WWE has rescheduled its shows in New York City and South Africa

WWE was originally scheduled for a house show tour of South Africa from April 29 through May 2, 2020. Now with the coronavirus pandemic changing the lives of everyone around the globe, that tour has been rescheduled for September.

WWE’s official statement on the scheduling change reads as follows:

The safety of the WWE Universe is always our top priority. The South African government has now declared a national state of disaster, and banned travelers from high risk countries from entering our country as well as public gatherings of more than 100 people for the foreseeable future.

Under the circumstances the WWE LIVE South Africa events originally scheduled for May have now been postponed until September.

The new dates are:

Cape Town: Thursday, Sept. 10, 2020 at the Grand Arena, GrandWest

Durban: Friday, Sept. 11, 2020 at Moses Mabhida Stadium

Johannesburg: Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020 at the Ticketpro Dome (matinee show)

WWE also had a house show scheduled at Madison Square Garden in New York City this weekend on Mar. 22. MSG’s web site now says the show has been postponed and rescheduled for June 27.
