Update: AJR revealed that part two of their “Neotheater Tour” would stop at all cities that were originally scheduled for the first part of the tour but were missed due to Jack Met’s illness.

The band took to Twitter on Nov. 22, posting an updated schedule. This showed that the band would now start their tour in Chicago on Jan. 17. They are set to perform at the UPMC Events Center on Jan. 21.


MOON TOWNSHIP – After announcing that they would be unable to perform in Buffalo and Washington D.C., AJR has announced that they will be postponing their concert in Pittsburgh at the UPMC Events Center.

The band announced on Tuesday that lead singer Jack Met would be unable to perform in Buffalo after a bad case of strep throat. According to a message from the band, the singer had no voice and it would have been dangerous for him to perform.

AJR followed up this announcement on Wednesday saying that Jack had flown home from the tour to see doctors.

At approximately 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, the band announced that they would be rescheduling the last few shows of their U.S. “Neotheater Tour” including Pittsburgh’s UPMC Events Center and Chicago.

The band was set to perform in the UPMC Events Center in Pittsburgh just the day after on Nov 22.

The band said that they will honor all tickets and are hoping to reschedule the shows for January. Current tickets will still be accepted at the rescheduled concert.
