Tedeschi Trucks Band member Kofi Burbridge suffered a heart attack last night.
In a statement, Tedeschi Trucks Band said, “After undergoing emergency heart surgery yesterday in Atlanta, our brother Kofi Burbridge is now resting in the hospital and beginning the earliest stages of his recovery while surrounded by family, bandmates and friends. Our thoughts are with Kofi and we ask for privacy and patience for the moment until we have further updates to share about his condition.”
Tedeschi Trucks Band are slated to kick off a run that begins July 1 with The Wood Brothers and Hot Tuna. There is no word on whether or not Burbridge will be joining the band on the road in the immediate future.
