Baroness U.S. Tour Dates Still A “Go"


Three members remain
hospitalized, however, and Euro tour is cancelled.


By Fred Mills


You’d be hard pressed to find someone who follows
contemporary music that hadn’t heard of the potentially tragic tour bus
that Baroness had last week in England. With 9 people sent to the
hospital, and 3 of the bandmembers still recuperating there (see above photo),
the remaining European tour dates were cancelled. But they just posted a Facebook message accompanied by the pic of
guitarist John Baizley, drummer Allen Blickle, and bassist Matt Maggioni and
all indications are that the handful of already scheduled American festival
dates is still on. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.


From the band:



“Thank you to all of
you who have been sending the tidal wave of positivity our way. We are uplifted
by its sheer magnitude, and power. Every single one of you is making our days
and nights easier and our recovery quicker. Thank you all so much, we are truly
lucky to have such incredible people on our side. A sincere and heartfelt thank
you from each of us to each of you.”
