Phoebe Bridgers has canceled her upcoming concerts at Palace Theatre, and will instead play an outdoor show. 

Bridgers announced Monday that she has decided to play only outdoor shows on her fall tour due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

That means her two shows at the Palace Theatre in St. Paul on Sept. 11 and Sept. 12 are canceled. And instead, she'll play at Surly Brewing Festival Field on Sept. 11 (it's now an 18-plus show).

Bridgers is requiring all attendees to be fully vaccinated, and concertgoers will have to present proof of vaccination (vaccination card or a picture of it) — negative COVID-19 test results won't suffice.

Plus, all staff and concertgoers will be required to wear a mask.
