The upcoming Zac Brown Band shows on Saturday at St Joseph’s Health Amphitheater in Syracuse, and Sunday at Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) have been cancelled. Frontman Zac Brown announced Tuesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19.
Brown said in a tweet, “I have made the difficult decision to pause Zac Brown Band’s ‘The Comeback Tour.’ Despite taking precautions, I’ve tested positive for COVID-19,” “I am deeply disappointed this has happened, as touring is our life and performing live for our fans is the best part of our job.”
“The bottom line is that I want to take every precaution to put the health and safety of our fans and crew first. We will resume the tour as soon as I have finished the CDC-mandated quarantine and it is safe for our band members and crew to do so,” Brown posted.
Four Zac Brown Band shows in total have been cancelled, including Clarkston, Michigan on September 30, Burgettstown, Pennsylvania on October 1, Syracuse on October 2 and Saratoga Springs on October 3. Refunds will be available for those canceled shows at the point of purchase.
The tour takes its name from Zac Brown Band’s upcoming album, The Comeback, slated for release on October 15, featuring the group’s current radio single, “Same Boat.”
