Walk The Moon Cancels Upcoming Tour

From the band’s facebook page:


We are deeply sorry to say that, due to a serious illness in Nick’s family, we must cancel this summer’s Work This Body Tour. For many years now, Nick’s dad has been suffering from Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease. Unfortunately, it’s reached a point where he needs to come home and focus on his family for awhile. Out of respect for the immediate commitments we’ve made, we will play out the rest of our shows in May – after that, we will be taking a break from the road. All tickets to our headline shows in July + August will be refunded. With a heavy heart we send our gratitude out to our team, our industry friends, and most importantly our fans for their understanding and support. Through this time, it continues to be our dream and our mission to take the darkness in our lives and mold it into light + color. The only way out is through. <+>



Our thoughts go out to Nick and his family during this tough time.  Alzheimer’s is such a horrible disease that sadly is very common.  There are more than 3 million US cases per year.  It robs those afflicted of themselves slowly by stealing first their memories and then their awareness and cognitive function.  My Grandfather and therefore entire family battled with it for years.  I really hope a cure can be found soon.  You can read more information on Alzheimer’s Disease HERE  And if you would like to talk to someone about Alzheimer’s, there is a 24/7 Helpline: 1.800.272.3900
