Dave's Frog in Throat Postpones USANA Show

UPDATE: 09/16/09 - The USANA show that was originally postponed on September 1st has now officially been canceled.

Official announcement via DMB's Management:

We regret to announce that Dave Matthews Band is unable to reschedule the USANA Amphitheatre show in West Valley City, UT originally planned for September 1, 2009. Refunds will be issued from the point of purchase.     

If you purchased your tickets at an outlet or the USANA Amphitheatre box office, please be sure to fill out the contact information form provided at the time your refund is issued so that you may be contacted in the future.  

On behalf of the members of DMB, we truly apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused.

Dave Matthews Band officially announced today that the September 1st performance at USANA Amphitheatre in West Valley City, UT has been postponed due to doctor-diagnosed strain on Dave Matthews' vocal chords.

Dave Matthews twittered yesterday: "I had a very good day. But the frog in my throat turned out to be a cane toad." and later "I'm afraid my voice is f*cked. I'm sorry if I sound like shit. Doctors. Give that horse a shot so he can finish the race."

These kinds of things happen and it is best that Dave rests and gets better rather than make matters worse. Unfortunately for Utah, this is the second year in a row that the show has been postponed. Last year cancelled due do LeRoi Moore's funeral.

Currently all other performances will continue as scheduled. Ticket holders for the Utah show should stand by for further information for a rescheduled date, which will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
