I have to cancel tomorrow's show in Birmingham. First, thank you Cincy. Felt every ounce of love y'all sent our way. Especially y'all in the lawn getting rained on and going crazy. I feel like we each gave each other all we had. Man... I have never missed a show from being sick, ever. unfortunately, I have to cancel tomorrow's show. I am so so sorry. There was no way I was gonna miss the first week of this summer WTH tour, but I am sick and have pushed myself too far and have no voice now. I would post a pic of what is coming out of my nose but it's beyond what you really want to see. I am so truly sorry to all the folks in bham. I love the city, love the state of Alabama and will make it up to y'all as soon as possible. Hate it. Sorry.
