Josh Abbott Band Cancels Shows Following Vegas Shooting

The Josh Abbott Band has cancelled two tour dates after the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival shooting.

The group wrote on their Instagram:

“This week has been emotional as we try to process what happened. It would be disingenuous for us to pretend like this is a normal week of shows.”

The band played at the Route 91 Fest and stayed at the Mandalay Hotel, where the shooter was stationed. According to the Boot, the band was locked out of the hotel while Josh Abbott’s fiancee Taylor was in lockdown inside.

Josh Abbott Band’s guitarist Caleb Keeter also drew attention following the event by publicly changing his stance on gun control on Twitter.

The band will resume their tour on Oct. 14.
