Injury forces Renaissance to postpone Clearwater show
Renaissance lead vocalist Annie Haslam has been diagnosed with a serious spine injury and must postpone nine tour dates -- including a show at the Capitol Theatre in Clearwater on Oct. 6.
Haslam, the lead singer of renowned progressive rock pioneers Renaissance, has been diagnosed with a serious vertebral compression fracture and is required to wear a back brace for two to three months. Her doctors have nixed any traveling for two to three weeks. As a result, Renaissance will be forced to postpone the first nine dates of the first leg of their upcoming 2012-2013 concert tour.
No makeup date was announced but tickets already purchased will be honored on the new date, tour managers said in a news release.
