The ‘Trinity of Terror’ will temporarily only be a ‘Duo of Terror’ as Black Veil Brides pulled out of touring after vocalist Andy Biersack and ‘several other members’ of the band’s touring crew tested positive for COVID.
Biersack posted a message to the band’s social media over the weekend, initially revealing the news to the band’s fans during their April 3 date in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. But as the post reveals, it looks like the group will be out of action for at least several shutdowns.
“Oshkosh, 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 feeling a sudden terrible illness and developed a high fever and chills. Unfortunately after several tests, it is clear that I and several other members of the BVB tour team have currently tested positive for Covid,” the singer said.
He added: “For obvious reasons and out of an abundance of caution, we will be taking time off the tour until we are cleared to play again. MIW, INK and Lilith Czar will still be performing each night, but if you want a refund for your ticket, they will be available at your point of purchase. We are very sorry for this terrible situation and promise to catch up as soon as possible on the TOT tour. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to getting back on stage for sing with you soon.”
While it’s unclear how long the band will be away from the tour, dates this week include stops in Fargo, North Dakota, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Indianapolis, Indiana and Pikeville, Kentucky. . To see all the dates for the tour of the “Trinity Tower” race, click here.
We send our best wishes to Andy Biersack and the BVB team members for a speedy recovery and a return to touring soon.
