LESS THAN JAKE REPLACE A SIMPLE PLAN ON NEW FOUND GLORY TOUR

SLOAN / HEADSTONES / MOIST / THE TEA PARTY
Sloan were set to be part of an all-Canadian alt-rock tour called "Saints + Sinners" that also featured Headstones, Moist and The Tea Party. Alas, the tour has been canceled due to COVID concerns. The official statement via Sloan's Instagram, below:
Spoon played their first show since the pandemic in July, and they have a North American tour lined up and set to begin in September. They've announced a change to that tour, cancelling the September 9 show at Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines, Iowa, because of the state's ban on "vaccine passports," which bars businesses and government entities from requiring customers prove they've been vaccinated to enter. Instead, Spoon have announced a show at the Slowdown in Omaha, NE on the same night, September 9.
BUKU PROJECT PLANET B CANCELED
After being forced to cancel their 2020 edition due to COVID, New Orleans' BUKU Music + Arts Project are planning a full return in March of 2022. In the mean time, they announced BUKU Project Planet B in June, set for October. It was planned as a single-edition, lower capacity event to bridge the gap until 2022, but it's now been cancelled due to surging COVID cases in Louisiana.
