Chris Stapleton Postpones Show Due To Air Quality
Chris Stapleton has postponed a show in Syracuse, New York, this week (6/7) because of the air quality due to the fires in Canada, causing smoke to fill the air in much of the Northeastern United States.
Chris’ team posted to his Instagram, “Due to the ongoing air conditions in the greater Syracuse area, tomorrow night’s show at St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview will be rescheduled to a later date. All previously purchased tickets for the original date will be honored for the new date. We expect to have an update by mid-day Friday, June 9th. – Team CS.”
Many fans responded to the post with one writing, “Anticipating good news of quick rescheduling @calinamayo and I need a mammas night out!” Another fan commented, “Good call. We’ll see you when you come back.” One more fan said, “You are the soul of America. You transcend so much. I cannot wait to see you perform live.”

The National Weather Service said in an air quality alert issued for New York, “The New York State Department of Health recommends that individuals consider limiting strenuous outdoor physical activity to reduce the risk of adverse health effects.”
On Wednesday evening (6/7), the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre reported 45 fires currently burning.
Stapleton recently posted a photo of himself and his wife, Morgane, at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, checking out a display of his own items. He recalled the first time he came to the Music City.
Stapleton captioned the post on Instagram, “When I was a kid, my family took a vacation to Nashville. The first time I ever picked up a guitar and the first time I ever set foot in the Country Music Hall of Fame happened on the same day. I vividly remember looking at all the bronze faces on the plaques and feeling a sense of wonder at their accomplishments.”
He added, “I feel uniquely honored to be featured among so many heroes and can’t help but hope that someone walking through these highlights & memories will be as inspired as I was that day.”
