December 17th in Worcester has already been rescheduled for March 4, 2022. All tickets originally purchased for Dec 17, 2021 will now be valid for March 4, 2022. We are working on a rescheduled date in Albany now as well. Please allow us a few days to get that worked out, and we will provide more details as soon as possible.
