    WordPress database error: [Unknown column ‘wp_postmeta.meta_value’ in ‘field list’]
    SELECT DISTINCT wp_posts.*, MIN(wp_postmeta.meta_value) as EventStartDate, MIN(tribe_event_end_date.meta_value) as EventEndDate FROM wp_posts LEFT JOIN wp_postmeta as tribe_event_end_date ON ( wp_posts.ID = tribe_event_end_date.post_id AND tribe_event_end_date.meta_key = ‘_EventEndDate’ ) WHERE 1=1 AND wp_posts.post_type = ‘tribe_events’ AND (wp_posts.post_status = ‘publish’ OR wp_posts.post_status = ‘acf-disabled’ OR wp_posts.post_status = ‘tribe-ea-success’ OR wp_posts.post_status = ‘tribe-ea-failed’ OR wp_posts.post_status = ‘tribe-ea-schedule’ OR wp_posts.post_status = ‘tribe-ea-pending’ OR wp_posts.post_status = ‘tribe-ea-draft’ OR wp_posts.post_status = ‘private’) ORDER BY EventStartDate DESC, wp_posts.post_date DESC LIMIT 0, 1

    This error appeared after updating to the latest Events Calendar version. We’re also running Events Calendar Pro.
    The error appears on the full month calendar view and keeps future months from loading, but it does not affect individual events. It seems to be a conflict with Advance Access Manager version 5.0. and the recently-updated 5.0.1. We’ve deactivated that plugin for now, but we’ll want to be able to use it in the future, ideally …

    This seems to be a very similar issue (and almost identical error message) to the post linked below.
