Coldplay Cancels Two Shows After Crew Members Tested Positive For COVID-19
According to the announcement made from Coldplay’s official Twitter account, they had to cancel two shows in London and Germany after a number of crew members’ positive COVID results.
With the emergence of the pandemic, we are all accustomed to hearing cancel or postponement announcements from musicians and bands. The music industry is surely one of the most affected fields by the pandemic. The concerts are being announced after a long break, but the strict measures are still with us. It seems like the positive cases will continue to influence the schedules.
Coldplay had been announced to perform in the Jingle Bell Ball 2021, which is a concert held by the radio station Capital FM every year in December. The fans in London were excitedly waiting for the big show, but Coldplay, and also Lil Nas X who would also be performing at the concert, had to cancel their shows due to the positive COVID cases. They were replaced by Arrdee and Tom Grennan.
Unfortunately, Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball was not the only show Coldplay had to cancel. In their Twitter post, they stated that they will also not be performing on The Voice of Germany. Coldplay members expressed their sadness over the bad news and wished the crew members a quick recovery. They had to cancel the shows at the last minute, but their fans still showed their support and told them that their health is all that matters.
Here is how Coldplay announced the canceled shows:
We regret to say that, due to positive COVID-19 cases in the band’s touring party, we’re no longer able to perform at Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball tonight in London or on The Voice of Germany on Sunday. We send our love to the individuals affected and wish them a swift recovery.
We’re sorry to cancel at the last minute and apologize to everyone concerned.
Thank you, as always, for your support.”
