Sammy Hagar & The Circle Step-in to Headline Friday’s Albertsons Boise Open Presented by Chevron With A Special Guest Appearance By Rick Springfield After REO Speedwagon Are Forced to Cancel Performance
Today in a statement, REO Speedwagon announced the cancelation of their show this Friday night, August 20, because members of the REO touring family are still recovering from Covid-19:
Unfortunately, while we have been practicing CDC and locally recommended COVID-19 protocols on tour, members of the REO touring family tested positive for COVID-19. Fortunately, everyone was vaccinated, so only experienced mild symptoms and are recovering more and more every day. However, for the safety of our band, crew members, venue staff, our families, and our awesome fans, we will regrettably need to cancel our upcoming show in Boise, Idaho. Once everyone affected observes the recommended quarantine, tests negative, and feels up to it, we’ll be back on the road again! Stay safe & get vaccinated everyone!
Replacing REO Speedwagon on Friday night will be Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Sammy Hagar and his Supergroup The Circle featuring Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson. Grammy-winning musician Rick Springfield will also make a special appearance at the concert.
“We thank our brothers Sammy and the Circle, and Rick Springfield for having our back Friday in Boise. We will miss playing for our awesome fans, but guarantee that Sam and Rick will rock them, big time,” said REO lead singer, Kevin Cronin.
Both Thursday’s sold out Old Dominion concert and Saturday’s sold out Sammy Hagar & The Circle concert will go on as planned.
All Friday tickets are still valid, and ticketholders can still use their same tickets to attend the show on Friday night to see Sammy Hagar and Rick Springfield.
Ticket holders who no longer wish to attend on Friday can receive a refund at the event website: www.albertsonsboiseopen.com
The Albertsons Boise Open presented by Chevron will be conducted within local health and safety guidelines as well as PGA TOUR COVID-19 testing policies and strongly encourages the use of masks at the event.
