In a statement shared by Ottawa venue TD Place, the country outfit revealed co-founder and lead vocalist Randy Owen is "suffering from severe vertigo and migraines." They added that Owen is currently under doctor's care and is being treated.
"We hope to return to both Ottawa and Oro soon, and apologize to all of the fans for not being able to perform," the band wrote in a statement.
Alabama were set to play Ottawa's TD Place on July 19 before headlining Big Sky Music Festival in Oro-Medonte on July 20. Both dates were the only Canadian stops on the band's 50th anniversary tour.
