Statement from Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway: ALABAMA POSTPONES THUNDER VALLEY AMPHITHEATRE CONCERT
ALABAMA has informed the Thunder Valley Amphitheatre at Bristol Dragway that they will be unable to perform Saturday’s concert due to ongoing health issues for lead singer Randy Owen.
“Unfortunately, the group ALABAMA has to announce the postponement of this weekend’s concerts in Columbus, Georgia and Bristol, Tennessee,” said Tony Conway, Conway Entertainment Group. “Randy Owen has been advised by doctors that he cannot 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.”
All tickets purchased through Thunder Valley Amphitheatre (Bristol Motor Speedway and Dragway) and Ticketmaster will be honored on the rescheduled date. If the ticketholder is unable to attend on the rescheduled night, they may contact their point of purchase for a refund.
“We were anticipating an incredible night of music under the lights, but we can’t argue with doctor’s orders, so we wish Randy Owen a speedy recovery,” said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager of the Thunder Valley Amphitheatre. “Thank you to all of those who made the Thunder Valley Amphitheatre’s inaugural concert a sellout. While this is disappointing, we remain committed to bringing great entertainment to this region.”
