañada del comunicado en texto, en donde rescatamos;

“Los niveles de riesgo para nuestra audiencia y sus comunidades son simplemente demasiado altos como para sentirnos cómodos”, declaró la banda en el comunicado. “Encima de eso, también tenemos un grupo único de apasionados fans que viajan grandes distancias. Siempre nos hemos sentido honrados por eso y respetamos su energía y su devoción. Sin embargo, en este caso, los viajes son algo que debe evitarse”.

As residents of the city of Seattle, we’ve been hit hard and have witnessed firsthand how quickly these disastrous situations can escalate. Our kids’ schools have closed along with universities and businesses. It’s been brutal and it’s gonna get worse before it gets better. So we are being told that being part of large gatherings is high on the list of things to avoid as this global health crisis is now beginning to affect all of our lives. Unfortunately, communing in large groups is a huge part of what we do as a band and the tour we’ve been busy planning for months is now in jeopardy… We have and will always keep the safety and well-being of our supporters as top priority. So it is with deep frustration and regret that we are forced to make this most unfortunate of announcements… This scheduled first leg of our PJ/Gigaton tour will need to be postponed and shows rescheduled for a later date. We’ve worked hard with all our management and business associates to find other solutions or options but the levels of risk to our audience and their communities is simply too high for our comfort level. Add to that we also have a unique group of passionate fans who travel far and wide. We’ve always been humbled by this and respect their energies and devotion. However in this case, travel is something to avoid. It certainly hasn’t helped that there’s been no clear messages from our government regarding people’s safety and our ability to go to work. Having no examples of our national health department’s ability to get ahead of this, we have no reason to believe that it will be under control in the coming weeks ahead. Again, here in Seattle what we are witnessing we would not wish for anyone. What we do wish for the rest of the country is that they can avoid the harsh negative effects of this and retain their sense of community and take care of one another. Just as we look forward to our next concerts and the ability to gather together and play loud songs as energized as ever. We are so sorry… And deeply upset.. If anyone out there feels the same based on this news, we share that emotion with you. – Ed & Pearl Jam
