Head East News

A Message To Our Fans - June 12, 2021

We are excited to return to live performances for our fans, who are like family to us. This last 15 months has been especially traumatic for those who have lost loved ones or personally suffered from COVID-19. We extend our most sincere sympathy to those who have suffered great losses.

As we emerge from the pandemic, it is important to exercise caution as we greet each other. Until further notice we will follow these practices:
1. Follow local mandates for distancing, group size, and mask-wearing.

2. We may not have merchandise sales or autograph sessions at all shows. Local mandates and venue size will be used to make this decision. AND we may not know this until we arrive at the venue.

3. For now we will greet fans after the show from a distance. As fun as hugs, handshakes, and photos are, we don't feel these are safe at this time.
Help kick COVID-19, get your vaccine. While the vaccines are safe and effective not everyone can get vaccinated, most notably kids under the age of 12. Also no vaccine is 100% effective. If you aren't feeling well or have a cough or fever, please don't attend the show. We will catch you next time around.
