Kenny Chesney's Chillaxification tour will include some postponed dates, including the May 2 show at U.S. Bank Stadium.

"You can't take risks without really understanding the consequences," Chesney said in a release. "In times of uncertainty, I won't take chances with those I love. I can't imagine, as much as we love being out there playing for the fans, being able to do that through the worry our nation is experiencing."

As of March 12, 11 shows have been postponed. Other postponed shows include:

  • April 18: Arlington, Texas
