A Note from the Artist
Over the last several months, Jonny Lang has been under the care of medical specialists in Los Angeles addressing vocal chord challenges. Guidance has been received to postpone all February and March appearances in the interests of a return to full long-term health.

He will spend the next eight weeks in treatment, alongside additional consultation, with the primary interest of being healed by mid-April. Over the course of his two-decades-long career, Jonny has always made every effort to see through all confirmed engagements. In this instance, the only move is to protect his return to being able to perform for decades into the future without risking permanent damage.
