Travis Tritt has announced he will not perform at venues that require proof of COVID vaccination, mask mandates or testing.
Multi-platinum selling and award-winning artist and actor, Travis Tritt has announced he will not perform at venues that require proof of COVID vaccination, mask mandates or testing. As a result, Tritt has cancelled four US shows scheduled in October and November, respectively.
In a statement, Tritt said: “I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated. Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being cancelled immediately.
Many people are taking a firm stand against these mandates around the country, and I wholeheartedly support that cause. I have been extremely vocal against mandates since the beginning. This is a sacrifice that I’m willing to make to stand up for the freedoms that generations of Americans have enjoyed for their entire lifetimes. There are plenty of promoters and venues around the country that appreciate fans and the freedom of choice in this great country, and those are the promoters and venues that I will be supporting.”
Shows that do not have mandates will continue as scheduled.

Back in August, Tritt first issued an official statement about vaccine discrimination, saying he felt compelled to make it due to mask mandates and other policies.
The statement read, “I have always been a huge defender of basic human rights and liberty for all. No government, employer, or private entity should ever be allowed to infringe on those rights and liberties. I’m also very much against discrimination of any kind. All forms of discrimination need to be called out and condemned in the strongest terms possible.
For these reasons, let me say that I fully support anyone who is willing to publicly stand against discrimination and the squelching of any specific freedoms and basic human rights around the world. If you agree that any form of discrimination should be condemned and that basic human rights are worth defending, I urge you to stand up with me and let your voices be heard. The only way these injustices can be defeated is with a unified front against them. Use your voice to stand for what is right and against what is wrong. Long live freedom!”
