Turnpike Troubadours Announce An Indefinite Hiatus

Welp…

Unfortunately for those of us that thought that this might be another short-lived thing, it appears as though the Turnpike Troubadours are on an indefinite hiatus.

Honestly, it’s no surprise after Evan Felker’s on-stage drunken escapades  that the band we all know and love is taking some time off. Lets’ be honest, it’s clearly needed. However, nothing from their Instagram post suggests that this is the end of the band.

“We want to again apologize for the abrupt cancellations of our shows this past weekend. We can assure you that the situation was not in our control.

We want nothing more than the opportunity for to heal, and to not put all of you through this ever again. To have a chance for any of this, we need to cancel all of our remaining tour dates. Turnpike Troubadours will go on an indefinite hiatus until a time we feel that everyone is of strong mind, body and spirit and can deliver what our fans deserve.

Refunds for all scheduled shows can be made at point of purchase.
To all of you who have given us so much, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You believed in us, you raised us up, you stuck by us and you gave us more unconditional love than any band could ask for. We are humbled.

We ask that you please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we work to support and encourage.
Thank you all for everything. We love you!”

Hopefully, Evan gets the help that he needs.
