Both Local Alejandro Escovedo Shows Canceled
Alejandro Escovedo has canceled all shows until his August 28 appearance at Antone's in Austin, according to his MySpace tour schedule. The canceled shows include a Saturday, August 23 show at Bass Hall's McDavid Studio in Fort Worth and one the following day at Bend in Dallas.
According to Escovedo's publicist, Jeni Wetterau, Escovedo is suffering from "acute exhaustion" and is resting up so as to not further complicate the symptoms. No word on whether the exhaustion has anything to do with the Hepatitis C that nearly killed him about five years ago.
It's a shame that he'd be sidelined on the heels of his Houston appearance with Bruce Springsteen and the release of Real Animal, which is garnering well-deserved rave reviews, including one last month from us.
The DFW dates have not been rescheduled. Refunds will depend on each venue's policy, according to Wetterau. --Jesse Hughey
