The pop-heads of AJR had to call-off a show last night in Upstate New York after one of their members recovers from an illness.
The brothers were set to perform at Shea’s Performing Arts Center on Tuesday, November 19 in Buffalo, New York. However, just hours ahead of the show, the band took to Twitter to announce that they would be unable to perform. Frontman Jack Met reportedly has strep throat and his doctor told him he’s “literally not allowed to perform.”
“Jack has strep throat and no voice, and it would be dangerous to let him go on stage,” the group said in a statement. “We’ve soldiered through so many health problems for shows, but Jack’s doctor is telling him he’s literally not allowed to perform. We HATE doing this.”
Ticketholders should hold onto their tickets, as the gig will be rescheduled and tickets will be honored at the new show date. Those who are unable to make the new date should seek refunds via point of purchase.
AJR is currently on their Neotheater World Tour and just announced new dates that will run through 2020. Neotheater, their third studio album, was released earlier this year and features singles “100 Bad Days,” “Birthday Party,” and “Dear Winter.” The LP follows 2017’s The Click and Living Room from 2015.
