Levon Helm to Undergo Medical Procedure

Posted 15 Jan 2012 in Music + TV News


Not much is know at this point, but Levon Helm has shared news through his website that he’ll be missing at least three of his upcoming Midnight Ramble House concerts as he will be undergoing a medical procedure.

Here’s the statement: “Levon will be undergoing a medical procedure that will necessitate his absence from the February 11th, 18th and 25th Rambles. We wish him the best and we know he will have a speedy recovery. We’ll continue with the normal Ramble schedule with special guests joining the band. Those guests will be announced shortly.

It appears that the procedure is not anything of an emergency nature as it appears, again, at least according to his website, that he will still be performing the Midnight Rambles on January 21st, 28th and February 4th.  The start of his next tour, beginning March 2nd in Northampton, MA also appear to still be on schedule.

Levon Helm’s most recent album, Ramble at the Ryman has been nominated for a Grammy. Winners to be announced next month.
