AceShowbiz - Veteran singer Richard Marx is "super bummed" after deciding to delay his sold out European tour due to growing fears about the coronavirus crisis.
The "Right Here Waiting" star had been due to kick off his first trek across Europe in almost a decade this month, but the gigs have now been rescheduled to the autumn.
In a candid video message posted on his Instagram page late on Sunday, March 08, he explained the difficult call was made after discussions with officials from his management team, concert promoters, and agents.
"We all decided that it was for everyone's own good, it was for the best interest of the health of everyone I'm counting on to come see me play," Marx shared.
"I'm super bummed, selfishly. I was really, really excited about this tour... Every show was sold out. I haven't played in Europe in eight or nine years at least. The fact you guys supported this tour the way you did made me even more excited to play."
"I did not take this lightly," the 56-year-old concluded. "It's a total f***ing drag. More importantly I hope everyone out there is healthy and safe."
Marx is the latest artist to rethink touring plans as a result of the coronavirus outbreak, which has led to shows being scrapped by the likes of Halsey, Avril Lavigne, Green Day, Ciara, and Louis Tomlinson in recent weeks.
