If you were planning on attending one of Jason Isbell’s upcoming concerts, ya might have to wait a little bit longer.

The man has come down with COVID-19.

He said in a thread of tweets:

“Got myself a breakthrough case of Covid- feeling fine but we’ll have to cancel the next few shows (Asheville, Louisville, Columbus, Wilkes-Barre, and Wilmington). Refunds at point of purchase but we’re working on rescheduling.

Lotta sinus drainage type stuff, scratchy in my throat and some muscle aches but no cough or breathing issues fyi. Boosted and very grateful for it.”

He’s also announced that the Asheville show will be the only one that’s canceled and will not be made up.

Isbell has been at the forefront of speaking out in favor of vaccine mandates and COVID safety precautions.

He announced last year that he would only be playing venues that require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test, and even canceled his appearance at the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Festival.

There is still no official word on when all the shows will be rescheduled.
