BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Blue October concert at the Fox Theater that was rescheduled for December 6 has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been.

Blue October, the alternative rock band from Houston, was formed by lead singer/ songwriter/guitarist Justin Furstenfeld, his brother Jeremy and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Delahoussaye. They have released 9 studio albums, with their 10th, "This Is What I Live For" slated for release this year.

"In this age of pervasive and boundless jadedness, you might be forgiven for being taken aback when someone says to you: “I hope you’re happy.” It’d be easy to load that phrase with acerbic meaning, to interpret it foremost as coming from a place of spite and sarcasm. And nine times out of 10, you’d probably be right. But in the case of seminal musicians Blue October, the statement is disarmingly sincere," said the Fox Theater.
