Evanescence and Halestorm have postponed the remainder of their co-headlining tour due to positive COVID-19 cases affecting the Evanescence touring party.

As previously reported, this past Sunday’s scheduled stop in Cincinnati was delayed after Amy Lee and company tweeted that the tour was “hit by COVID.” Originally, the show was rescheduled for December 20, but in a new statement Monday evening, Evanescence announced that it will be postponed to January 2022, along with the four final dates on the run.

“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,” Lee says. “All the bands and crew have been so diligent with every precaution to keep this from happening but this virus is a real b****!”

Lee notes that everyone is vaccinated, and that “nobody’s symptoms are severe,” adding, “[W]e are very grateful for that.”

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale previously said that everyone in her band and crew are “safe, sound and negative.”

Evanescence and Halestorm first kicked off the tour in November. The bill also included Plush and Lilith Czar on select dates.

“This tour has been an unforgettable experience that we are so proud of,” Lee says. “From the production, to our fantastic crew, to Halestorm and Lilith Czar and Plush — and most of all, to you.”

She adds, “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 that we ever imagined it could. Thank you for your understanding. We love you!”
