Lillian Axe Cancel Texas Shows After Scary Road Accident
New Orleans hard rockers Lillian Axe were forced to cancel their shows today (Aug. 8) and tomorrow (Aug. 9) at Trees in Dallas and at the Scout Bar in Houston, respectively. The band was involved in a scary road accident while traveling to their Dallas gig.
Members Steve Blaze and Eric Morris had to be evaluated, with crew member Richard Plaisance also being looked at by medical staff, as well. No other injuries took place, according to a Facebook post.
The band issued a few updates via social media. Their manager posted: “Steve, Eric and Richard DID NOT sustain any major injuries. However they will not be able to perform. They are being treated and should be released shortly from the hospital.”
The two shows are canceled and will be rescheduled, due to equipment damage. The accident took place while the band was traveling overnight to Dallas. Thankfully, there were no fatalities.
The Louisiana band last released an album in 2012 in the form of ‘XI: The Days Before Tomorrow.” It came out in Europe.
We hope everyone in the band and the crew is okay and that the band is able to salvage or replace equipment with as much ease as possible.
