TONY JOE WHITE 2018 – CANCELLED

Tony Joe White cancellation

 

It is with great regret we need to advice you that the forthcoming tour by the great TONY JOE WHITE this October has been cancelled, Tony Joe is not a young man, and the years of rockin’ appear to be taking their toll. After a recent show at Nashville’s legendary Ryman, the great man was almost unable to walk after suffering severe pain in his calves and had to be helped off the stage while in extreme pain. Since then the discovery of a bulging disk in his back has meant an immediate end to future engagements that involve significant travel until physical therapy can hopefully reinstate him to a healthy state for travel.

Tony Joe was to perform at the Out On The Weekend festival, as well as headline shows in Auckland, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney. Full refunds for the festival will be available for a week only until midnight on Tuesday, September 11. Ticket holders for all other shows will be contacted by the relevant ticketing agencies and receive a full refund.

From Love Police. “Tony Joe is the first ever act we toured some 22 years ago. We have a had a long and beautiful relationship with the Chomper, and although there is disappointment in this cancellation, we only send him love and strength in his recovery. We hope to bring him down here again once he has recovered for all his adoring fans to experience his greatness one more time.”

From management. “Tony Joe has a bulging disc in his back that will require physical therapy for the next 3-4 months, and possibly require surgery down the road if the condition does not improve.

The particular discs that are bulging have affected his ability to walk around comfortably because they are connected to his lower legs. Traveling on an airplane for 20+ hours each way to/from Australia would cause him tremendous pain and traveling on more planes and vans to get around the country would further add to the discomfort he currently he has in his back. Plus, it would not be safe for him to get around the venues and hotels because of the effect this is having on his lower legs.

We must also consider that Tony Joe is 75 years old, so his doctor has advised him to postpone these tour dates until after he has completed the program and had a follow up MRI”

We thank you for your understanding.
