The At The Drive-In reunion tour has been one of the most anticipated tours of the summer, and unfortunately, due to an illness impacting the vocal cords of frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala, the shows won’t go on.
Drummer Tony Hajjar and guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López took the stage at Terminal 5 in New York City last night to apologize to fans who showed up to see the newly reformed post-hardcore band perform. “We feel absolutely horrible but we have a goal, our goal is to continue being a band for a very long time,” Hajjar assured the audience. “Obviously we set up, we’re here. We sound-checked. We couldn’t get to it and it’s not plausible for us to do a show.”
“He can’t sing, that’s the reality, we’re bummed out, you’re bummed out, you showed up, we showed up, this is what we’re dealing with,” added Rodríguez-López.
Tonight’s show at the House of Blues in Boston has also been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a future date. Refunds are being offered to ticket holders at point of purchase. Internet and phone orders will automatically be cancelled and refunded.
Meanwhile, LIKEYOUSAID will have more updates regarding Cedric Bixler-Zavala’s health as they become available.
