Upcoming Neon Trees concert at Purdue postponed due to illness

September 12, 2014  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Neon Trees have announced that the group must postpone some dates of their upcoming fall tour – including a scheduled Nov. 7 show at Purdue University - due to health issues of bassist Branden Campbell, who recently underwent open-heart surgery for a valve replacement.

The intense touring schedule has been exhausting, and doctors have advised Campbell to slow down, according to the group.

"We had initially thought we should cancel the entire tour, but Branden wouldn't let us, thus the new abridged dates can be found on our website (http://www.fameisdead.com/),” according to a statement released by the Neon Trees. “We are very sorry that we are postponing some of our upcoming dates. Obviously, our bass player’s health must come first, and we thank all of our fans for understanding. We will make it up to you in the near future - we promise.”
