Tritt bags shows requiring vax, test, mask

Monday, October 18, 2021 – Travis Tritt said today he will not perform at venues that require proof of COVID vaccination, mask mandates or testing.

As a result, the Miss. on Nov. 6, Peoria, Ill. on Nov 11 and Louisville, Ky. on Nov. 13.

In a statement released today, Tritt said, "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. Any show I have 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. 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."

"I'm sorry for any inconvenience this situation creates for anyone who had purchased tickets to these shows. We will try to reschedule unrestricted shows in these areas as soon as we can."

Shows that do not have mandates will continue as scheduled.

Tritt's response is in contrast to Jason Isbell, who has vaccinations or a negative test.

Singers like Tritt welcomed the legion of new fans and never once insisted they wear a cowboy hat - he didn't either. From a debut album in 1990 to a (chock full) greatest hits in 1995, Tritt's star shone bright. ...
CD review - The Storm In an attempt to once again crack the Top 20, which he hasn't seen since 2002, Travis Tritt is trying to reinvent himself as a soulful country singer a la Tony Joe White and T.
