You hate to see.
Unfortunately, it looks like Chris and Morgane Stapleton won’t be making handful of his Canadian tour dates in Ontario and Quebec this weekend after a positive COVID test in the band.
The country music superstar and recent Grammy winner will be forced to reschedule the dates for a later time.
“To all of our friends in London, Ottawa, & Montreal, we are sorry to let you know that we are unable to perform this weekend due to a positive case of COVID within the band & subsequent exposures.
We want you all to know this was not a decision we made lightly & we sincerely apologize to every ticket holder.
“Stay tuned for rescheduled dates, soon to be announced. We are focused on staying safe & hope to see you all soon.
-Chris & Morgane”
The unfortunate news comes right after Chris raised over $1 million for his home state of Kentucky with his A Concert For Kentucky at the University of Kentucky’s Kroger Field in Lexington.
The sold-out show was the first concert ever held at Kroger Field, and included other performances by Willie Nelson and family, Sheryl Crow and Madeline Edwards.
The hometown Fund is an arm of Chris and Morgane’s Outlaw State of Kind charitable fund, which supports a variety of causes close to their heart in Kentucky.
Initial grants from the money raised over the weekend include $250,000 to The Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation, as well as additional pledges to the American Red Cross, UK Healthcare Kentucky Children’s Hospital, the Community Foundation of Western Kentucky’s Disaster Relief Fund, and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
They will continue to award additional grants throughout the year with the rest of the whopping $1 million raised.
Chris recently added even more dates to his already extensive All American Road Show tour
