Joan Jett and The Blackhearts have announced that all their shows this year after a September 28 gig in New York have been postponed due to strict safety measures in place in the wake of the COVID-19 Delta variant.
“It’s been a thrill to be back on tour recently. We all missed being on the road, playing for the fans and playing together again,” Joan Jett and the Blackhearts said in a statement announcing the postponement. “The continuing surge of COVID cases due to the Delta variant should be of concern to all of us.”
“While we are fully vaccinated, we are still being extremely cautious to protect our fans, our crew and everyone else that work so hard to put on our shows,” they added. “For that reason, we have decided the postpone the remaining performances that were planned for 2021.”
The rock band made it clear that their last date of the tour will be September 28.
“We’re disappointed to have to take this step but we feel it is necessary to protect the health of everyone,” they added.
The postponement affects seven tour dates scheduled for 2021.
