Circle Jerks Postpone Immediate Live Shows After Singer Keith Morris Tests Positive For COVID-19

Circle Jerks have postponed their immediate live shows due to singer Keith Morris testing positive for COVID-19. The band will return to the stage on April 26 in Austin, TX.

The band issued the following statement:

“💔 We had hoped it wouldn’t come to this, but our fearless singer, our dude, Keith Morris, is headed home to rest for 10 days as he recovers from COVID-19. This will not stop Keith! You have no idea how ecstatic we are to be on tour for the first time in 15 years. Seeing your excitement every night has made it all worth it. Thank you! We plan to announce all rescheduled shows in the next week or two. And we will start the tour again on Tuesday, April 26th in Austin for two nights at the Mohawk. Get ready, Texas!

This postponement is the reality of touring in 2022, but it does not take away how financially crippling it is for everyone involved – especially our good friends and supporting bands, @official7seconds & Negative Approach (@realjohnbrannon). We are selling silk screened posters signed by Keith Morris, John Brannon, & Kevin Seconds in our online shop. All profits from this and the North American Flyer T-Shirt will be split equally between the three bands. If you want to support this tour, this is the best way to do it. Link in bio.

We will continue to provide updates on Keith and all things Circle Jerks on our socials. We wish Keith a speedy recovery and cannot wait to see you all soon ❤️”
