On-going health concerns have forced Alabama to postpone the remainder of the band’s 50th Anniversary Tour.
The award-winning band shared the news with fans via social media with a message from Teddy Gentry.
“Fans and friends, unfortunately, we have to postpone the remainder of the “50th Anniversary Tour” due to Randy’s ongoing complications with cluster migraines and vertigo,” he wrote. “We truly hoped to continue this record-breaking 50-city tour, however, doctors have advised more time is needed for Randy to fully recover. Rescheduled dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Our fans are everything to us so we wanted to be the ones to tell you and hope you understand.”
He went on to thank the fans for coming out to see them on tour and explain how “very special” this tour has been to them.
“The support of the fans and their energy at all of our shows has led to some of the most fun we’ve ever had onstage,” he shared. “As disappointed as myself, Randy, and Jeff are to have to postpone this tour for all of our incredible fans, we know that Randy’s recovery is what is most important for everyone at this time. We would like to thank our fans, promoters, and venues and we look forward to seeing you all soon.”
Rescheduled tour dates will reportedly be announced in the coming weeks.
The news comes just weeks after it was announced that Alabama is a 2019 inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame. The country supergroup will also receive the organization’s first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award during the October 22 induction ceremony at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville.
