Winter Weather Cancels Covington, KY Show

Posted on: February 05, 2014

We are sorry to announce that tonight’s show (Wednesday, February 5) in Covington, KY is canceled due to snow and ice that has been falling in the Cincinnati area since last night. While we’d love to play for you, with a level 2 snow emergency declared for the area, we’re more concerned with your safety and seeing you our next time through than forcing this one in. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. You can check the Tour Page to find out where you can catch DSO on the rest of this tour. Stay safe and warm and we’ll see further down the road!
