Gwen Stefani Fans Devastated after Houston Rodeo Performance Is Canceled Due to Coronavirus Fears

Gwen Stefani felt horrible about not being able to perform at an upcoming show in Texas. Her fans, however, were simply torn apart by the news. 

Gwen Stefani, 50, is among several artists who will no longer be performing at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo event in the coming days. The show was canceled on Wednesday

In their announcement, Houston Rodeo said that the  Houston Health Department and the City of Houston ordered them to close their grounds. Stefani's fans were heartbroken.

Stefani disappointed in cancelation

"So sad I won't be able to see you guys at @RodeaHouston but understand safety is most important," the "Hollaback Girl" singer wrote on Twitter soon after the official announcement came out. 

Fans were quick to react to the news, which comes just under a month after Stefani released a clip talking about how excited she was to perform at the event on Tuesday, March 17. 

Fans planned way in advance to go

One fan revealed that she traveled all the way from Ecuador to see Stefani perform. She invited the singer to return the favor and perhaps visit Ecuador one day. 

Almost all of Stefani's fans were understanding of the need to put safety first — both hers and everyone else's — amid the coronavirus outbreak. They were still upset, though. 

Other celebs were also saddened

Someone else asked for a reschedule in the city. Unfortunately, Houston Rodeo seems to be focusing on giving refunds rather than preparing new dates for the show. 

The event was supposed to run until March 22. Other artists scheduled to perform included Lizzo and Kane Brown, who both took to Twitter as well to express their disappointment. 

Shelton surprises his fans

Some fans were lucky enough to see Stefani perform last Saturday. During boyfriend Blake Shelton's tour stop in Los Angeles, Stefani joined him for the pair's duet, "Nobody But You."

After they finished, Shelton showered his sweetheart with kisses before letting her walk off stage. Later on, Stefani shared heartwarming photos of her and her boys at the show.

Stefani's son turns six

The "What you Waiting For?" singer took a selfie shot with Shelton and her two sons, Zuma, 11, and Kingston, 13. Stefani's youngest son, Apollo, six, didn't join in on a fun night. 

Stefani celebrated Apollo's birthday last month with a cute photo of her and the young boy.  He sat on Shelton, who was holding onto an oreo cookie designed cake with Happy Birthday written in colorful icing on the front.
