Andy Biersack Diagnosed With COVID, Black Veil Brides to Miss Multiple Shows on Current Tour
Glam-leaning metalcore act Black Veil Brides (I don’t know how else to describe them) are currently out on tour with Ice Nine Kills and Motionless In White. However, it now appears that the band will miss several dates on this trek, as frontman Andy Biersack has come down with a case of the ‘rona.
Biersack released the following statement yesterday, saying that he and multiple members of their touring party have COVID:
“Oshkosh [Wisconsin], it is with great sadness that I share that BVB will not be able to perform tonight. Last night after the show in Chicago I started to feel an awful sickness come on out of the blue and developed a high fever and chills. Unfortunately after multiple tests it is clear that both me and several other members of the BVB touring crew currently have tested positive for Covid.
“For obvious reasons and out of an abundance of caution we will be taking time away from the tour until we cleared to play again. MIW, INK and Lilith Czar will still be performing each night but should you want a refund for your ticket they will be available at your point of purchase.
“We are truly sorry for this awful situation and promise to make it up to any of you looking forward to seeing us as part of the TOT tour as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and we can’t wait to get back out onstage to sing with you all soon”.
The exact number of dates that Black Veil Brides will be taking off of the tour is unclear. In the meantime, we wish Biersack and the band’s crew a speedy recovery.
