Miss Saigon at The Fox Theatre

“As we navigate the escalating and continually evolving COVID-19 situation, and with Governor Brian Kemp’s declaration of a Public Health Emergency in Georgia as of March 14, the Fox Theatre is temporarily closing effective immediately. We anticipate the closure will last at least two weeks, but Fox Theatre management will continue to evaluate based on the latest information from local and national public health officials. As a result, the upcoming performances of MISS SAIGON from March 17-22, 2020 will be postponed.

IF YOU ARE A TICKET HOLDER, PLEASE KEEP YOUR TICKETS AS WE WORK TO RESCHEDULE MISS SAIGON. We are navigating an unprecedented situation in real-time, and ask for your patience. We will be in touch as soon as possible with more information on the status of this event. We will continue to closely monitor the situation in an effort to make informed decisions with the health and well-being of our audience, staff, cast and crew remaining a steadfast priority.

Allie X at The Masquerade (April 11)

Like so many other musicians, I’m very sad to announce that I am postponing my upcoming North American Tour. I’m truly so disappointed.  I’ve been so eager to get out on the road and sing these songs for you. But, given the current state of affairs surrounding COVID-19, I feel it is the right decision for the health and well being of all. Please wait for me. I am working on rescheduling these dates and am looking forward to rejoicing, crying, dancing, screaming and laughing with you. You all mean so much to me.  Take care of yourselves and each other.
