City and Colour's Dallas Green postpones tour dates after contracting COVID-19

·1 min read

TORONTO — City and Colour's Dallas Green says he's been forced to cancel shows in several Canadian cities after testing positive for COVID-19.

Green says in an Instagram post that he and crew members on his concert tour contracted the virus despite being fully vaccinated and taking precautions to be "as safe as we could."

The St. Catharines, Ont., native says those affected are "doing OK" while they rest and isolate.

He says scheduled performances in Toronto and Montreal this month have been postponed until February.

Green, who rose to prominence as part of the post-hardcore outfit Alexisonfire, apologized to fans in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Milwaukee and Saint Paul, Minn., for cancelling shows earlier this week.

He says he'll try to make it up to them "one day down the road."

"Being back out on the road singing for all of you has been so beautiful and rewarding," Green wrote on Thursday. "I hope everyone understands and we'll see you in the new year."
