Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey have postponed the start of their Young Guns tour due to concerns surrounding the nationwide spike of COVID cases.

“We take the health and safety of the bands, road crews, local venue staff and especially our fans very seriously,” notes a statement from the bands announcing the decision. “Due to an abundance of caution regarding the recent COVID surge, we have decided to postpone the start of the Young Guns tour to Feb. 20, 2022, in Denver.”

Performances from the Denver date onward will remain as originally scheduled. Postponed shows have been rescheduled to March and April. The co-headlining trek was originally supposed to launch Jan. 21 in Chicago. Only one concert, a Jan. 28 performance that was planned to take place in Portland, Maine, has been canceled, while three additional dates have been added to the tour.

The revised itinerary can be found below.

"We played one co-headline show with Dirty Honey back in September," Mammoth WVH leader Wolfgang Van Halen noted when the tour was announced in November. "As soon as the night was over, we knew this would be a great package to take across the U.S. We couldn't be more excited to share the stage with them and give all of the fans an unforgettable night of rock music."

"People who come to our shows are going to see two bands who are looking to prove that rock 'n' roll is definitely very much alive and well," added Dirty Honey frontman Marc LaBelle. "We both carry the weight of that on our shoulders, and there’s a lot to prove."
