Dierks Bentley has had a rough go of his Beers On Me tour. Between heavy rain, forest fires, and COVID-19, the country singer has had to cancel or postpone several concerts. And today, he announced two more cancellations.
And Bentley’s bad luck is continuing this week because COVID has been making its way through his crew. On Monday, the What Was I Thinkin’ singer told his fans that the band would need to reschedule their upcoming Maryland stop.
“We are sad to announce that we have to reschedule Thursday’s show in Columbia, Maryland,” Bentley announced on Instagram. “Even though we are a fully vaccinated tour, we had a positive test in the touring party.”
In order to keep the rest of his crew healthy, Bentley said they couldn’t head back out until Friday. But now it appears the group will have to put a couple more concerts on hold. And today, he told some East Coast ticket holders the bad news.
“Beers On Me Tour Update. Unfortunately, we have to extend out break from the rad a few more days and won’t be able to play Jones Beach (9/24) or Boston (9/25) this weekend,” he wrote. “Keeping our band, crew, and fans healthy and safe has to remain our #1 priority. Refund information below for those shows. Ya’ll stay safe, and we’ll see you in Detroit on October 7th.”
Entire Crowd Helps Dierks Bentley Sing ‘I Hold On’ At Morgan Wallen’s Flood Relief Concert
After record-breaking rains brought massive floods to Middle Tennessee on August 21st, hundreds of families were left homeless. And even worse, 20 people were killed.
During the weeks that followed the devastation, Nashville area country stars banded together to help those affected by the floods. On September 8th, Dierks Bentley joined HARDY, Cole Swindell, Lainey Wilson for Morgan Wallen’s Humphreys County flood relief concert. Together, they raised $725,000.
During the event, Dierks Bentley sang a mournful rendition of his single I Hold On. Moved by the lyrics, the entire crowd sang along. And someone caught the heartfelt moment on video. The CMA winner posted the video on Twitter and asked his followers to continue helping the victims.
