Renowned musician Beverly Glenn-Copeland has made the difficult decision to postpone his highly-anticipated October tour across North America, citing the concerning surge in Covid-19 cases. In a heartfelt message to his fans, Glenn-Copeland explained that his decision is rooted in his immunocompromised status and his octogenarian age, which have prompted medical advice for elevated safety measures.
Initially, when he announced the tour in July, just before the release of his latest album, “The Ones Ahead,” Glenn-Copeland had planned to ensure the safety of attendees by requiring them to wear masks during his shows. However, the rapidly changing circumstances have necessitated a more comprehensive approach.
The affected tour dates were as follows:
- October 15: Toronto, Ontario – Eastminster United Church
- October 18: Montreal, Quebec – Le National
- October 21: North Adams, MA – Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art
- October 23: Queens, NY – Knockdown Center
- October 25: Philadelphia, PA – First Unitarian Church Sanctuary
In a sincere and empathetic message, Glenn-Copeland conveyed his regret to all ticket holders, expressing his sadness at being unable to bring his live performance to fruition at this time. He acknowledged the immense effort put in by himself, his team, and the musicians involved in preparing for the tour, underscoring that the decision to postpone was not taken lightly.
However, Glenn-Copeland firmly asserted that health must take precedence, especially given his immunocompromised condition and his age. With a note of optimism and a promise to return, he concluded his message, leaving his fans with a heartfelt “I will see you soon ❤️.”
For those who had purchased tickets, refunds will be available at the point of purchase, ensuring that fans are not left disappointed.
In these challenging times, Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s decision to prioritize safety serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of health and well-being, even in the face of eagerly anticipated events.
