The coronavirus will not stop Kip Moore!
Despite mass cancellations of music and sporting events across the world today, 2020 CMC Rocks Qld co-headliner Kip Moore is on the his way to Australia!
Moore confirmed in an instagram post at 9:15am Australian EST this morning that his shows next week will proceed as planned.
“We are all well aware of what is happening in the world right now,” he said.
“I am not insensitive to the people who have been affected by this.”
“Me and the guys are choosing to trust Australian health officials in saying we are good to go. Everything is good.”
“We’re headed your way and we are going to try and give you the best fucking show we can.”
Following US President Donald Trump’s European travel ban announcement, the Country to Country festival in the UK and Ireland was cancelled overnight.
Artists such as Luke Combs and Eric Church who were headlining the event have returned home.
Earlier this week, the promoters of CMC Rocks Qld issued a statement saying the event would still go ahead as planned next week.
Moore is also playing shows at Margret Court Arena in Melbourne on March 17 and The Hordern in Sydney on March 18.
