The 46-year-old further explained that he committed to complete his tour under the agreement that it would not pose any danger to the attendees.

He noted that COVID-19 protocols were and continue to be in place for all his upcoming shows to ensure no one would be vulnerable to the spread of the virus.

Buble added he and his team tried to ensure the measures were put in place for this specific concert but failed dismally for the Austin show.

In turn, it left him no other choice but to cancel, noting his conscience and his heart would not allow him to continue with the event.

The "Sway" singer canceled his upcoming concert on Monday, September 13, as he was set to play at Franklin Erwin Center as a part of his "An Evening with Michael Buble" tour.

To adhere to the COVID-19 safety precautions, Buble requires all attendees to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of the event. But this did not coincide with COVID-19 protocols set by The Franklin Erwin Center in the University of Texas.

The university's protocols are limited to social distancing and eliminating transmission to surfaces. Masks are also mandatory. Thus, in a statement addressing Buble's decision to cancel the show, officials of the university wrote:

“The University of Texas is confident in the health and safety protocols and procedures that are in place for large-scale events, we are not in a position to expand on those as Michael Buble requested.”

The institution also assured that fans who already purchased tickets for the canceled event would be refunded within the next 30 days.

Last month, Buble announced on social media that he would be following strict COVID-19 measures for all attendees of his September and October shows.

The pop star has a busy lineup throughout the fall and will be performing in more cities worldwide, including the US, UK, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico.
