Navigating COVID-19 has been nothing short of a rollercoaster for bands, and Bleachers' sold-out St. Petersburg concert just became the latest casualty.

Today, the band went to Twitter to announce that someone on the Bleachers crew had a COVID exposure, meaning the show tonight at Jannus Live is postponed along with the band's gigs at Austin City Limits' first weekend, Tulsa, Houston and Dallas.

The band said there is no action required to get a refund. "It will automatically be sent back to your original method of purchase within 30 days. Hit up your local venue with any questions," the post said.

There's no makeup date, but Bleachers—which mistakes Tampa for St. Petersburg in its post—promised to make the date up.
