Higher Ground announced on Friday that the Courtney Barnett shows scheduled for February 10 and 11 at the Higher Ground Ballroom have been postponed after the Australian indie rocker contracted COVID-19.

"I am so upset to tell you that an hour ago I tested positive to COVID-19," Barnett said in a press release. "I'm doing okay, but effective immediately we have to postpone the rest of the shows on our USA tour."

Along with the two Burlington dates, Barnett postponed shows in Philadelphia, New York City, Boston and New Haven, Conn.



"These are shows that I've been waiting years to play and I'm devastated we'll have to wait longer," Barnett wrote. "I am thankful however that we've been able to play the shows we have. Big love to my band and crew."
Barnett had recently added a second Higher Ground date after selling out the Ballroom. The club stated on social media that it is working with Barnett to reschedule the shows, with more details to follow soon. Visit Higher Ground's website for more information.
