BEVERLY GLENN-COPELAND TOUR CANCELED
Beverly Glenn-Copeland has canceled his upcoming tour dates which included a NYC show at Knockdown Center on October 23. He writes:
Unfortunately, due to the alarming rise in Covid numbers, I have no choice but to announce the cancellation of my upcoming North American Tour dates.
Due to being immunocompromised and in my 80th year, doctors have advised that standard masking at shows would no longer be sufficient protection. In addition, the requirement to mask would now also extend to me as I perform!
To all of you who have bought tickets, I’m sorry I won’t be able to bring this show to life right now. Myself, Elizabeth and all the musicians involved have been working tirelessly in preparation for this tour and it is not a decision we’ve taken lightly, however health has to come first.
