Personal Issue Forces Turnpike Troubadours To Cancel Shows


The Turnpike Troubadours have cancelled some of their current tour dates as lead guitar player Ryan Engleman revealed that the decision was made over an undisclosed personal issue.

The cancelled shows are in the West Coast area scheduled between August 5th and August 13th.

The Turnpike Troubadours are still scheduled to play at the annual Braun Brothers Reunion this Friday, August 11th…but guitarist Ryan Engleman will not be with them. Other players will fill in.

In a statement, Ryan Engleman said…’From our family to yours: Unfortunately, sometimes reality rears its ugly head. All of you, the rest of the band, and I have had innumerable times together which have brought so much joy into my life that I have a difficult time even putting it into words. That being said, my family and I are going through a difficult time at the moment for reasons I will leave undisclosed. I will only say that my family needs a moment to focus on itself. I don’t plan on being away from the road for long, only long enough to support my immediate family in the best ways I know how.’

‘That being said, it is with deep regret that I have to announce that we are cancelling the remaining shows in the western U.S. The rest of the guys will be flying back out to join the Brauns at the Braun Brother Reunion, but only for that particular show (as they will have numerous musicians that can fill in). Barring any unforeseen issues, I will return to my position with the band that I love on the 18th of August.’

Earlier this week, the band announced they will release their highly-anticipated New album ‘A Long Way From Your Heart’ on August 25th.
