Dance band won't be in the North Okanagan Thursday because of injury

Due to an injury, Thursday’s LMFAO performance at Vernon’s Rockhouse has been postponed.

The duo made the announcement Tuesday that their remaining dates of their current Cherrytree Pop Alternative Canadian Tour have been postponed due to a severe back injury sustained by lead singer Sky Blu.

Sky attempted to perform the remaining shows from a mobility chair but only completed one before a physician declared him unfit to perform and explained the severity of the injury. Sky’s doctor has diagnosed him with three herniated discs and prescribed a full month of rehabilitation with no travel or performances.

“First off I would like to apologize to our fans,” said Sky Blu. “I am disappointed that I’m unable to come see everyone and perform. Unfortunately I need to take this time to get healthy and get my wiggle back.”

The remaining Canadian tour dates in Calgary (Dec. 20), Edmonton (Dec. 21), Vernon (Dec. 22) and Vancouver (Dec. 23) have been postponed until February of next year, exact dates to be announced. Fans that purchased tickets should check with local outlets for further details.

The duo will reunite for the newly announced Cherrytree Pop Alternative European tour starting February 2012.
