There’s no murders in the building. Only sick people.
78-year-old Steve Martin is canceling his scheduled Friday and Saturday night shows at the Wynn in Las Vegas, citing “rampant Covid in our crew and one other essential guy,” presumably referring to himself.
Martin is currently starring in the hit Hulu series Only Murders in the Building with Martin Short and Selena Gomez.
His Twitter/X message explained the details of the cancellation.
“Dear fans and enemies, Unfortunately, our sold-out shows at the Wynn in Las Vegas this Friday and Saturday has to be postponed because of rampant Covid in our crew and one other essential guy. We are sorry for any inconvenience, but we are moving to mid-December, where your tickets will be honored with an added “date-moving tax,” of nine thousand dollars.”
Martin and Short currently appear in the third season of their hit comedy series Only Murders in the Building alongside Selena Gomez. Meanwhile, American TV personalities’ planned live recording of an episode of their podcast Strike Force Five has also been cancelled after Kimmel was diagnosed with COVID-19.
Kimmel, Fallon and Colbert were set to appear at the Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas on Saturday for the recording of the episode. “Well, Las Vegas, I got Covid, and sadly, we need to cancel this weekend’s Strike Force Three show. I could never live with myself if I got my hometown friends sick,” Kimmel wrote on X.
