Alabama was forced to cancel two dates on their 50th Anniversary Tour as frontman Randy Owen deals with vertigo and migraines.
The Hall of Fame group of Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry and Jeff Cook cancelled their shows at TD Place Stadium in Ottawa, ON, on July 19 and at the Big Sky Music Festival in Oro-Medonte, ON, on July 20.
“We hope to return to both Ottawa and Oro soon, and apologize to all of the fans for not being able to perform,” said Alabama in a statement via TD Place Stadium.
Alabama is celebrating a half-century of making music with their current 50th Anniversary Tour. The cross-country trek kicked off in January with an announced run of more than 50 shows through November, featuring an array of openers, including Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Beach Boys, John Anderson, Restless Heart, Exile, John Michael Montgomery, Scotty McCreery and more.
