Slipped Disc in Back Causes Postponement of Friday’s Levon Helm Show

Posted 30 Mar 2012 in Uncategorized


A painful back caused by a slowly healing slipped disc caused the cancelation of Friday, March 30th’s Levon Helm concert that was scheduled for  the Casino Ballroom in Hampton, New Hampshire.

Here’s the official Statement.

March 30, 2012 3:11 PM

“Levon Helm and Los Lobos postponed. Please help spread the word (crushing news for us) but: Unfortunately, tonight’s Levon Helm show at the Casino Ballroom is being postponed until July 17.

“Levon has a slipped disk in his back, and despite therapy, it hasn’t healed enough for him to move freely enough 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 at the Casino Ballroom. Levon and the band are eager to come back July 17 and give you a great show.

“We are very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Tickets for the March 30th show will be honored for the new show on July 17th. Refunds, for those that cannot make the new date, will be available at point of purchase.”

Here’s Levon from the Ryman not all that long ago….
