Fans hoping to see Old Dominion in February will have to wait a little bit longer as the band’s frontman Matthew Ramsey recovers from a surgical procedure.

In a statement from Ramsey, the singer expresses his sorrow to have to postpone the shows in order to take care of an old injury.

“Postponing concert dates was not the way I planned on starting 2019,” he said in a statement to Billboard. “Unfortunately the truth is that I’ve been playing with an injury for some time now (You may have noticed less pictures being posted of me flying through the air recently!). Unfortunately, the only way I can get back to the old me is to fix some things surgically. I want to be able to put on the best show I possibly can for you all and, in order to do that, I’ve got to take care of myself. I thank you all in advance for understanding, and I look forward to making a full recovery so that we all rock together. See you soon!”

The three shows in question include their stops in Windsor, Ontario on Feb. 14, moved to June 13; Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Feb. 15, moved to March 31; and Fort Wayne, Indiana on Feb. 16, moved to May 2. More information about the rescheduling can be found on the band’s website.

Ahead of the surgery, Old Dominion has nine more shows before taking time off in February. They are scheduled to return to the road on February 27 in Athens, Georgia for the remainder of their Make It Sweet Tour.
