System of A Down Postpones Los Angeles Stadium Shows After Serj Tankian Tests Positive for COVID-19


Serj Tankian has sadly contracted COVID-19 during the first few dates of System of A Down’s highly anticipated west coast tour dates. Now the band has been forced to cancel their shows at Bank of California Stadium this weekend. The band shared the news on social media post.

“It is with great regret that we must reschedule our Los Angeles performances to February 4th and 5th, 2022. Despite multiple precautionary measures, Serj has unfortunately tested positive for COVID.

“We’re sorry to disappoint our amazing fans with this last minute news, as we could not wait to finally play for you. However, the health of our band, crew, venue staff, and all of our fans is our top priority.

“All tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates. Refund availability will be sent to all ticket buyers via email.”

Tankian added in a separate statement: “After having 3 really fun shows, I got back to LA with flu-like symptoms.

“I am shocked that it could even be Covid as I am not just vaccinated but also incredibly careful.

“I am so sorry to have to push these dates yet again especially to those who made sacrifices to be here from out of town.

“Touring is not something I intend to continue doing down the line so these handful of shows have meant the world to me.

“Thank you for your love and understanding . Peace”.
