Rick Springfield cancels Dominican Republic performance amid travel safety concerns

Rick Springfield is canceling a scheduled performance in the Dominican Republic over safety concerns after several U.S. tourists have died and developed serious illnesses while vacationing. 

Springfield, 69, has announced he’ll be pulling out of a fan getaway event titled “Rick Springfield & Friends” scheduled for Nov. 7-11 in Punta Cana in “an abundance of caution and for the peace of mind” of everyone involved.

“While this decision has not been easy, the safety and well-being of our amazing fans, band and crew will always be the most important consideration in any situation,” he wrote in a post Monday on the official Rick Springfield website. “Sending our love and best wishes to all of our friends in the Dominican Republic.”
