Guster sends their fans the following message:

We are postponing our January tour. As much as we wanted to go out there and bring joy to people who really need it, this tour was uniquely timed with the peak wave of the new covid variant. The challenges of keeping our tour bus healthy, when one infection sinks an entire tour, are daunting. We have decided to attempt these shows later in the year when there might be less distraction from the music and more people would be excited to attend.

We didn’t take this decision lightly and we recognize that our fans are fully capable of determining what situations make them comfortable and which don’t. Ryan took an informal twitter survey a couple days ago which revealed that most of our fans don’t feel comfortable attending indoor concerts in this climate.

We’ve been able to stick together for 30 years because touring has always felt like a vacation to us, and we’re going to continue to do so this summer and beyond when it feels right. Next weekend’s shows in Boston have been moved to May and we’re rescheduling the others right now, so hang on tight to your tickets!

Proof of vaccination is required for this event (see below)


Guster with special guest Ben Kweller

A versatile and literate East Coast alt-rock institution, Guster emerged in the mid-’90s with a quirky amalgam of acoustic folk and pop before adopting a more robust sound that blended stadium-ready Brit-pop grandeur with proletariat American trad-rock. Known for their earworm hooks, soaring choruses, deft guitar noodling, and early on, their distinctive hand-drumming, the band broke big in 1999 with the release of their third studio effort, Lost and Gone Forever, which included the breezy hit single “Fa Fa.” Subsequent LPs like Ganging Up on the Sun (2006), Easy Wonderful (2010), and Look Alive (2019) found similar success, yielding numerous charting singles that found their way into popular television shows and films.

Although they evolved into a full-fledged pop band, Guster began their career as an offbeat acoustic trio. The band, whose three co-founders met during freshmen year at Tufts University, spent most of the ’90s touring the college circuit and releasing independent albums, all of which featured hand percussion in lieu of a traditional drum set. Released in 1999, Lost and Gone Forever widened the band’s sound considerably, and the follow-up album found percussionist Brian Rosenworcel playing a drum set on several songs. Multi-instrumentalist Joe Pisapia joined the line-up in 2003, allowing Guster more freedom to explore a combination of folk, pop, and rock.


Masks are optional.
