Horseshoes and hand grenades Albert Lee cancels New Years Eve shows in Milwaukee


Two artists announced today that they have canceled their New Years concerts in Milwaukee.

Horseshoes & Hand Grenades’ December 31, 2021 concert at the Pabst Theater has been rescheduled until the next New Years Eve, December 31, 2022, at the Turner Hall Ballroom. Tickets for the canceled concert will be honored on the postponed date of next year. “Ticket holders should email [email protected] by January 31 if the new show date does not fit their schedule,” according to the Pabst Theater Group.

“We are heartbroken to announce that our NYE show at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, WI has been rescheduled,” the group wrote in a statement. “We have a sick band member and we feel more and more concerned about doing the show all week. We are so grateful that we can play music for all of you. Days and times like this are quite uncomfortable to swallow. We wish you all good health and joy this holiday season, despite the challenges we all face right now across the world. “

Blues veteran Albert Lee’s New Years concert at Anodyne Coffee has also been postponed. No new date has been announced, but ticket holders can either use their tickets at a future date or have their tickets refunded.

The Cactus Club New Years event, which was supposed to feature bands and DJs, was also canceled. Last week, the venue announced it was temporarily closing amid the surge in Covid-19 cases in Milwaukee.

Some restaurants are also closing. Odd Duck will remain closed until January 5, while Beans & Barley will be closed for indoor dining until January 5.

City health officials have stressed that Covid-19 vaccines and boosters offer the best protection against the virus. For more information on vaccines, you can visit Radio Milwaukee’s Vaccine Resource Guide.
