C’est avec un grand regret que nous devons vous annoncer l’annulation du concert de Grandaddy. Le groupe américain était attendu au festival le jeudi 13 juillet sur la Place Georges-Python.

Suite au décès de Kevin Garcia, membre fondateur et bassiste du groupe, Grandaddy a pris la décision d’annuler toutes ses dates à venir, comme l’indique ce communiqué envoyé par le groupe :

« There are no accurate words to express what we need to.
We are absolutely shattered to say that we lost our friend and band mate Kevin Garcia on May 2nd. He succumbed to the effects of a massive stroke.
We were all able to say goodbye to him and he was surrounded by his closest friends and family here in Modesto.

Kevin started playing with Grandaddy when he was fifteen. He was an actual angel. He navigated life with a grace, a generosity and a kindness that was utterly unique. And contagious. He is loved so deeply by so many.
Kevin was a proud father of two children, Jayden and Gavin. He is survived by his grandmother Joan, his parents Randy and Barbara (who let us practice at their house until 2001...and who are the best), his brothers Craig and Jeff and his wife Sondra.

There is a gofundme here to help with his family's coming expenses: https://www.gofundme.com/friends-of-kevin-garcia

Given the circumstances, we unfortunately have to cancel our upcoming tour dates.

With great sadness and love,

Grandaddy »

Nous travaillons pour leur trouver un remplaçant. Les billets ne sont ni repris, ni échangés. Les concerts de Timber Timbre et Braziliers sont bien sûr maintenus.
