MILWAUKEE (WLUK) -- Country star Kenny Chesney is postponing his 2020 tour -- including a date at Miller Park in Milwaukee -- because of the coronavirus.

"(W)hile we wait to see how this terrible virus is going to impact our country, I think it’s only fair to move these first several dates now. We are figuring some of this out as we go, but I know people buy airline tickets, book hotel rooms -- and I wanted to try to give everyone as much time to sort that out as possible," Chesney said in a news release.

Chesney was to play at the Milwaukee Brewers' stadium on April 15.

The Brewers organization says Chesney intends to reschedule his tour. Fans are asked to hold on to their tickets.
