Saint Asonia Announce Virtual Acoustic Performances

Saint Asonia have announced a series of virtual acoustic performances that will be livestreamed on social media accounts belonging to various radio stations. Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace) commented:

“It’s been really important to myself and the band to do everything we can to try and stay connected with fans, and with the people who play our music. We wouldn’t be where we are without the amazing love and support rock radio has shown us over the years. We ended up having this really unique opportunity to play live acoustic shows for a number of stations throughout the month of May, and we’re really excited to do it. During this strange and somewhat disappointing period in time, it’s the least we can do. We’re stoked to do a virtual tour, and play some shows for all of the people who support us. It also gives us a chance to introduce our new single ‘Blind‘ to people. It’s a song about pushing through to the end, no matter how tough it gets. It’s a strong sentiment, considering what the world is going through.”

Alter Bridge Postpone Spring Tour With Black Stone Cherry & Saint Asonia

“We hoped that it wouldn’t come to this, but as some of you have already heard unfortunately, due to recent changes around the globe created by the recent Covid-19 situation, the May headline tour of the United States with Black Stone Cherry and Saint Asonia will be postponed.

The health and safety of everyone attached to these shows (fans, artists, crew members, venue staff, etc) is our main priority. More information regarding rescheduled dates will be available in the future.

We look forward to the time when we can all come together and celebrate music as the community and family we are. Until then, Stay Home, Stay Healthy and Stay Safe…”
