"When I booked my Fall tour earlier this year, before the Delta variant, the future looked bright, and most people were sure that by November 2021, COVID-19 would be in the rearview mirror. Now that we’re approaching the start of the tour, it’s clear that most places are still not safe for indoor events. Unfortunately, the standard precautions used to prevent contracting the virus, are still not enough protection given the close contact I had planned between myself and the fans. The risk of me having to cancel shows is too great, and the only thing worse, would be unknowingly infecting other people. My team and I have made the very difficult decision to postpone the tour until next Spring, when people feel more safe to attend live events, and hopefully, there’s greater immunity all around. Let’s be honest. This isn’t fun news and I hate that I have to deliver it, but in the end, it feels like the right thing to do at this time. I truly appreciate all of my loyal fans who continue to support me over the years and I can not wait to see all your beautiful faces! If you’ve already purchased tickets, hold onto them as the new dates will be announced shortly. The good news is, I’ll be adding even more cities. And on top of that, my new album NEW STAGE just dropped, so you’ll have plenty of time to memorize all of the new songs. Until then, stay safe, stay healthy, and I’ll see you in 2022!"

Since the start of his career, New York-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, artist, and actor Jesse McCartney has built a catalog of instantly recognizable anthems and captivated audiences on the road and on- screen. His first three albums—the Platinum Beautiful Soul , Right Where You Want Me , and Departure —consecutively bowed in the Top 15 of the BillboardTop 200 with the singles “Beautiful Soul” minted Gold and “Leavin’” certified Platinum. Plus, he collaborated with T-Pain on the cross-genre banger “Body Language.” Meanwhile, SPIN touted In Technicolor among its “Top 20 Pop Albums of 2014.” Along the way, he performed in arenas alongside the likes of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys in addition to packing global headline tours and hosting shows for both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
A sought-after songwriter, he notably wrote the 4x Platinum GRAMMY® Award nominated “Bleeding Love” for Leona Lewis. In 2018, the one-off single “Better With You” racked up over 30 million cumulative streams and paved the way for his fifth offering. Simultaneously, his acting credits grew to include everything from Chernobyl Diaries and Fear The Walking Dead to Alvin and the Chipmunks, and even voicing the character Roxas/Ventus in gamer favorite Kingdom Hearts.
Now, he opens up more than ever on his sixth full- length album, due out later this year. In 2020, he released “Yours”, an introspective look at the different roles he’s played throughout his life, followed by “Friends,” an homage to the people in one’s life who become chosen family. This year is shaping up to be an exciting one with his wedding on the horizon as well as the promise of his next single, “Kiss The World Goodbye” from his upcoming album, New Stage, along with a return to touring.
