BLUES TRAVELER FORCED TO DROP ANNUAL
RED ROCKS APPEARANCES JULY 3RD AND 4TH--JOHN POPPER
ENTERS HOSPITAL FOR TESTING
Blues Traveler have been forced to drop the planned
annual appearances at Red Rocks Ampitheater scheduled for
July 3rd and 4th. These have been some of the band's
favorite gigs, and Red Rocks has been their home for the
July 4th week-end the past seven years.All four band
members regret that they will not be able to appear, and
wish to offer an enormous apology to their fans in
Colorado and across The United States who have planned to
make the trip into town for these performances.
John Popper has entered a hospital on the West Coast to
undergo tests. For the past few months, he has been
experiencing chest pains. Doctors have ordered him to
remain as an in-patient to monitor his condition, at
which point possible preventative steps may be taken to
improve his current physical condition.
All ticket holders should retain possession of their
tickets for the next week, at which point further
information will be announced.
Everyone here at BluesTraveler.Net has John in our
thoughts. Get well John!
