Old Dominion has had to postpone three concerts in February so frontman Matthew Ramsey can undergo leg surgery to deal will an old injury.
“Postponing concert dates was not the way I planned on starting 2019,” Ramsey told fans in a statement provided 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 affected shows are Feb. 14 at Caesars Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, moved to June 13; a Feb. 15 show at US Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, that’s been moved to March 31; and a Feb. 16 show at the War Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne, Indiana, that’s been moved to May 2.

Despite the injury, the band has nine more shows to play before taking off mid-February for surgery, and is scheduled to return to the road Feb. 27 in Athens, Georgia, resuming a lengthy tour through North America with stops at Stagecoach Festival in Southern California on April 28 and a show at Red Rocks in Denver on Sept. 11.
