NASHVILLE, Tn. — Country Music Hall of Fame group ALABAMA is postponing the remainder of its 50th Anniversary Tour, including its stop at Bristol’s Thunder Valley Amphitheater.
Bristol Motor Speedway released the following statement following the postponement:
We are saddened to hear about Randy Owen’s on-going health issues that have unfortunately led to the postponement of their 50th Anniversary Tour. We continue to work with ALABAMA’s team on a rescheduled date for next year at the Thunder Valley Amphitheatre. No further information is available at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The 50th Anniversary Tour was postponed due to lead singer Randy Owen’s complications with cluster migraines and vertigo.
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 onstage. 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.Teddy Gentry, ALABAMA bass player and vocalist
The group had hoped to continue its record-breaking 50-city tour.
Rescheduled dates for the tour will be announced in the coming weeks.
