Quad Cities Concert Postponed Due To Coronavirus.
With Coronavirus fears on the rise, things are going to understandably keep getting canceled. The first Quad Cities event is seeing that now. In a release The Adler Theater announced that Scott Bradlee would be postponing the Postmodern Jukebox show.
The Adler theater went on to state:
"We regret to announce that the upcoming Postmodern Jukebox performance scheduled for Tuesday, March 31 at the Adler Theatre has been postponed. Please look for an announcement soon regarding a rescheduled date.
The following is an update from Postmodern Jukebox creator, Scott Bradlee:"
“I’ve been watching the novel coronavirus situation very closely ever since our US tour shipped off in late February. Since then, I’ve done my best to get a clear picture of what exactly this thing is and how substantial a threat it poses to us as new information begins to come to light almost hourly.
Those studying the disease and its spread unanimously agree that mass gatherings of over 1000 people have the potential to significant accelerate the spread of the virus. In light of that, I’m pulling our cast off the road, and with the help of the venues we will be postponing the remaining dates of our US Spring tour to this fall. All previous tickets will be honored at the new dates, and in the event the new dates don’t work out, refunds will be available.
We don’t take this decision lightly. We put a lot of work into creating this show, and we were about to hit a stretch of sold out dates. Our motto in entertainment is and will always be, “the show must go on,” but the well-being of our audience members and their respective communities should always take precedent over any desire to entertain.
All of us at Postmodern Jukebox are heartbroken by this turn of events, but we know this is just a bump in the road in our mission to bring great music and great talent around the world, as it has been for the past seven years. We can’t wait to see you again soon.”
Please hold on to your tickets purchased for the Tuesday, March 31 performance, as they will be honored for the new date. Refunds will be available at the original point of purchase. For questions concerning tickets, please contact the Adler Theatre Box Office at 563-326-8522. The box office (136 E. 3rd St.) is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m."
No other events have been canceled in the Quad Cities, at the time of writing this. This was a decision made by the artist not the venue. It's sad to see, but also understandable. Many of us would rather be safe than sorry.
