Two dates on Eddie Vedder‘s ongoing solo tour are being postponed due to a positive COVID-19 case.

“We have been following COVID protocols but still had a positive test in our touring party,” reads a statement posted to the Pearl Jam frontman’s Instagram. “The appropriate response is to postpone the next two shows. Everyone, please take care.”

The affected dates include stops in San Diego and Los Angeles, originally scheduled for February 15 and 17, respectively. The shows will now take place February 25 in LA, and February 27 in San Diego.

Previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new dates. Refunds are available for those who can no longer attend.

The tour is expected to continue February 21 in Seattle. Vedder has been supporting his new solo album, Earthling, with his Earthlings solo band, which features Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, ex-RHCP guitarist and current Pearl Jam touring member Josh Klinghoffer, Jane’s Addiction bassist Chris Chaney, singer-songwriter Glen Hansard, and guitarist and producer Andrew Watt.
