“It is incredibly difficult to make the decision to cancel shows and disappoint our loyal fans who have been so good to us over the years,” Jay DeMarcus said. “The schedule of shows this past weekend, coupled with media days in New York City, have left him without a voice. We promise to return as soon as we can and give our fans the best show possible!” Continue Reading

It’s one or the other. I’m not sure which one it is. Probably a combination of both.” Continue Reading
