** UPDATE: Due to current restrictions issued by the Ontario government and continued uncertainty surrounding Covid-19, the Ontario portion of the Love Someone tour has been rescheduled for this fall. Original tickets will remain valid for entry on the rescheduled date. Ticket holders can contact the box office directly for further questions or concerns regarding tickets and refunds if required. Although this isn’t the outcome we hoped for we’re still looking forward to touring as soon as it’s safe to do so.**
As some of you have already heard all of the Ontario dates on the Love Someone tour are unfortunately being postponed until the fall. Although we do not have all confirmed details or dates yet we have seen some posts in the Johnny Reid Fans Facebook group so wanted to come on here and try and shed a little light.
For those who are not aware, that Facebook group is not an official page run by Johnny Reid, management or anyone from the extended team. That is why you do not see us post any official news there.
We learned there might be a chance the dates would be postponed when the government announced the new province restrictions due to the Omicron variant in December. However, we are not in a position to announce details until we're asked to. There are a lot of moving parts and the promoter of the tour is working hard to organize it all.
As soon as we're given the go ahead all details will be posted on johnnyreid.com and official Johnny Reid social media accounts. We have confirmed that refunds will be made available to anyone that does not wish to or is not able to hold onto their ticket for the rescheduled date.
Please be assured that nobody is paid to put on a show until after the show happens. Revenue from ticket sales will remain in the box office at every individual venue until that happens.
We understand many of you may think Johnny's decision to tour was made too early. Like you, we are all anxious to get back to a sense of normalcy. There are many people involved that depend on live music to support their families. In addition to Johnny this includes but is not limited to venue & box office staff, local crew & security, bus drivers, management & record label employees, booking agency staff, merchandise suppliers & designers, bus & truck drivers, musicians and sound engineers to name a few. We will continue to make plans to put on shows as soon as possible.
At this point, the Love Someone tour will begin on March 15th in Winnipeg Manitoba. We are doing everything we can to move ahead with dates from there as safely as possible. If anything changes from now until then we will let you know as soon as we have confirmed details. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you there. We truly can not wait.
On behalf of Johnny & everyone at Halo Entertainment Group
