– A bout with pneumonia forced the Drive By-Truckers to cancel five dates this month with three already rescheduled for late March.
Lead singer Patterson Hood was forced to sit out of this past weekend's shows due to walking pneumonia and "needs some more time to recuperate," according to the band's web site. "The band sends their sincere apologizes."
The following dates were postponed:
Tuesday, Feb. 24 Lexington, Ky.
Wednesday Feb. 25 Milwaukee
Thursday Feb. 26 St. Louis
Friday Feb. 27 Memphis
Friday Feb. 28 Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Rescheduled dates are:
Thursday March 26 Lexington, Ky.

Original tickets will be valid for the rescheduled shows. Anyone unable to make the new date may obtain a refund at the point of purchase.
The Alabama and Milwaukee dates were canceled. "We apologize to the fans in Milwaukee and Tuscaloosa and will do our best to get back there as soon as we ca," the web site said.
