Modest Mouse back in BSMF lineup after negative COVID test

Beale Street Music Fest announced Thursday that the band will return to the stage Sunday after lead singer Isaac Brock tested negative for COVID-19.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The band Modest Mouse is back in the lineup for Beale Street Music Festival after previously cancelling their appearance due to a positive COVID test. 

Beale Street Music Fest announced the return Wednesday via social media, confirming that the band had been cleared to return to the lineup after negative tests.

The band canceled their appearance after their lead singer, Isaac Brock, tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week.

"We're sorry to say that after suddenly feeling ill, Isaac tested positive for Covid-19 this evening, shortly before we were due to take the stage in Atlanta," the band said Monday. "With that in mind, we've had to make the painful but unavoidable decision to postpone tonight's show along with the remaining shows we're due to play this week, in the interest of safety. In the coming days we're going to work to reschedule the shows. Any ticket holders should keep an eye out for communication regarding refunds etc from your local promoter."

The band will perform Sunday on the Terminix Stage, according to the festival's website.
