(WXYZ) — The Doobie Brothers are postponing their September 2 show at DTE Energy Music Theatre after a member of the touring personnel tested positive for COVID-19.

The postponement is the second to hit DTE in two days. Kiss canceled their September 1 show yesterday after Gene Simmons tested positive for the coronavirus. Simmons has also been experiencing symptoms.

The Doobie Brothers are in the midst of their 50th-anniversary tour. The positive test is also leading them to postpone their upcoming shows in Burgettstown, PA, Toledo, OH, and Cincinnati, OH. They are expected to resume their shows September 9 at the Blossom Music Center in Cayuhoga Falls, Ohio.

Fans are being told to hold onto their tickets. Dates for the rescheduled shows will be announced soon.
