David Cook has canceled the next couple of shows on his tour schedule due to family matters.
David announced the news Saturday night from the stage of his William and Mary college concert, right before performing his single, “Light On”.
“We’re going to take the next couple of shows off, ” David told the crowd. He added that he’s only canceled one show in his entire career, and that “I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t have to.”
Today, an announcement on his website made it official:
Colby Sawyer College (New London, NH) and So. Connecticut University (New Haven, CT) Shows Canceled
We are canceling Monday and Tuesday’s shows to allow David time to deal with personal family matters. Please respect his privacy at this time. David would like everyone to rest assured that we are working with the Universities to reschedule the shows that are missed.
Best wishes to David and his family. Here’s hoping he can return to the road very soon.
David is set to perform on Idol’s Wednesday results show, in a pre-taped appearance.
