Just a few days ago, legendary country band Alabama cancelled their performance at the State Fair of West Virginia, which was supposed to take place on August 16.
“Randy Owen, the lead singer is being treated for cluster migraines and vertigo and is under Doctor’s orders not to perform,” the statement read.
The statement indicated that in addition to canceling their Friday (August 16) performance at the fair, Alabama would also be canceling their appearance at the PNC Bank Arena in Holmdel, New Jersey that was scheduled for Saturday (August 17).
“The band Alabama was looking forward to performing for the fans on the 50th Anniversary Tour and apologize for the inconvenience,” the statement read in closing.
At the time, Alabama’s next tour date for their 50th Anniversary Tour was scheduled for August 23, but it turns out, it will be a while longer before they will hit the road again. The band even promoted the tour as recently as August 16.
In a brand-new statement given on Wednesday (August 21), the band revealed that they would be postponing the remainder of the tour, which has dates all the way until November 23.
“Fans and friends, unfortunately, we have to postpone the remainder of the ’50th Anniversary Tour’ due to Randy’s ongoing complications with cluster migraines and vertigo,” the statement read. “We truly hoped to continue this record-breaking 50-city tour, however, doctors have advised more time is needed for Randy to fully recover. Rescheduled dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Our fans are everything to us so we wanted to be the ones to tell you and hope you understand.”

The last time Alabama performed was on July 12. Owen’s health issues have kept them from performing ever since. We will keep Randy in our prayers.
