Hours after BC announced restrictions which impact events with 1,000 people or more, Rogers Arena has announced that the Dave Chappelle concert, originally scheduled for New Year’s Day, has been rescheduled to April 2022.
The restrictions force events with over 1,000 people to reduce capacity by 50%.
Existing tickets will be honoured accordingly, and the show’s new date is set for Saturday, April 23.
