Hey there readers, I just wanted to point out that the band At The Drive-In has cancelled a number of the remaining dates on its US run based on illness of their singer Cedric Bixler. Check out the bands official statements below which were culled from their Facebook Page.
“Apologies to all our fans who have tickets but following our news earlier tonight, we regret to announce that all further shows on our North American tour, up to and including the Amnesia Festival appearance on June 25th are cancelled. Tickets can be refunded from point of purchase. We will be back to make up these shows in the future. Thank you for your continued support.”
This message was preceded by a notice about last nights area appearance in our NYC Metropolis and Terminal 5…
“Apologies to all our fans in NYC that were coming to our show. Cedric has a health concern with his vocal chords and can’t perform this evening. It is not possible to play without furthering his injury. Thank you for your support! ATDI has a goal to be a band for a very long time and we don’t want to impede that in any way. We will be back! Tickets can be refunded from point of purchase.”
Which was preceded by this 6/15 cancellation notice…
“Due to unforeseen circumstances At the Drive-In will have to cancel tonight’s show at the 9:30 Club. Cedric has been fighting off a cold and has now lost his voice making it impossible for us to play for you tonight. Please stand by for further details. Our sincere apologies. #atdi2016”
Remaining Cancelled Dates:
June 17: Terminal 5 – New York, NY
June 20: Saint Andrew’s Hall – Detroit, MI
June 21: Saint Andrew’s Hall – Detroit, MI
June 23: Phoenix Concert Theatre – Toronto, ON, Canada
June 24: Phoenix Concert Theatre – Toronto, ON, Canada
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey I know the rigors of touring can be detrimental to any musician, especially the singer and while I know less than a % about this particular band I hope that their singer is back up to the tast ASAP so his fans can enjoy their music as they expected to. Hopefully there isn’t more to the story that we aren’t hearing. Let’s remember that Lemmy performed while very ill night after night and even Steven Wilson did shows with a full on bronchitis and just had other band members sing. Feel better Cedric.
