At the Drive-In Cancel Remaining Tour Dates
At the Drive-In's reunion tour has hit a snag as the band has been forced to cancel the remaining dates on their trek. The influential post-hardcore outfit had nixed dates earlier this week as well.
With four stops left on their routing, At the Drive-In made an announcement on their Facebook page that the rest of the tour will regrettably have to be canceled. The statement reads, "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."
The news comes following a last-minute cancelation of last night's (June 17) show in New York City as frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala had been afflicted with a vocal issue. At the Drive stated, "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." They then thanked fans for their support and have their eyes set on the future, saying, "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!"
Reuniting for the first time since 2012, At the Drive-In's comeback tour hit a bump from the start when original guitarist and co-founder Jim Ward abruptly left the band, just four days before they were slated to kick off touring activities.
