The fallout continues in the concert industry. Thursday’s report on cancellations and postponements around the Twin Cities included information on these shows: Kenny Chesney, Lumineers, Jason Aldean, Dan + Shay, the Drive-by Truckers, Lanco, Cloud Cult, plus numerous club gigs. Here are more updates:
Rage Against the Machine: The entire first leg of the reunited rap-rockers’ first tour in over a decade has been delayed, including the quickly sold-out May 11-12 two-night stand at Target Center in Minneapolis. “We will be in touch soon about rescheduled dates,” the band said in a tweet. Fans should hang onto their hard-to-come-by tickets in the meantime.
Thom Yorke: The Radiohead frontman's North American tour was supposed to kick off March 28 and land at Xcel Enerty Center on April 5, but he's now postponing the whole trek. "Ticket holders, please stand by for information on a new routing for later this year," he wrote on Twitter. "Apologies for the inconvenience."
Sturgill Simpson: The Kentucky twang-rocker scratched a handful of the first dates on his upcoming tour with pal Tyler Childers, including their two-night stand April 4-5 at the Armory in Minneapolis. One makeup date for those shows has already been set: May 13. The second show, however, has been scratched altogether, which also happened with the two-night stand in Chicago. "Ticketholders for the canceled shows will be contacted directly in the next few days," Simpson's team said in the announcement.
Reba McEntire: She’s also postponing a long stretch of dates. Her May 7 show at Xcel Energy Center has already been rescheduled for July 23. Tickets for the original date will be honored that night, or refunds can be sought.
Steve Aoki: The Armory held out on this one but finally pulled the plug on the EDM guru's Saturday set, citing Gov. Tim Walz's declaration of a peacetime state of emergency. "We are exploring options to reschedule, and hope to have a new date in the coming weeks," the venue said in its statement.
Joe Bonamassa: The governor's declaration, which limits crowd sizes to 250 people, also unplugged the blues slinger's pair of Orpheum Theatre shows Friday and Saturday. They were firmly canceled, with no makeup plans, so refunds will be given.
The Revivalists: The New Orleans hippie-rockers’ gig Friday night at the Fillmore has been rebooked for Oct. 23.
Thundercat: Saturday's Fillmore gig by the bass-wielding funk n' soul maestro will be rescheduled at at a date to be determined.
ZZ Ward: Her Friday night gig at First Avenue will also be rescheduled, but a date has not been set yet.
Solid Gold: The local synth-rockers' overdue return to the stage Friday at the Turf Club will be even longer in the making. Makeup date TBA.
Silversun Pickups: The "Lazy Eye" hitmakers return to First Ave on March 23 has also been bumped to a later date to be determined, as has their "Microshow" with 89.3 the Current scheduled for the Entry that afternoon.
Other shows this weekend: For now, it looks like concerts by Joe Bonamassa and Shellac are still a go. First Avenue posted a lengthy statement addressing concerns at its various venues that read, “As we continue to monitor the outbreak, we will continue to communicate via email, our website, and social media.”
Still no word: The upcoming Eagles and Rolling Stones dates in the Twin Cities are still scheduled for now. The Eagles did postpone their shows this weekend in Dallas but did not yet address other cities.
