Die Dropkick Murphys sind auf ihrer aktuellen US-Tour in einen schweren Unfall verwickelt worden - ein Mann wurde von ihrem Van überfahren; die Polizei geht von einem Selbstmord aus. Die Band schreibt:
Hello Tulsa fans. We have some tough news - we have to cancel tonight's show at Cain's Ballroom.
After last nights San Antonio show we were enroute to the Dallas airport to drop off Al and then continue on to Tulsa (as we mentioned yesterday Al is flying home for the funeral of a life long friend). Sadly however, at around 3 a.m. just north of Austin, we were involved in a tragic and fatal accident when a pedestrian suddenly ran onto the highway in front of our tour bus. Police suspect a suicide.
We were left with a driver that has been severely shaken up by the accident and a bus too damaged to continue onto Tulsa.
Throughout the early morning hours we tried every possible way to get our band and gear to Tulsa but we've simply run out of time.
As much as it pains us to miss a show and we truly apologize for it, we'd like to stop and acknowledge that a man has lost his life. Please keep him and any family he might have in your prayers."
