The Black Keys and Chris Young are among the most recent bands to cancel summer shows at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center due to COVID-19.

Journey with Pretenders also recently canceled its scheduled Aug. 1 performance and Alanis Morissette postponed her July 8 performance.

The Black Keys, which was supposed to perform at SPAC on Aug. 16, canceled the American leg of its “Let’s Rock” tour on Tuesday, posting “We were looking forward to seeing you all out there, but the health and safety of our fans and crew has to take priority. We hope to see you all soon” on social media.

Country singer Chris Young canceled many of his summer tour dates, including his Aug. 28 show at SPAC. Throughout the last few weeks, other bands have canceled or postponed SPAC tour dates because of COVID-19, including The Lumineers, Zac Brown Band, Celtic Woman, Dead & Company, Dave Matthews Band and others. For ticket refunds and more information visit
