Country Music Hall of Fame group Alabama is postponing the remainder of its “50th Anniversary Tour” due to lead singer Randy Owen’s ongoing complications with cluster migraines and vertigo.
The group had hoped to continue its record-breaking 50-city tour, however, doctors have advised more time is needed for Owen to fully recover.
On Wednesday, Alabama bass player and vocalist Teddy Gentry released the following statement: “The 50th Anniversary Tour has been very special to us. The support of the fans and their energy at all of our shows has led to some of the most fun we’ve ever had on stage. As disappointed as myself, Randy, and Jeff are to have to postpone this tour for all of our incredible fans, we know that Randy’s recovery is what is most important for everyone at this time. We would like to thank our fans, promoters, and venues and we look forward to seeing you all soon.”
With that announcement, Alabama will not be performing at Hertz Arena in Estero on Sept. 28. Rescheduled dates for the tour will be announced in the coming weeks. All tickets purchased for the Hertz Arena show will be valid for the rescheduled show (when it is announced).
