Clutch cancelled their second of two nights at NYC’s Irving Plaza on Saturday (10/27) after singer Neil Fallon passed out earlier in the afternoon. Neil explained the cancellation on Twitter:

Regarding tonight’s cancellation at Irving Plaza. It’s me. Again. In the early afternoon I went for a stroll. I became light headed and dizzy. Next thing I knew I was coming to on my back in a puddle of water with 2 Secaucus policemen and paramedics staring down at me.

I took a header on the sidewalk. Was taken to the ER. Thankfully, both the EKG and CAT scan came back normal. I was diagnosed with something called “Near-Syncope,” which, as far as I can tell, is the medical term for “We have no idea why you passed out, but ya did.”

Apologies to all the folks who made plans to come to the show but the doc says no. Believe me, no one is more pissed about this than I. We’ll be on tour for quite some time in 2019 and we’ll certainly try to get an Irving Plaza date in there.

One last note, the EMT, Paul, is a huge Clutch fan. It was good to meet you, Paul. You’re on the guest list for life. Thank you.

Irving Plaza posted an update that Sevendust and Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown would still be performing full sets, and “if you do not wish to attend tonight’s performance, refunds will be offered at point of purchase.”

Clutch’s tour is scheduled to continue on Sunday (10/28) at Philadelphia, PA’s Franklin Music Hall (fka Electric Factory). In December, they’re doing their annual holiday run on the East Coast with Fugazi spinoff band The Messthetics.
