Dead & Company won't be playing in the Mexican sand after all this month, as the band has just announced that it's called off its entire two-weekend Playing in the Sand destination festival.
The news of the cancellation comes after drummer Bill Kreutzmann dropped out of the event earlier this week due to health issues, and then singer/guitarist John Mayer dropped out because he got COVID-19.
On Instagram, Dead & Company posted a message that reads, "With much sadness and after great consideration of every possible scenario, the Playing in the Sand shows in Riviera Cancun on January 7-10 and January 13-16 have now been canceled...due to the spiking COVID-19 cases."
