Circle Jerks Reschedule North American Tour After Keith Morris Contracts COVID-19
Most Canadian dates already happened, but a new Vancouver date has been booked
Published May 11, 2022Legendary punk troupe Circle Jerks have had to postpone several upcoming 40th anniversary tour dates due to frontman Keith Morris contracting COVID-19. As a result, the trek with Adolescents, Negative Approach, 7seconds and Bouncing Souls has been bumped to an undisclosed set of later dates.
As most Canadian dates on the trek have already happened, most of the country remains unaffected by the postponement. However, a new date for the band's Vancouver show has emerged, surfacing on July 3 at the Commodore Ballroom (with support from 7seconds and "special guests").
UPDATE (5/11, 12:23 p.m. ET): Circle Jerks have announced their rescheduled US tour dates. Scroll down for the updated itinerary with new dates in bold.
The band's statement on Morris's condition, as well as their tour schedule, can be found below, while further information regarding ticketing can be found here.
We had hoped it wouldn't come to this, but our fearless singer, our dude, Keith Morris, is headed home to rest for 10 days as he recovers from COVID-19. This will not stop Keith! You have no idea how ecstatic we are to be on tour for the first time in 15 years and seeing your excitement every night has made it all worth it. Thank you! We plan to announce all rescheduled shows in the next week or two. And we will start the tour again on Tuesday, April 26th in Austin for two nights at the Mohawk. Get ready, Texas!
This postponement is the reality of touring in 2022, but it does not take away how financially crippling it is for everyone involved - especially our good friends and supporting bands, 7Seconds & Negative Approach. We are selling silk screened posters signed by Keith Morris, John Brannon & Kevin Seconds in our online shop. All profits from this and the North American Flyer T-Shirt will be split equally between the three bands. If you want to support this tour, this is the best way to do it. Link in bio.
We will continue to provide updates on Keith and all things Circle Jerks on our socials. We wish Keith a speedy recovery and cannot wait to see you all soon.
