Baroness commented:

“With the current surge in Omicron cases, we will be postponing Leg 2 of the ‘Your Baroness Tour‘ until March and April. With the intimate, ‘in your face’ nature of these shows we want to make sure that we’re doing everything we can to ensure a safe, healthy night for everyone in the room. We don’t want anyone coming to see us to feel like they are at risk, and we also don’t want to get back out there and end up having to cancel (more) shows because someone in the touring party is ill.

These shows have been some of the most thrilling and rewarding we’ve ever done, and we absolutely cannot wait to get back to it. Luckily, we’ll only have to (impatiently) wait a few extra weeks to do it!

The new ‘Your Baroness‘ dates are below. All original tickets will be valid on the rescheduled date, and setlist voting will be extended until 8 days before the rescheduled date for anyone who has not yet cast their ballot. If you cannot make the rescheduled show, please contact your original point of purchase for a refund.

To our friends in Nashville and Tucson: unfortunately the venues were not available to reschedule your shows and we were not able to find any alternative rooms that were open, so we will be forced to cancel those shows. Refunds will be issued by your original point of purchase. We will be back as soon as we possibly can!

To our friends in Houston: please note that the venue for your rescheduled date has changed and will move from Secret Group to Satellite Houston. All tickets previously purchased for this show will be honored at the new venue.

Thank you for understanding and we will see you SOON.”

Baroness Cancel Three Shows After Members Of Their Touring Party Test Positive For COVID-19

Members of Baroness’ touring party have tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the band have been forced to cancel their shows in Boise, ID, Salt Lake City, UT, and Denver, CO.

John Baizley commented:

“Let me start by saying that the shows on the Your Baroness tour have been truly incredible so far, some of the best we’ve ever played and that is in no small part thanks to all of the fans who have come out after such a long period apart.

We’ve been taking every precaution to make sure this tour is done safely and responsibly with a fully vaccinated and consistently masked band and crew and keeping a very close circle, but as we’ve seen throughout the pandemic there is no such thing as a 100% guarantee and I’m deeply saddened to report that members of our touring party tested positive for COVID this morning.

The folks who have tested positive are all asymptomatic and feeling great; but for the safety of the band, the crew and the fans we will unfortunately have to cancel tonight’s show in Boise, Wednesday’s show in Salt Lake City and Friday’s show in Denver.

We are extremely disappointed that we won’t be able to play these shows as scheduled; but we are going to take the necessary steps to see a speedy return to the stage for the remainder of this tour.

This pandemic is something you truly CANNOT fuck around with, no matter how safe you think you are. In order to tour safely we all have to stay vigilant and work together as a music community to help each other out and keep each other safe.

We appreciate how much we have asked of our fans, let’s try to continue to do everything we can, together, to keep these venues safe havens for bands, audiences, touring crew and venue staff alike.

Cheers to everyone so far for your responsibility and support, and for bringing us out to your cities… we will see the rest of you shortly!

To Boise, SLC and Denver: we will be saving Your setlists for when we can get back to your town!

John Baizley commented:

“I cannot remember any moment in the history of this band where we’ve been more excited to tour than we are today. In many ways, this upcoming tour feels similar the very first Baroness tour in 2003: we don’t know what to expect, we’re through sitting on the sidelines, and we can’t wait to climb onstage.

During the past two years we’ve tried to keep ourselves as busy as possible: writing, recording and rehearsing insofar as the pandemic would allow. Throughout that time, one fact has become increasingly clear… we are built as a live/touring band. The most powerful and important aspects of music reveal themselves only through shared experience. Baroness’ music is designed to be shared; our audience has always been the final and most important member of the band. Quite simply, it doesn’t feel right without YOU!

We’ve started counting down the hours in anticipation of that first blissful moment when the lights dim and the room falls silent, when we can once again commune with our audience. We’ve missed you all dearly and we’re really excited to see the setlists you all design for us. There’s never been a better time to put the trust and control of our music in your capable hands. Electric or acoustic, sung or screamed, from the EPs to the LPs: we’re busy preparing for everything from those 6 or 7 hours of recorded music.

Furthermore, we thought the pandemic had stolen from us the opportunity to play Gold & Grey in front of American audiences and we look forward to playing those songs for you as well. Finally, we’re really thrilled to have the opportunity to play up close and personal in some venues we haven’t typically played in recent years. It feels so good to share all of this news with you, we’ve missed this more than we can possibly explain. We hope to see you all soon!”
