FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RatDog must regretfully announce the postponement of the Bob Weir and RatDog tour scheduled to begin tomorrow, October 7th, in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
Since January, Bob Weir has worked continuously on music dates for RatDog and The Dead, promotional work for his career retrospective album, and a number of nonprofit appearances.
It was all simply too much, and hes reached a point of complete physical exhaustion. He anticipates returning to performing in early spring 2005.
No one regrets more than he the postponement of these shows, but he and his management concluded that his long-term health was a greater priority. That and his desire to give his fans only the best possible performance outweighed the difficulties of rescheduling the tour.
-Dennis McNally, for RatDog
