Dear Fans, We are touring in uncertain times yet we are so excited to be able to play music with you again and get back to doing what we love. Our intention is to return to tour as safely as possible for everyone at the shows. We will require proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test within 72 hours and that people wear masks to attend our upcoming shows. As a band, we have been anticipating this for a really long time but we are not sure how this will feel. All we can do is take it day by day. We're grateful to be able to give it a shot and be on this journey with you all. . Love, Big Thief⁠
