Bad news, Fall Out Boy fans in New York and Boston: the band won't be playing these next two dates of the Hella Mega Tour.

The Chicago pop-punk titans will be missing gigs at New York's Citi Field and Boston's Fenway Park on August 4 and 5 due to "an individual on the band's team testing positive for COVID".

A statement explains, however, that "everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew, are fully vaccinated", and all are keeping to their own bubbles on the road. Also, Green Day, Weezer and The Interrupters will still be playing as planned.

Read the full statement below:

"Out of an abundance of caution, Fall Out Boy will not perform at the New York and Boston shows of the Hella Mega Tour due to an individual on the band's team testing positive for COVID. Green Day, Weezer and The Interrupters will perform as scheduled.

"It's important to note that everyone on the entire tour, both band and crew, are fully vaccinated. Each band and their crew have operated in a bubble independently to safeguard everyone as much as possible at each show and in between shows. The tour also has a COVID safety protocol officer on staff full-time that is ensuring everyone is closely following all CDC guidelines."
