Myles Kennedy-fronted Alter Bridge have been forced to cancel its performance this weekend at Welcome To Rockville at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.
The band was scheduled to play on Saturday (May 20) at the four-day event, which is hosting more than 95 bands, including headliners Slipknot, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold and Pantera.
Just a couple of hours before Alter Bridge was due to take the stage, the band released the following statement via social media: “Due to the recent onset of a respiratory infection that is limiting the vocal abilities of Myles Kennedy, Alter Bridge regretfully have to cancel their performance at Welcome To Rockville today. We were all really looking forward to playing for you, but there is no way that we can give you the show that you all deserve in his current condition. We thank everyone for their understanding and can’t wait to perform for you in the future.”
Welcome To Rockville was expecting to draw around 45,000 people every day.
Alter Bridge recently announced a summer 2023 leg of the “Pawns & Kings” tour, featuring support from Sevendust and Mammoth WVH. The trek will kick off on August 1 in Buffalo, New York and conclude on August 31 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. MJT will also appear at the last seven shows of the tour.
Alter Bridge’s “Pawns & Kings” album came out last October. “Pawns & Kings” is comprised of 10 all-new epic tracks that are sure to garner Alter Bridge new fans around the globe while satiating their fervent supporters that have been patiently waiting for new music from the band.
