Shawn Lane's Father Hospitalized ~ Fan Appreciation Concert Postponed
April 26, 2016
"It is with great sadness that we relay that Shawn Lane's dad has suffered a massive stroke. Shawn's dad was airlifted via Life Flight helicopter last Wednesday, April 20, and is still in ICU on a ventilator / life support.
Shawn has been by his dad's side for the past six days, and we praise and support Shawn in his unwavering loyalty to his father and his family. We would appreciate asking for the continued kind prayers of our good friends and faithful fans for Shawn, his dad, and the Lane family.
We stand united as a Blue Highway family in strong support of our band brother Shawn. As a result of that support and the seriousness of this medical situation, we have made the decision to postpone our band's upcoming Fan Appreciation Concert.
The Blue Highway Fan Appreciation Concert scheduled for April 30 at Emory & Henry College is being postponed to a new date which we hope to announce by the first of next week (the week of May 2).
Fans who have already purchased tickets will receive a complimentary upgrade to Reserved Seating if they choose to keep their tickets intact for the new show date. Ticket holders should receive an email today with an update and instructions.
We hope that our friends and fans will stand with us, as you have loyally stood for 22 years, as we do all within our power to give full support to our brother Shawn and his dad.
We express appreciation in behalf of the Lane family for the kind outpouring of well wishes which have flooded in via social media since last week.
Our gratitude is with each of you for your understanding and your much appreciated support of Shawn Lane and Blue Highway!
We look forward to an exciting Fan Appreciation Event later this year, and invite everyone to stay tuned to www.BlueHighwayBand.com and www.Facebook.com/BlueHighway for updates as they will be coming shortly!"
