Dave Chappelle has cancelled his big weekend shows in Austin, Texas at the Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater, after testing positive for Covid-19.

“Dave Chappelle is quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19. His remaining shows at Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, TX have been cancelled and ticket holders should contact their point of purchase for refunds,” a rep for the comedian said in a statement.

“Chappelle has safely conducted socially-distanced shows in Ohio since June 2020 and he moved those shows to Austin during the winter.

Dave Chappelle implemented COVID-19 protocols which included rapid testing for the audience and daily testing for himself and his team. His diligent testing enabled him to immediately respond by quarantining, thus mitigating the spread of the virus. Chappelle is asymptomatic.”

Live Nation was the producer for the shows, which carried a hefty $1,600 per table (plus tax and unspecified fees) admission for a six-person table, or $1,400 for four people.

Dave Chappelle was set to team with Joe Rogan on two nights. The other three dates were billed as “Dave Chappelle and Friends,” but no specifics on who would appear were given.

According to TMZ, which first reported about Chappelle’s positive test, he performed the first of the five shows in Austin Wednesday night in the stand, with the rest scheduled for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
