Here is what Dave Wrote on Facebook regarding the problems with his back;
It’s been a short 5 weeks since I injured my back, yet it feels like a lifetime. This morning, I had my follow up appointment with my doctor after Cortisone injections 19 days ago. Unfortunately it hasn’t improved at the pace we both hoped for so I will go in for another round of injections Thursday in hopes of knocking this out so I can go on with my life. Of course, in conjunction with rest and a proper therapy routine.
Being that Y&T had 2 shows this weekend scheduled, plus a festival in Minnesota only weeks away, my doctor advised me against playing any shows for at least 4 weeks to give my back the necessary time to recover from this injury. So today we have re-scheduled the Berkeley & Merced Theater shows for later in the year.
Berkeley is now set for Sunday, Dec 30th, and Merced Theater is now scheduled for Friday, Nov 2.
Sorry for the inconvenience to anyone that was looking forward to these upcoming Y&T shows. Believe me I’d much rather be playing than going through this rehabilitation. But, I’ll hang tough and do all the right things to get me back on stage and ready for the upcoming European tour starting Sept 19.
