This from the Turnpike Troubadours and from Billy Bob’s Texas:

Turnpike Troubadours

Turnpike Troubadours was to have played at Billy Bob’s Texas the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 23. They have had to cancel. They will be playing at Choctaw Casino in Durant, Okla., in February.

First and foremost, you are the reason we get to do what we do every single day, and we want you to know how much that means to us. There have been many discussions on what to say publicly, and it is our unanimous opinion that our fans are our family, and there is no need to sugar coat anything. Living this life on the road has so many ups, but, like in all life situations, there are also battles and struggles with which you learn to deal.

The one core thing our band has always had is a tight family unit. The love we share with our entire team: our band members, road crew, business team and fan base feels very much like family. When one of us is down, we are there to lift them up and help them down the road. Right now, we have a situation that needs our complete attention.

For the time being, we need to put our tour on hold through November 29th, and make sure our family member is able to address something much more important than our ability to perform live. We do NOT take this incredible blessing of playing our music for our fans all over the world for granted. As much as we would all would love to keep touring, we love our family member more and need to be there to make sure he is able to conquer the issues with which he is struggling. He has our support 100% and we will be here to walk beside him and carry him if needed, no matter the outcome. We love all of you from the bottom of our heart and hope to get back to doing what we all love, which is making and performing our music for you – Our extended family – as soon as possible. As our good friends always say, “family first,” and we have to be there to make sure that this family is taken care of before getting back to business.

Thank you for understanding, and we are so thankful for the support you have shown us and continue to show us while we take some time to heal.

NOTE: Their Website manager has already removed all the concerts between now and November 30, when they will be at the ACL Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, that and the following Saturday night, December 1.

But, Billy Bob’s Texas, where they were to have appeared on Friday, November 23, has issued a statement explaining that they have enlisted William Clark Green to play November 23 in Turnpike Troubadour’s place. They also have explained to pre-show ticket buyers how to get a refund on their money. Here is Billy Bob’s Texas’ statement:

 Refunds will be available at original point of purchase. Credit cards will be automatically refunded. Cash refunds must be made in person at the Billy Bob’s Texas box office. For additional questions, please email tickets@billybobstexas.com.
