Thursday Postpone Immediate Live Shows Due To Positive COVID-19 Test

Thursday have postponed their upcoming shows in Reading, PA, Washington, DC, and Sayreville, NJ. The concerts were scrapped after at least one member of the band tested positive for COVID-19.

The group initially issued the following statement:

“One of the band has tested positive for covid this morning. The shows this week in DC at @930club and Sayreville @starlandnj are NOT happening. Rescheduled dates will be announced imminently.”

They later added:

“As you might know, a few of us have been stuck in quarantine and / or sick, so are not able to play shows and hang out with everyone. We’re heartbroken and full of worry about the big UHAUL truck full of tour merch; paying back flights and hotels as well as other terrifying bills intertwined with the insane cost of rapid PCR tests, never mind looking after our crew who depend on any work they can get (just like us) these days. Not only are we full of stress, we are full of mashed potatoes. So full. With these problems in mind, we thought that we would stream a ‘pop up’ encore performance of our 2020 holiday extravaganza Signals V2 on Thursday night to try and pay some bills, have us all be together (at least virtually) and give us all something good to watch (sorry to Keanu, that new Matrix was way too meta, even for us). Some of the new tour merch is for sale also. Normally we have a merch company send it out but on this occasion it will be posted by the band. Maybe we should start an Only Fans to watch the remaining healthy Thursday members packing envelopes in the back of a truck(that’s gotta be someone’s kink, right?) Steve has a very fancy dove shaped embosser, so if you get one on the back of your envelope, you know it was him. Geoff will also be live on air before the show and at points during – band members will be in the chat room during also. Whilst this isn’t exactly George Michael and Bono at Live Aid (it’s much better) we do have to say that when we asked our friends @normanbrannon , @jimmyjamesb , @frankieromustdie , @walterschreifels and @travstever if we could re-broadcast the show, they all got back instantly with a resounding YES and what could they do to help us? Our tour mates next month – @cursivetheband allowed us to use their epic set from Signals V1 and we have been absolutely overwhelmed by the messages of support we have gotten from all of YOU. We are truly part of a great scene here. V2 saved the holidays for us and our families last year and it is unfathomable to us that it could potentially save the holidays again this year. We could not love you any more. All love and well being to our friend @laurajanegrace Ticket Link in bio.”
