Slaves singer Jonny Craig hospitalized, shows postponed
Slaves have postponed two upcoming shows in Texas and New York City as frontman Jonny Craig is currently in the hospital recovering from several back surgeries. Here is a statement from Craig:
"Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I have been forced to postpone the upcoming shows in Texas and New York City. "Over the past few weeks I had been experiencing severe back pain. After consulting with the doctor it was clear that surgery was necessary. In this time, I have undergone three back surgeries. I'm beginning post surgery recovery and will have to remain hospitalized for the present time to properly heal from these surgeries and get back to full health before I can perform. "It hurts me so much to postpone these shows, but I hope you understand this is something I need to do for my health. I am going to work to ensure that these rescheduled shows are extra special. Once I know my recovery timeline, I will get these shows rescheduled and announced as soon as possible. All tickets will remain valid and will be honored at the rescheduled shows. A special thank you to Third String Productions, Twin Productions, and New Island for their understanding and help with rescheduling these shows. "Thank you for your continuous support."
