“Hey all, So tonight we begin the Starset tour. We are really excited to get back on the road and play with these bands and for all of you.”
“Unfortunately, after a ton of consideration and medical opinions, Lou will not be with us for this run. He is having severe medical issues that need to be addressed so that he can recover fully and prevent any further damage.”
“To be very clear, this has to do with his voice, sinus issues and some inner-ear issues.”
“Part of being in a band is being able to persevere and we will do that. Brandon has been rehearsing and practicing and we are really confident that you will be getting a full Palisades experience. Just in a new way.”
“We wish Lou a speedy recovery and will see all of you out there!”
