HARDY is canceling two of his upcoming shows on his The Mockingbird & the Crow fall tour due to suffering from anxiety and panic attacks, the country artist announced via social media on Tuesday (Oct. 3). The pair of concerts had been slated for Oct. 5 in Simpsonville, S.C., and Oct. 7 in Brandon, Miss. Additionally, his Georgia Rodeo show, slated for Oct. 6, has been postponed until April 12, 2024.
“I need to be honest with everyone for a second,” HARDY wrote in an all-text post. “I’ve been dealing with some serious anxiety since the bus accident last year, and over the last two weeks, it has taken control of my life. It has caused me to suffer many panic attacks which have landed me in the hospital. I need a moment to focus on me and to make myself better for my wife, family and you, the fans.”
“My plan is to be back and focused on Oct. 12,” he concluded. “Thank you for understanding, see you soon.”
Refunds for the Oct. 5 and Oct. 7 shows will be available at the point of purchase. HARDY’s next show, on Oct. 12, is set for First National Bank Arena in Jonesboro, Ark. His Mockingbird & the Crow tour dates run through December.
Last October, HARDY and members of his touring team were injured during a bus accident that occurred in Tennessee, where the bus ran off the highway and turned over.
“Following last night’s show, our tour bus was in an accident on our way home from Bristol,” HARDY wrote in a statement on social media at the time. “There were just four of us, including myself, on the bus, however we were all treated for significant injuries.”
