80's rockers Winger cancelled last night's show (Sept. 5) in Sauk Rapids, MN due to several cases of Covid-19 cases within their own camp.
The band released the following statement regarding the matter: "Unfortunately, while we have been practicing CDC and locally recommended COVID-19 protocols on tour, members of our touring party tested positive for COVID-19. Thankfully, everyone was vaccinated, so only experienced mild symptoms. However, for the safety of our band, crew members, venue staff and fans, we need to cancel our show in Sauk Rapids, MN tonight. FIREHOUSE will be playing instead and we wish everyone a great show! Thanks to all for your support and we apologize to those fans we won't be seeing. Can't wait to be back when it is 100% safe for everyone to do so. Stay safe!"
WINGER recently spent time recording its seventh studio album. The disc, which is tentatively due next year, will be the follow-up to 2014's "Better Days Comin'".
