Political leaders may still be debating when America should reopen for business, but locally, it doesn’t seem like the concert industry will restart anytime soon.

A slew of Tampa Bay concerts in late May and June have just been postponed, moved or canceled, suggesting large-scale gatherings may still be months away.

Among Tuesday’s moves: Country star Sam Hunt, who has pushed his June 12 concert at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa from June 12 to Oct. 9. Tickets for the old show will be good at the new one. Click here.

Two shows at Tampa’s Amalie Arena were impacted on Tuesday. First is the Millennium Tour with Omarion, Bow Wow, Ashanti and Soulja Boy, which is not only being postponed from May 1 to Aug. 1, but moved from Amalie to the Yuengling Center in Tampa.

In Clearwater, Todd Rundgren has postponed two shows on June 10 and 11 at the Nancy and David Bilheimer Capitol Theatre until Aug. 4 and 5. And while the venue has made no announcement, King Crimson has announced it is planning to postpone its 2020 North American tour until 2021. That would include a June 4 date at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
