Gavin DeGraw pulls out of more dates as he recovers from beating
Gavin DeGraw has pulled out of most of his August tour dates with Maroon 5 and Train to recover from an attack that landed him in the hospital last week.
DeGraw, who is touring in advance of a new album, "Sweeter," due in late September, had been out drinking with friends at a bar that he co-owns with his brother when he was attacked early Monday (8/8) as he walked several blocks from the establishment.
As he fled his attackers, he was hit by a cab, but sustained most of his injuries from the original attack.
DeGraw had been home for a quick break during his summer amphitheatre run with Maroon 5 and Train, and his initial hospitalization forced him to cancel appearances on the tour from August 9th through 13th in Saratoga Springs and Wantagh, New York and Mansfield, Mass.
On the advice of his doctors, DeGraw has now pulled out of a new batch of dates beginning with Sunday's (8/14) show in Bethlehem, Penn. He'll also miss the tour stops in Hershey, Nashville, Indianapolis, Des Moines, Chicago, Clarkston and Toronto.
At this point DeGraw is expect to re-join the tour August 24th in Columbia, Maryland for the last of his three dates on the tour.
Train will continue on the road through December with additional guest artists. DeGraw is expected to unveil a headline tour of his own surrounding the release of the new album.
