The Zac Brown Band’s upcoming show at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center has been canceled as the lead singer announced Tuesday that he tested positive for COVID-19.

“I have made the difficult decision to pause Zac Brown Band’s ‘The Comeback Tour.’ Despite taking precautions, I’ve tested positive for COVID-19,” the singer tweeted. “I am deeply disappointed this has happened, as touring is our life and performing live for our fans is the best part of our job.”

The band was scheduled to play at SPAC on Sunday and at the St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater in Syracuse on Saturday, which was also canceled.

“The bottom line is that I want to take every precaution to put the health and safety of our fans and crew first. We will resume the tour as soon as I have finished the CDC-mandated quarantine and it is safe for our band members and crew to do so,” Brown posted.

Refunds will be available for those canceled shows at the point of purchase.
