Rancid Postpone Shows With Big D And The Kids Table

Posted by - 11:13 AM on 09/01/06
Due to an unfortunate incident at their show last night, Rancid have postponed both the Buffalo and Toronto dates of their tour with Big D and the Kids Table. You can read a statement from Big D and the Kids Table regarding the incident below.
Rancid Shows PostponedUnfortunately the two shows we have with Rancid on September 1st and 3rd in Toronto and Buffalo have been postponed. Lars from Rancid collapsed on stage last night and is in the hospital for a few days. I'm pretty sure he's okay since they will be resuming the tour on the 4th. I don't know when these shows will be made up. We will still be playing Call the Office in London, ON on Saturday night.

We're all pulling for Lars and a fast recovery.

Lars had a seizure on stage and had to go to the hospital. All the shows from Sept 1-4 were cancelled and will be rescheduled with all tickets being redeemed. The tour will resume Sept 5. I really hope everyone is OK seing that I've been waiting to see these guys on a non-Warped Tour for a long ass time now.

Wouldn't make sense to cancel the 1st and the 3rd but play the 2nd.

According to the press release, both of the Toronto shows are cancelled. I received this information from Big D and the Kids Table, which is why I'm referring to it as their tour with Rancid, and which is why this statement only outlines one of the two Toronto dates. But, as far as I'm aware, both Toronto shows are postponed.

I'm pretty sure this is how it is:

Matt: lung cancer (or whatever it turned out to be)
Tim: MS
Lars: back problems/ this seizure

I could very well be wrong though.
