London-area Chris Stapleton fans will have to wait a bit longer to see the country music star perform in the Forest City as part of his All-American Road Show tour.

In a social media post Thursday, Stapleton announced that the show, scheduled for Thursday night at Budweiser Gardens, would be postponed as a result of a positive COVID-19 case within the band, in addition to subsequent exposures.

“Stay tuned for rescheduled dates, soon to be announced. We are focused on staying safe and hope to see you all soon.”
