“Due to unfortunate and unavoidable COVID-related circumstances, we will be unable to move forward with our planned fall tour dates — including our festival appearances and our tour with Stone Temple Pilots,” Bush, whose tour was scheduled to begin later this month, posted Friday night (Sept. 10).
“We cannot stress enough how heart-breaking it is to not be able to go out and play after all of this time, and after all of our attempted starts and ensuing stops over the past year and a half. We wish to extend our deepest apologies as this is the last thing we would want for all our great fans as well as our good friends in Stone Temple Pilots,” their message read.
On Stone Temple Pilots’ Twitter account, the band shared the same update and said: “We are of course saddened by this news, but it’s a sign of the times right now.”
Meanwhile, STP’s own headlining tour dates, which kick off on Oct. 17, “are still on,” they confirmed in their message.
The COVID-19 pandemic has been the reason behind countless canceled or rescheduled concerts; see an updated list of 2021’s cancelations here.
