The rally organizer never announced a location for the Birmingham event, and hasn’t yet announced a location in Mobile.

Former President Donald Trump’s rally planned for Birmingham on June 18 has been canceled, and a new rally is set for Mobile on July 9. 

Al.com first reported the changes, citing an email from the American Freedom Tour.

“Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, we have been forced to postpone the event in Birmingham, Alabama,” an email from the organization said, according to Al.com. “We are very sorry for any inconvenience. On June 18th, instead of Birmingham, we will be in Northern Mississippi, outside of Memphis. Also, we are expecting to be in Mobile, Alabama on July 9th.”

An employee at American Freedom Tour told AL.com that it wasn’t yet clear where the Mobile rally will take place. The tour company never announced where the planned Birmingham rally was to take place either. 

Al.com also reported that a spokesman for Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson said the city has no information about the planned Trump rally in July, and the city hadn’t been contacted by organizers.
