Multi-platinum selling and award-winning artist Travis Tritt has announced he will not perform at venues that require proof of Covid vaccination, mask mandates, or testing. As a result, four Travis Tritt concerts have been canceled.
Tritt will not turn up to perform at Muncie, Indiana, on October 23; Philadelphia, Mississippi, on November 6; Peoria, Illinois, on November 11; and Louisville, Kentucky, on November 13.
“I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated,” Tritt said in a statement.
He announced that any show he has booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately.
“Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause. I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning,” Tritt said. “This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their entire lifetimes.”
“There are plenty of promoters and venues around the country that appreciate fans and the freedom of choice in this great country, and those are the promoters and venues that I will be supporting,” he added.
Apologizing to fans for any inconvenience this situation creates for anyone who had purchased tickets to these shows, the country singer promised that he will try to reschedule unrestricted shows in these areas as soon as possible.
