03/05/2023 -  Sjock 47 - Tami Nelson cancels for Saturday

Sad news from @tamineilsonmusic

"As many of my fans will know, I am still in recovery from sepsis after multiple emergency surgeries earlier this year. I am trying to keep my commitments to as many shows as I can while still being careful. It is why there are not as many shows as I would normally play in 2023 and why I unfortunately cannot get to every town or city I would like to. It’s also part of why I chose to base myself in North America and predominantly travel in a motorhome with my family for 5 months- to reduce long flights where I can, for the benefit of both my physical and my mental health while touring. Unfortunately there are a couple shows I have had to cancel that my Dr has advised against due to extensive travel. I’m afraid one of those shows is the Sjock festival in Belgium in July. I’m very sorry to let my fans in Europe down and hope to be back to play for you next year when hopefully my health is fully restored. Thank you for your understanding."
