Circle Jerks were forced to postpone a few shows last week, in Burlington, Boston, Asbury Park, and Philadelphia, after Keith Morris tested positive for Covid. Monday night's (4/11) show in Stroudsburg, PA was to be their first show back, but they've now had to postpone two more dates, Monday in Stroudsburg and Tuesday (4/12) in Boston. Their NYC shows, scheduled for Thursday (4/14) and Friday (4/15) at Irving Plaza, are now set to be their return to the stage.
"We have made the very difficult decision to postpone our next two shows: Stroudsburg (4/11) and Boston (4/12)," the band write on Instagram. "The good news is that Keith is getting better by the day. We will resume the tour on Thursday, April 14th at Irving Plaza in New York City. All postponed shows will be rescheduled for July and announced in just over a week."
7Seconds and Negative Approach, who are on tour with Circle Jerks, have been playing last minute, intimate shows while the Circle Jerks dates are on hold, and they have a couple more coming up: at Boston's Sonia on Tuesday (4/12) (with Death Before Dishonor and Sick Minds), and at Providence's Alchemy on Wednesday (4/13) with Catalyst and Bullet Proof Backpack.
