This summer was supposed to bring with it a crowd-pleasing tour involving Chicago and Rick Springfield, but the tour has been postponed due to ongoing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

The classic band announced the news on Thursday:

Rick Springfield announced that due to scheduling issues in looking ahead to his 2021 plans, he will unfortunately not be able to take part in the new shows.

Also affected by this news was Dauzat St. Marie, the Los Angeles singer/songwriter duo that was to open the tour.

We won’t candy coat this. This feels like a wrecking ball to our very souls to report. Our Summer arena tour with Chicago and Rick Springfield has now officially been filed amongst the multitude of collateral tour losses due to this wretched pandemic. We all had high hopes that the silver lining from the last disappointing tour rescheduling announcement was that the tour was still happening in 2021, but that silver lining was merely a mirage. If you know us, you know we are the reigning champs at finding silver linings, but we are coming up short today. It’s very difficult to put into words the loss that we are feeling right now. This tour was not just the biggest and brightest opportunity of our careers, but it also represented what was set to be our grand triumphant return to the stage after a very long and exhausting breast cancer battle. We wanted this so badly we could taste it, but it truly warms our hearts that you all wanted this very badly for us as well. Thank you so much for the support and the virtual high fives along the way. This is definitely a setback…. but we are no stranger to setback. This is us… defeated, deflated, but DETERMINED. If you had tickets to any of the shows, LiveNation will send you an email with details to get your refund. You can also visit for more information.
