UPDATE 12/13/2021 6:30PM: The remaining five dates in the Evanescence/Halestorm co-headlining tour have been postponed.

Evanescence shared in a statement via Facebook, “Alright guys, we’re calling it. We’re going to have to pick up these last few shows in January. We’ve done everything we could to try and make it work but with multiple positive Covid tests in our touring party it just wouldn’t be right to continue the show schedule as is. All the bands and crews have been so diligent with every precaution to keep this from happening but this virus is a real bitch! We are all vaccinated and nobody’s symptoms are severe, we are very grateful for that.”

The statement continued, “This tour has been an unforgettable experience that we are so proud of. From the production, to our fantastic crew, to Halestorm and Lilith Czar and Plush- and most of all, to you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to you incredible fans for making this dream a reality, and making it mean so much more than we ever imagined it could. We have locked in the rescheduled show dates and listed them below. We love you!”

The new show dates are as follows:

Cincinnati: 1/14
Camden: 1/16
Pittsburgh: 1/17
Worcester: 1/20
Newark: 1/21

ORIGINAL STORY
Evanescence and Halestorm were forced to postpone their show last night (December 12) in Cincinnati due to someone in the Evanescence camp testing positive for COVID-19.

In a statement shared via Twitter, the band wrote, “Our tour has been hit by COVID and we are forced to postpone our show tonight in Cincinnati. We were able to reschedule the show for Monday, Dec. 20th, so hold onto your tickets! Be on the lookout for an email with additional information. Please be safe out there! See you soon.”

The band added, “Even when you have every precaution in place, you can still get and transmit this virus. Grateful we are all vaccinated and nobody’s symptoms are severe. Please be smart and stay safe this season, get the vax, wear a mask, care for one another. We will get through this together.”

Lzzy Hale would go on to share via Instagram, “We are bummed we have to miss the show in Cincinnati tonight! We are locking down for the next two days. Fingers crossed that we can then resume this magical tour. So hang tight! For all of you who are asking: Everyone here in the Halestorm band and crew are safe and negative of Covid and we are sending our good vibes and well wishes to our dear friends in the Evanescence camp! As always thank you to all our fans for understanding.”
