The Lone Bellow postpones shows due to vocal problems

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 – The Lone Bellow postponed tour dates due to vocal problems of lead singer Zach Williams.

"Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers," wrote in a Facebook posting on Wednesday. "In Denver a couple days ago I lost my voice and went in to see a doctor. I was told that I had a cyst on my vocal chord and I needed to cancel our tour and fly home to NYC for surgery."

"Today I went in to see how the cyst was doing and I got great news! The cyst is actually a polyp and it will go away if I rest for a several days without talking. I am so sorry that we had to cancel these shows. It breaks my heart that this happened. Please know from the bottom of my heart that I am grateful that you listen to these songs and want to be a part of our shows. We will be rescheduling these shows ASAP. I am grateful for your understand that has been expressed already."

It was unclear from the posting and the band's web site which dates were postponed. At least one date in Vancouver, Canada on Friday was postponed. A Sunday date in Portland, Ore. is no longer listed. Three shows in San Francisco and Los Angeles remain on the web site for Dec. 10-12.

Concert Review: Henry comes out the other end a better man – Joe Henry mentioned at the outset that this show was not only the record release celebration, but also the anniversary - to the day - of when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Although the songs from this fine new album do not address his illness directly, they many times touch upon the big issues of human existence (life, death and the meaning of it all).... »»»
Concert Review: What's in a name? Strings lives up to it – Billy Strings may not be his real name, but the bluegrass performer more than lives up to his adopted moniker.
