The String Cheese Incident canceled this weekend’s concerts after a member of the band tested positive for COVID-19. Shows planned for Friday and Saturday at Louisville’s Iroquois Amphitheater and Sunday at Columbus’ Express Live! have been scrapped.

SCI’s announcement mentions all of the band, including the undisclosed member who tested positive for COVID-19, have been vaccinated. Refunds will be processed automatically through the point of purchase.

Read a full statement from The String Cheese Incident below:

Hi Friends and Family,

It has been a blast getting back on stage, sharing vibes, and reconnecting with y’all since music has restarted. Alas, we, like many of you have had our own share of COVID related concerns that we have done our best to manage. Unfortunately, despite all being vaccinated, one of the band members has tested positive for COVID. Thus, we are in the unfortunate position to have to cancel the first few shows of the tour while he recovers to full health. Tickets for Louisville & Columbus will automatically be refunded via point of purchase.

We are super bummed we can’t play music for y’all, but this is how the world seems to run these days. Stay tuned to our social media channels, or check our website for further updates on next week’s shows: Thanks for the continued support, and we look forward to crossing paths soon.

The next stop on the tour following the canceled dates is a two-night stand at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater in Wilmington, North Carolina August 17 – 18. As noted in the statement, The String Cheese Incident will provide further updates on the status of next week’s concerts via the band’s website and social feeds.
