REO Speedwagon Withdraw From Sturgis Due to Positive COVID Test in Their Camp
REO Speedwagon is the latest band that has been affected by a positive COVID-19 case within their camp.
The band released the following statement via their Facebook page: “Attention Sturgis, SD fans! Unfortunately, while we have been practicing CDC and locally recommended COVID-19 protocols on tour, members of the REO touring family still tested positive recently. Fortunately, everyone was vaccinated, and all are feeling fine despite the positive tests. However, for the safety of our band, crew members, venue staff, our families, and our awesome fans, we will regrettably be canceling our upcoming show in Sturgis, SD.”
The band concluded, “Once everyone affected observes the recommended quarantine and tests negative, we’ll be back on the road again! Stay safe & get vaccinated everyone!”
The next tour date on REO Speedwagon’s itinerary is on August 20 in Boise, Idaho. So far, that gig is expected to go on as scheduled.
