Anberlin has just announced plans to delay their June 26th concert until July 10th due to a few members testing positive to COVID-19. The band writes:
In an attempt to be forthright and do what we feel is wisest and most responsible, we must postpone our Blueprints livestream scheduled for this Friday, June 26th. A couple of the guys in the Anberlin camp tested positive for COVID after attending a small home gathering where all but 2 people were affected. Even though they are not currently showing symptoms, we have decided this is best for our families and friends.
We are moving the performance to Friday, July 10th to ensure the safety of everyone involved. All tickets and bundles are, of course, still honored and intact.
We love you all, so please stay safe, take your healthcare seriously, and we will see you soon!”
