Jazz-rock legends Steely Dan have canceled Saturday’s sold-out concert at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, along with two other Florida shows.

The south Fort Myers venue announced the news Thursday on Facebook.

The shows were canceled “due to COVID and health and safety protocols,” the post said. No further explanation was offered by Mann Hall or Steely Dan’s Facebook page and website.

The band was also scheduled to play Hollywood, Florida on July 28; Orlando on Aug. 1-2; and North Charleston, South Carolina on Aug. 4. All three shows have been canceled, according to Mann Hall.

Tickets purchased through Mann Hall will be refunded, the venue added.
