Genre-bending star BRELAND was originally scheduled to perform tonight (April 5) at The Golden Record in St. Louis, MO, however, he was forced to cancel the show due to an unexpected accident while en route to the show.

BRELAND Explains What Happened

Fans were informed of this unfortunate news via social media, where BRELAND explained that he and his band were on the road when their trailer broke off the bus and “flew down the side of the highway. This resulted in damage to their equipment, which made them unable to hit the stage tonight.

BRELAND’s message read, “St Louis! I’m so sorry, but we will no longer be able to perform for you tonight. Our trailer broke off of our bus and flew down the side of the highway, damaging our equipment. We’re devastated by this turn of events, but it is beyond our control.”

He also noted that all ticket holders “will be contacted by the original point of purchase with further information 😔🙏🏾”

Fans And Fellow Artists Show Their Support

The post included the singer/songwriter’s somber face in one photo and proof of the dislocated trailer in the next slide. Luckily, BRELAND assured his followers that him, his band and the rest of the are all fine and will be back to performing as soon as possible. 

Many concerned fans and fellow artists took to the comment section to share their support amid this stressful time.
