Old Dominion Cancel Upcoming Events Following Family Member’s Death
Old Dominion have canceled two upcoming concerts, as well as a No. 1 party, following the death of an immediate family member. The band shared the news with fans on Monday (March 6).
"We've suffered a great loss in the Old Dominion family. One of our immediate family members has unexpectedly passed," the band writes on social media. "We thank you in advance for your prayers and your patience as we sort out the coming days. More details will be shared soon."
Old Dominion have not offered any additional details about the unexpected death. Their publicist tells The Boot that a No. 1 party, to celebrate their single "Song for Another Time," scheduled for Monday afternoon; a Wednesday (March 8) show at the Houston Rodeo; and a concert scheduled to take place in Midland, Texas, on Thursday (March 9) have all been canceled.
According to an update from the Houston Rodeo, organizers are working to book another artist in place of Old Dominion on Wednesday night. Previously purchased tickets will be refunded if ticketholders request it; more information is available on the Houston Rodeo website.
“Our hearts go out to the members of Old Dominion,” says Joel Cowley, show president / CEO, in a statement. “They have lost an immediate family member of the band and respectfully cancelled their appearance to allow time to mourn. We understand and support their decision.”
No details about refunds for tickets purchased for Old Dominion's concert at Midland's Wagner Noel PAC were available at the time of publication. Ticketholders can check the venue's official website for updates.
Old Dominion are currently scheduled to begin touring with Miranda Lambert again on March 10; they are opening up for Lambert on her Highway Vagabond Tour. The Boot will update this post as more information becomes available.
