Saving Abel Cancel Class of 2009 Tour Dates Due to Frontman’s Illness

Saving AbelThe Corinth, Miss. rock band Saving Abel are cutting their Class of 2009 Tour short due to lead singer Jared Weeks’ diabetes-related health problems.

According to a statement released by their publicist, “a nasty mix of diabetic shock and the flu parked the singer in the hospital for a number of days. The tour resumed last Monday, but after one week of performances, the prudent decision to give Weeks the opportunity to have an insulin pump inserted into his body immediately has been made.”

Due to the previous hospital stay, Saving Abel was forced to cancel three recent appearances in Michigan. The announced Class of 2009 shows from Orono, Maine, on Nov. 30 through Atlanta on Dec. 8 are canceled. The band will still perform in Nashville on Dec. 18 and Memphis on New Year’s Eve.

The platinum-selling rock band is the first act in more than three years to have three top five rock hits off their debut release. Saving Abel’s debut singles — ‘Addicted,’ ’18 Days” and ‘Drowning (Face Down)’ — have delivered a massive fan base for the quintet. Saving Abel’s biggest hit, ‘Addicted,’ was a number one rock hit, crossed over to peak at 7 on Billboard’s Top 40 Airplay Chart and also sold more than 1 million downloads.
