Spoon has canceled the band’s planned New Year’s Eve show at ACL Live in Austin, Texas, due to “COVID cases amongst artists on the bill” and “the extremely sharp rise in COVID cases in the Austin community.”

“We hate it,” Spoon says of having to cancel. “We all needed this show on multiple levels and we wanted nothing more than to celebrate the end of this year with you.”

“Here’s hoping that there will be some calm and lots of shows in the not so distant future,” the band adds. “We’re working on setting up dates for later spring right now. We love y’all. Be safe out there.”

Those who purchased tickets will receive an email with refund options.

Spoon will release a new album called Lucifer on the Sofa on February 11. It includes the lead single “The Hardest Cut.”
