Counting Crows brutally postpones Boston COVID gig – NBC Boston


A positive COVID test prompted rock band Counting Crows to withdraw from their Boston gig on Sunday hours before they were supposed to take the stage.

The group broke the news at around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, citing someone on the tour who tested positive for COVID-19, despite the group and their crew being fully vaccinated.

The concert, which is part of the group’s “Butter Miracle Tour”, was scheduled to take place Sunday night at the Leader Bank Pavilion in Boston Harbor in Boston. The group also pulled out of its Youngstown, Ohio show scheduled for Tuesday.

The Leader Bank pavilion also announced the news on Sunday, writing: “Hold on to your tickets as they will be honored for the new date once announced. The entire group and team have been vaccinated and taken great precautions to be as safe as possible. “

The Counting Crows shows in Boston and Youngstown were postponed and the group said they were “working quickly” to find new dates at both locations. The next show of the tour is scheduled for Thursday in Franklin, Tennessee.

Live music is back at Fenway Park after concerts were postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but with cases on the rise again, many fans are taking precautions.

This isn’t the first Boston gig to be affected by the Delta variant that’s currently sweeping the United States. Rock band Fall Out Boy pulled out of their Boston gig on Wednesday after a member of the band’s team tested positive for coronavirus, though the show continued with other heads of poster, Green Day and Weezer.
