Oysterhead is the latest band to cancel upcoming shows as the nation attempts to contain the novel coronavirus and the disease it causes, COVID-19. The trio comprised of Les Claypool (Primus), Trey Anastasio (Phish), and Stewart Copeland (The Police) recently performed its first two shows since 2006 in Denver.
According to the announcement on the band’s Instagram, the performances scheduled to take place at Chicago, IL’s Byline Bank Aragon Ballroom (April 22nd, April 23rd), and Frost Amphitheater in Stanford, CA have been canceled outright. Tickets for those shows will be refunded automatically via point of purchase. The Oysterhead show scheduled to take place at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA is the only date that has been rescheduled. Oysterhead will now perform at the Greek Theatre on April 17th, 2021. Read the full statement from the band below:
Due to increasing public health concerns, we regret to confirm all Oysterhead April shows will not take place as planned. The Greek Theatre show is rescheduled for April 17, 2021. All tickets for the original date will be honored on the new date. The Frost Amphitheater and Byline Bank Aragon Ballroom shows are canceled, and all tickets will be refunded automatically via the point of purchase.
Oysterhead’s only other April appearance, at Atlanta’s SweetWater 420 Fest, has already been postponed along with the rest of the event. The only remaining Oysterhead dates on the 2020 schedule are the band’s appearances at Bonnaroo and The Peach Music Festival. As of now, both of those festivals are going forward as planned.
