Thrice Cancel Next Few Shows, May Drop Off Tour

by | Nov 19, 2009

Thrice have canceled their next few shows, and may be forced to drop off their current tour due to a family emergency. The band issued the following statement:

“I’ll get the bad news out of the way first.

Teppei had to leave the tour last night due to a family emergency, and will not be playing with us for the next few shows (and possibly the rest of the tour.) We fully understand and support his decision to do so, and hope that you’ll be understanding as well. He started this tour knowing that this would be a possibility, and toughed it out for as long as he possibly could. Please send as many positive thoughts as you can muster in his, and his family’s direction.

The good news is that we have a few friends out here on tour who have stepped up, learned a few songs a piece, and will be joining us on stage to enable us to get through a full set, and help us get through this difficult time. The tour will continue as planned. It’ll just be a little different.

Thanks for your understanding and support during this time. We appreciate it. –Riley, Ed, & Dustin”
