Levon Helm has postponed tonight’s show at Montclair, NJ’s
Wellmont Theatre due to a back injury. Deer Tick were slated to open the show. This is the second time Helm has postponed his appearance at the Wellmont: Helm canceled a show at the venue earlier this year due to a medical procedure. In addition, this Saturday’s Midnight Ramble has also been postponed.
A note from Helm reads:
Unfortunately, tonight’s Levon Helm show at The Wellmont Theater has been postponed. Levon has had a slipped disk in his back this past few weeks as you may have heard, and despite daily therapy, it hasn’t healed enough for him to move freely enough to travel or sit at the drums for any length of time. Levon would like to assure everyone that his health otherwise has been excellent as of late. Levon and the band have had a strong run of touring this past month and were very much looking forward tonight’s show in Montclair with Deer Tick. Levon and the band are eager to get back on the road and hope to see all the fans soon. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.
