Halestorm singer Lzzy Hale explains why group cancelled its show in Rochester, New York, USA last week
Halestorm were scheduled to play at the Marina Jeep Arena at The Main Street Armory in Rochester, New York, USA on Friday, October 6, 2017 but apparently had to cancel their appearance.
The following message was posted on Halestorm‘s Facebook page earlier today:
“Dear Rochester NY,
I apologize so deeply for having to cancel last weeks show. Let me tell you a bit about what had been going on. Since our show in Akron Ohio three days prior to Rochester, I had woken up with Strep Throat where it feels like I’m constantly swallowing razor blades. I did those shows anyway regardless, and I made it through. But in Rochester I came down with a high fever. I still wanted to see if I could pull it off so I didn’t make a decision until I test drove my voice. My awesome crew set everything up, and we did our soundcheck but unfortunately for the sake of my health and future voice, I had to choose rest that day.
All of you know how much I hate canceling shows, and that I’d rather muscle through and risk hurting myself than disappoint you all. But that isn’t smart. And unfortunately these smart, hard decisions fall on me.
And you know what, if we were the type of band that relied on tracks and trickery to play shows, I could’ve mimed my way through and pretended to sing. But we promised a long time ago that we’d never half-ass or fake a show, cuz that isn’t rock n Roll, and you guys deserve the real deal. Anyone who has seen our live knows that I Actually sing! What you hear is always authentic, and firing on all cylinders. That also means I’m human, and getting sick and having to miss a show are the prices I pay for being real. Thank you for all of the love Rochester and I promise I will make this up to you very soon, and make it special!!
I hope you had great time with our new friends in Greta Von Fleet and our buds in New Year’s Day that night! Just know Rochester that I do not take this shit lightly. And I will rock your beautiful faces soon!
Update: I am on the mend, every day is continually better and I’m taking care of myself,
Love you all madly.
