Country star Jon Pardi has canceled his show at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater next weekend, meaning music fans looking forward to the first live concert at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater in more than a year will have to a wait a while longer.

The Tuscaloosa Amphitheater broke the bad news on social media Saturday, citing Pardi's need for vocal rest.

Any tickets purchased online through Ticketmaster will be refunded automatically. Fans who bought tickets at the Amphitheater box office should return them there for refunds.

The show, which was scheduled to take place this Thursday night, would have been the first concert at the Amphitheater since the COVID-19 pandemic came to Tuscaloosa last March.

Since the concert was announced earlier this year, Red Mountain Entertainment and the city of Tuscaloosa have continued to pack out the Coca-Cola summer concert series at the Amp, including appearances from ZZ Top, Lady A, Earth, Wind & Fire and Harry Connick, Jr. with more announcements coming soon.

With Pardi's appearance called off, the Amphitheater will sit empty a little while longer until the Celebration on the River lights up the venue on July 4th. The next scheduled concert will star Brad Paisley, who is set to play there on July 23rd.
