UPDATE: Jack Russell's Great White postpones Thursday's concert at Jannus Live




Two things: 

1. We couldn't find an up-to-date photo of Jack Russell's Great White, so, you know, you work with what you've got. Jack Russell + Great White = whatever.

2. Jack Russell's Great White -- not to be confused with the band still billing itself as Great White -- has postponed their gig on Thursday at Jannus Live until sometime this summer, according to the venue's website. Jannus officials confirmed the postponement, but no further information was available.

As recently as last Thursday, the band was tweeting about their "final rehearsal ... before the first show in ST. Pete. This band kicks ass!" But should we not have expected this? Great White has canceled shows at Jannus Live in the past.

We'll keep you posted on any updates.

***UPDATE*** Jack Russell's Great White has issued a statement about the cancellation: "Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Jannus Live date is being moved to July. As soon as we have the new date, we will post it on our website."

However, a spokesman for Jannus Live tells us that "there is no rescheduled date yet," so it seems not everything has been fully worked out.

Meanwhile, the opening band on this bill, Faster Pussycat, has booked a replacement date at the Orpheum on Thursday. Tickets are $7/$10 and will be available online and at the door.
