Americana legend John Prine won’t be making the trip to Australia this April as he recuperates from a hip injury.
The 73-year-old year old musician has been told to put his feet up and take a break from touring. “Being on the road has aggravated a hip injury and he has had to return to the U.S. for surgery,” reads a statement posted by his family.
From the Prine Family: We truly regret to inform you that John will be taking a break from touring, as being on the road has aggravated a hip injury. For those who have purchased tickets to any of the affected shows, the venue will have more specific information. John will be looking forward to being back on the road at Merle Fest on April 26th.
