Stars On Ice tour cancelled for the first time in 34 years due to pandemic

The show was supposed to hit the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre on May 12

Adding to the list of cancelled events, the 2020 Stars on Ice Tour — which was supposed to be coming to Victoria in May — has been scrapped due to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

“This is the first time in our 34-year history that we have cancelled a single performance, much less an entire tour,” said Byron Allen, producer of the show, in a statement.
