Alabama frontman Randy Owen has continued to experience issues with cluster migraines and vertigo, leaving the group no choice but to cancel two more scheduled shows in August 2019. The band scrapped their scheduled Friday (Aug. 16) performance at the State Fair of West Virginia in Lewisburg, West Va., and their Saturday (August 17th) performance in Holmdel, N.J.
In a statement, Tony Conway of Ontourage Management broke the news to Lewisburg concertgoers, writing: "Randy Owen, the lead singer, is being treated for cluster migraines and vertigo and is under doctor's orders not to perform... The band Alabama was looking forward to performing for fans on the 50th Anniversary Tour, and apologize for the inconvenience."
The legendary country group previously canceled shows on July 26th and July 27th due to Owen's health issues. Before that, the vertigo and migraines their frontman suffers also forced them to cancel performances on July 19th and July 20th. The band has not given any performances between the nixed July shows and the just-canceled August appearances; their last tour stop was on July 12. Their next scheduled concerts are on August 23rd in Grand Rapids, Mich. and August 24th in North Lawrence, Ohio.
