Josh Abbott Band has been forced to cancel some upcoming shows because Abbott’s father suffered a stroke. The affected shows were scheduled for March 1-12.
Abbott notified fans on Facebook: “Due to my father’s debilitating condition due to a stroke almost 3 weeks ago, we will not be touring this week or next week (March 1-12). Unless a miracle occurs, we fear this will be his last week here with us. Therefore, I need to be by his side, holding my mother’s hand through it. I know you all understand, and we truly appreciate the prayers and kind comments you have all left.”
Over the past year the band has been forced to cancel shows for very personal reasons.
