Tucson Jazz Festival postpones two headliners

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – Two 2022 Tucson Jazz Festival shows have been postponed, organizers said on Tuesday, January 4.

Headliner Jon Batiste is postponing his concert, originally scheduled for January 21 at Centennial Hall, due to “unforeseen circumstances”.

Herb Alpert also had to postpone his concert.

Organizers say they are working with the two artists to reschedule their concerts at a later date.

“We realize that due to the Omicron virus the situation is fluid and that further changes to the festival schedule may be needed,” Khris Dodge, executive director of the festival, said in a press release. “We will keep the public informed of any further changes. “

While the postponement of those two shows is disappointing, Dodge said, the 2022 lineup still includes some of the best performers in the world of jazz today.

“There will be a lot to enjoy at our indoor and outdoor venues Jan. 14-23,” said Dodge.

Organizers say guests can expect all safety standards in place at every event. For the security protocols on each site, visit their individual websites.
