FORT HOOD, TX — The grand opening for the new Fort Hood USO has been postponed.

The grand opening and concert with Grammy-award winning Ciara was scheduled for March 19.

The event has been postponed due to recent travel restrictions, USO Fort Hood posted on their Facebook.

They say the grand opening will be rescheduled for a later date this summer while the concert will be rescheduled for later in 2020.

Ciara wrote a statement to the Fort Hood community saying:

With the continued spread of the coronavirus throughout the U.S., as a pregnant woman, my doctors have advised me to limit travel and large group gatherings.

I am disappointed I won’t be able to return this month to the place where I was born, Ft. Hood Texas, and put on the amazing show we had planned however I look forward to being able to bring it to you at a later date in 2020.

I want to thank the USO and the entire community at Ft. Hood for extending your hospitality to myself and my team. I urge everyone to be diligent in taking steps to stay healthy and safe!


Details will be published in the Fort Hood Sentinel and Fort Hood Facebook Page once new dates for both events are determined.
