Travis Tritt says he will not perform at venues that require mask mandates or vaccinations to attend.

The country artist made the announcement today on his website, sharing which shows are impacted. Four upcoming tour dates have been canceled due to venues requiring mask mandates and proof of vaccination or negative COVID test.

  • Muncie, Indiana on October 23
  • Philadelphia, Mississippi on November 6
  • Peoria, Illinois on November 11
  • Louisville, Kentucky on November 13

“I’m putting my money where my mouth is an announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated,” Tritt writes in the announcement.

“Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately. Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause.”

“I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning,” Tritt continues. “This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their entire lifetimes. There are plenty of promoters and venues around the country that appreciate fans and the freedom of choice in this great country, and those are the promoters and venues that I will be supporting.”

“I’m sorry for any inconvenience this situation creates for anyone who had purchased tickets to these shows. We will try to reschedule unrestricted shows in these areas as soon as we can.”

Travis Tritt has 13 more scheduled tour dates this year that are not impacted by this decision. Those tour dates are as follows.

  • October 21 – Troy, OH
  • October 22 – Shipshewana, IN
  • November 4 – Macon, GA
  • November 5 – Hiawassee, GA
  • November 12 – Mount Pleasant, MI
  • November 19 – Augusta, GA
  • November 20 – Columbia, SC
  • December 3 – Kansas City, MO
  • December 4 – Catoosa, OK
  • December 10 – Corpus Christi, TX
  • December 11 – Hinton, OK
  • December 16 – Greensburg, PA
  • December 17 – Jim Thorpe, PA

    The Pro-Covid Tour coming to a town near you. What a patriot!

    And just think… now all the non-mandated government employees have a concert they can attend…

    Funny how the Trump vaccines from Big Pharma don’t work. Masks don’t work. The “testing” is never accurate, and the criteria changes. Nobody can even agree whether it’s a “vaccine” or something else. Let’s completely ignore those who had Covid and have acquired immunity, because political science is more important than actual science.

    The obvious solution is more security theater and taking away your rights. Just like forcing great-grandma or 5 year olds to remove their shoes prior to getting on an airplane.

    Anybody who disagrees with authoritarian BS should be fired, ostracized, slurred as an “anti-vaxxer”, forced to wear yellow stars, and worse.

    I never thought I’d see the day where the Left sides with corrupt Big Pharma, the corrupt media, and the corrupt politicians. Who is pushing the most ridiculous, fascist policies? The Left. Seems like the Nazis and the Khmer Rouge didn’t disappear. They are alive and well in the American Left.

      You’re a fool. People don’t “acquire” immunity. Your lack of any education is evident. Then, you try to shift the topic to politics? Wow, you’re a mess. The virus doesn’t choose victims based on their political choice. How did you get so stupid?

    Highly uneducated statement. You definitely are a Trump Humper! Confederate Flag Flying truck driving skipped school human. Your post shows your in-depth anger, hatred for others and self! The post reeks deep with internal darkness. You definitely subscribe to the National Enquirer and watch Fox News! Your knowledge displays that. Speaking of the Nazis, their attitude was and is the same as yours. Please enroll in your closest university, educate thyself. And, take some medication courses during your university tenure to simmer your attitude that you have embarrassedly regurgitated to us. Wait……. Weren’t you part of the Capital Riots? Your post makes you look and appear like one of those who charged the capital; those mobile home southern type folk. Your post is a disgrace to humanity and self.

    Hey Travis T. Thank the good Lord you’re canceling – You’ve just displayed your lack of caring for others! Simple as that. How big and proud you must be for ‘thinking’ you’re being Mr Tuff man on the music scene. You’re a public embarrassment and we feel sorry for your family to have a individual family member who hates others. Overall, we hate your music, thus the reason we’re glad your counseling. Your name and this situation will be used in our lectures in our university courses. It’s time to show others how some musicians really think they are God and what they act like. You’re neither, but you’ve given us great lecture material. Sad day for you – but that matches your music.

    Love Travis T’s manly uneducated statement ‘It won’t be tolerated’. We can’t tolerate your music. And, we don’t tolerate those who are highly uneducated in the medical field such as yourself Mr Tritt, and we don’t heed your music thumping country advise. Your day is coming to contract COVID! We’re watching and waiting. You’re LOVING the thought of holding concerts where others will become infected, but your sitting there in your little green room with rubber gloves, N95 masks etc. You’re a two faced musician! And both faces indicate a hatred for others’ health! Please cancel more venues, we beg of you! This way, you’re helping stop the spread of the virus. And please, try not to reschedule; we beg that if you also. Well, signing off and waiting for the news when you contract COVID.

    Well… it seems as if Mr. Tritt has stirred up a small controversy here. Perhaps Digital News could give us all an update on any new concerts or ticket sales.
