Dan + Shay Announce 2021 The Arena Tour Dates

Dan + Shay have announced the new 2021 dates for their headlining "The (Arena) Tour."
The 31-date trek will kick off on September 9 in Greensboro, North Carolina at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The duo will then travel across the country making stops in New Orleans, Chicago, Atlanta and more before concluding with a final show in Boston, Massachusetts on December 7.
The duo first launched "The (Arena) Tour" with back-to-back shows in Nashville, Tennessee in early March 2020. Unfortunately, they were forced to postpone the tour due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
"Thank you to our fans for being so patient while we worked through the rescheduling of the (arena) tour," the duo captioned a lengthy post on social media on Tuesday (August 11). "We’re absolutely crushed that it wasn’t able to happen this year, but your safety is more important to us than anything, so we made the difficult decision to move the tour to 2021."
They went on to assure fans that even though it feels like a long time away, it'll come quickly and it'll be worth the wait. All tickets for original shows will be honored at the rescheduled dates, however some of the shows weren't able to be rescheduled.
"We tried everything in our power to include as many as we possibly could, but the global pandemic has left our industry fighting an uphill battle, especially when it comes to logistics," they continue. "If your show is one that has been canceled, or if you are unable to attend a rescheduled date, you can get a refund at your point of purchase."
In conclusion the country duo says, "Just know that we care about every single one of you, and are grateful, as always, for your continued support. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year, but hopefully we’ll become better because of it. Much love to all, and see you on the road in 2021. 💛"
