NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan show scheduled for later this week at Bridgestone Arena has been postponed, the Nashville venue announced Tuesday night.
Bridgestone Arena posted to its Twitter page that the event organizers had postponed the show, which was set for Friday. The venue added that all advance COVID testing scheduled to place at Bridgestone Arena had been cancelled.
Live Nation announced Wednesday afternoon that the show would be rescheduled for October 24. The postponement comes as Joe Rogan tested positive for COVID-19.

Event organizers previously announced that a negative COVID test would be required to attend the show, and that masks would be “strongly encouraged.”
