A full statement from Rob Lynch read; “After some hard behind-the-scenes work by some very good people, I’m so happy to announce that Allison Weiss and I will still be touring the UK together as originally planned.
Unfortunately, our former tour mate Jake McElfresh (Front Porch Step) has dropped off the dates due to a very sensitive personal situation. Though this news almost derailed the whole tour, Allison and I have just learned that the two of us will still be able to play the originally scheduled shows*.
Despite the upsetting nature of recent events, Allison and I feel that these shows will be even more special than before. We’ve chosen to celebrate the power and unity of live music, and focus on all of the positive energy brought into our lives through this scene.
We would love if you would join us to make these 10 days the best they can be!
Lastly, we’d like to thank everyone for all of the support you’ve sent our way in the past week. We couldn’t do this without you.”
