String Cheese Incident Alters Tour Schedule After Positive COVID Test
Jam band String Cheese Incident has shut down the remainder of their August tour after a band member tested positive for COVID-19.
Two shows have been fully cancelled while the following six shows have been postponed to 2022 “due to the desire to keep everyone safe during this current rise in cases of COVID,” the band announced.
A show in Charlottesville scheduled for Aug. 19 will now take place April 21, while a three-night stand at Asheville’s Salvage Station has been postponed from Aug. 20–22 to April 22–24. Two concerts in Wilmington, NC set for Aug. 23–24 is moved to April 26–27.
The band has also cancelled their Aug. 26–27 performances at The Big Top in St. Louis as well as the Backwoods at Mulberry Mountain festival.
“The decision was not an easy one, but we feel it is the most responsible given our current situation. We look forward to our next chance to share a magical, musical experience with you,” SCI shared in a recently updated statement (with love and best wishes).
Ticket holders are advised to keep an eye on the band’s tour website for updates.
As of now, their next appearance will be at the Suwannee Hulaween festival in Live Oak, FL, Oct. 29–31.
