You’re used to this by now, but here’s another Tampa Bay concert postponement. On Thursday afternoon, Christian rapper and songwriter NF postponed his May 1 concert at Tampa’s Yuengling Center.

The postponement comes after the 28-year-old pulled the plug on European dates in the wake of the global coronavirus pandemic that’s redefined the meaning of a “normal day” in Tampa Bay.

In a Twitter post from the venue, NF said he’s pushing the dates back “to later this summer for everyone’s well-being.”

He asked fans to hold on to their tickets if that can.

“They will be honored for all the rescheduled dates,” NF wrote.
