Prior to that, Shakey Graves had posted the following on his Facebook yesterday:

Hey guys!
Look, the truth is that touring is back but it is certainly not back to normal. Playing shows makes me happier than ever before, but health concerns can not be denied.
I’ve chosen to postpone the next three shows in Wichita, KS (8/10), Kansas City, MO (8/11) and Oklahoma City, OK (8/12) so that our team can take a second to redesign our personal health and safety protocols and hopefully increase the safety of venue staff and especially you, the fans. On that note, please PLEASE do not come to shows if you are unvaccinated and/or feeling off. Also, wash your damn hands, and wear a mask at the show. I’m sorry about any inconvenience but we are figuring this out day by day. I hope you understand.
The August 10, 2021 show in Wichita, KS at Wave will be rescheduled to Friday, September 24, 2021
The August 11, 2021 show in Kansas City, MO at The Truman be rescheduled to Thursday, September 23, 2021
The August 12, 2021 show in Oklahoma City, OK at Tower Theatre OKC will be rescheduled to Wednesday, September 22, 2021
Your tickets will be valid for the new dates. If you are unable to make the new dates, refunds and/or more information will be available at your point of purchase.
