We received this note from Dan Hick’s booking agent two days ago (Thursday, Mar 18, 2015)…….
We’re sharing the news, just received, that Dan Hicks will undergo treatment for liver cancer, at Stanford University hospital, starting on March 20. While the prognosis for recovery is good, we need to postpone all upcoming performances beginning with the shows next week through the spring and summer dates. We hope to reschedule dates starting in October, going forward. We apologize for the short notice and inconvenience related to the upcoming changes, and ask that, at this time, you keep Dan in your thoughts and prayers. We look forward to having Dan back on his feet and being able to reschedule our upcoming performances later this year or early 2016. Thanks for your understanding.
>From all of us at SRO,
So, we are sad to have to tell you that the Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks show scheduled for the Fur Peace Ranch on Saturday, March 28th is cancelled. We are still going to go ahead and have a concert on that same night. The New Riders of the Purple Sage have agreed to come in and pinch hit for Dan on that evening. The New Riders are a great show and the band features the only two surviving members of the original band, David Nelson and Buddy Cage, along with a great rhythm section that has helped to keep this band cooking for the past 10 years. We are thrilled to be hosting the NRPS here at Fur Peace and hope you will be too!
If you are a ticket holder you have two options……You can still come to the Fur Peace on March 28th for a great night of music with the New Riders of the Purple Sage ……or if you like we can refund your ticket purchase to your credit card. We certainly hope you will elect to join us on that Saturday night. PLEASE let us know your decision within 48 hours.
We are sorry to have to cancel this show, but are thoughts are with Dan Hicks and we pray for his return to good health.
Thank You for your understanding!
(As of this posting on Friday March 20, 2015 . . . about 20 tickets are available for purchase for the performance by New Riders of the Purple Sage. Tickets are available for purchase at our Company Store.
