Anthony Green Cracks Rib and Forces Circa Survive To Cancel Last...

Posted by - 04:58 PM on 10/22/12
Somehow, Anthony Green of Circa Survive cracked one of his ribs which forced the band to cancel their show in Detroit last night. After a few days of rest, the band plans on continuing forward and finishing the tour as planned. All of us here at AP.net send our best wishes for a speedy recovery to Anthony.
Message From The BandHello all. We just wanted to make a quick statement about having to cancel our show in Ponitac MI. We're very sorry we had to do this. We've only had to cancel a handful of shows in the past 8 years and it is always difficult. The decision was not difficult this time as Anthony was having trouble breathing and needed to get checked out. Unfortunately, he sustained a cracked rib somehow. The injury was in an area that was making it extremely difficult and painful for him to breathe. I've been around Anthony almost every day for 8 years. I've seen him perform through some serious pain and shrug off some injuries that as a friend I was begging him to go to the doctor for. He is a tough little dude and I know that canceling even this one show was very hard for him. Fortunately he is okay and after a few days rest we will be finishing out the rest of the tour as planned. We will do our best to get back to Michigan as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone for your well wishes and understanding.
Much love,
Brendan and Circa.

good luck to him, new album probably would have been good if the vocals weren't so irritating

It was a bummer to have the show cancelled, but I completely understand and I'm just glad that he's alright and it wasn't something even worse.

At least we got a Touche and Balance show though. Circa will definitely come back sometime soon.

I don't think "somehow" will appease most users on this website.

Whatever, Anthony busts his ass out there and gives it his all every night. If that isn't a good enough reasoning for them then they can fuck off.
