Alabama Cancels Two Additional Shows as Randy Owen Deals With Health Issues

After canceling two shows in Canada on July 19 and 20, Alabama has canceled their upcoming shows in Columbus, Ga., on July 26 and Bristol, Tenn., on July 27 as frontman Randy Owen continues to deal with vertigo and migraines.

Alabama’s management company, Conway Entertainment Group, released a statement on behalf of the Hall of Fame group: “Unfortunately, the group Alabama has to announce the postponement of this weekend’s concerts in Columbus, Georgia, and Bristol, Tennessee. Randy Owen has been advised by doctors that he can not perform this weekend as he continues treatment for vertigo and migraines. We apologize for any inconvenience for those that have tickets to these shows, but wish to reassure fans that Alabama is trying to reschedule these shows as soon as possible.”

Alabama is celebrating a half-century of making music with their current 50th Anniversary Tour. The cross-country trek kicked off in January with an announced run of more than 50 shows through November, featuring an array of openers, including Charlie Daniels Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Beach Boys, John Anderson, Restless Heart, Exile, John Michael Montgomery, Scotty McCreery and more.
