Phoebe Bridgers moves shows outdoors as COVID-19 cases rise in US

Phoebe Bridgers has moved her US shows to outdoor venues “in the interest of safety”.

The 27-year-old folk-rock star has been forced to postpone some of the dates on her ‘Reunion Tour’ after she moved them from indoors out of an abundance of care for gig-goers and her crew amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those attending will also have to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test result, while Phoebe has asked that her fans wear masks to the gigs.

In a statement posted to her Twitter page, the ‘Kyoto’ singer said: “Let’s try this again…

In the interest of safety, I’ve decided to only play outdoors for the upcoming tour. We are moving all previously scheduled indoor shows to outdoor venues and we’ve needed to postpone shows in a couple cities so please check the updated schedule.

“At my request, there are updated health and safety requirements. Entry will require proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

“Where that’s not permissible by law, we’ll agree to proof of vaccination OR proof of negative test result (PCR preferred/Antigen accepted) within 48 hours prior to entering those venues.

“And please wear a mask. I love you. See you soon. (sic)”

The move to outdoor venues comes as the US had a 7-day-average of 149,675 new cases up to August 22.
