Jerry Cantrell cancels Florida shows due to touring party Covid

Jerry Cantrell has cancelled a pair of shows in Florida this week after some members of his touring party tested positive for Covid-19.

“Unfortunately, we have just learned of some positive COVID-19 cases in our touring party,” shared Cantrell on social media on April 11. “As a result, we are cancelling our upcoming Florida shows in Orlando [April 12] and St. Petersburg [April 13]. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to return to these cities as soon as possible. Refunds will be available at point of purchase. VIP holders will be notified directly with refund directions."

The Alice In Chains rocker has been on the road in support of his latest solo album, “Brighten”, since the series opened in Minneapolis, MN on March 24.

“Brighten” sees Cantrell joined a by an extensive cast of rockers, including drummers Gil Sharone and Abe Laboriel, Jr. (Paul McCartney), pedal steel master Michael Rozon, Vincent Jones on piano, Wurlitzer, and organ, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Loaded) on select bass tracks, Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan) handling all of the background vocals and Joe Barresi (Tool, Queens of the Stone Age) overseeing the mixing of the record.

The project delivers eight new Cantrell originals and a cover of Elton John’s 1971 “Madman Across The Water” track, “Goodbye.”

Cantrell will regroup with Alice In Chains this summer for a co-headlining US tour with Breaking Benjamin – and guests Bush – with dates starting in August.
