These hard times will try any Matchbox Twenty fan, especially with news that the band is putting its upcoming tour on hold.

The band's Sept. 27 concert at Mechanics Bank Arena has been postponed, along with other dates for the tour, which was set to start July 17.

With 50 shows planned running through Sept. 28, this was the first tour for Matchbox Twenty since 2017. 

No word yet on rescheduled dates for Bakersfield or other tour stops.

Ticket holders are encouraged to hold onto their tickets, which will be honored at the rescheduled date.
