Goose made the unfortunate announcement on Wednesday to postpone its Goosemas celebration to February 2022. This comes after a member of the band’s touring party tested positive for COVID-19. The concert, originally scheduled for Saturday, December 18th, 2021 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT, will now take place at the same venue on February 26th, 2022.
In a social media post, the band wrote, “We are absolutely heartbroken to relay the news that we have to reschedule this Saturday’s Goosemas show at Mohegan Sun Arena to Saturday, February 26th. Though the band and crew have been following all safety precautions, a member of our touring party tested positive for COVID-19 and we must take every precaution to put the health and safety of our fans and crew first.”
