Sad news to report… Hot Tuna has canceled the last three scheduled dates for their Steady As She Goes tour.
A representative for the band sent us this note today:
“Jack Casady‘s wife, longtime love Diana, is in the late stages of a rare form of cancer. She has fought an amazing fight for over ten years. It is with a heavy heart that Hot Tuna announces that they are canceling the last three dates in this six week Steady As She Goes tour. Please keep Diana and Jack in your thoughts and prayers and please send Diana love and light. In Latin the name Diana means ‘luminous.’ Indeed she is and will always be.”
The canceled dates include:
- August 2, 2012: Tower Theatre in Bend, OR
- August 3, 2012: Aladdin Theater in Portland, OR
- August 4, 2012: Mount Baker Rhythm & Blues Festival Deming Log Show Fairgrounds in Bellingham, WA
Our thoughts go out to Diana, Jack, and their family, friends and bandmates.
