Bruce Corbitt to Perform with Warbeast This Weekend
WOW. Looks like Bruce Corbitt really is on the mend. Not that long ago, doctors proclaimed his esophageal cancer a death sentence, and the singer performed what was supposed to be his farewell show with with Warbeast. Now the new, still-in-clinical-trials treatment Corbitt has been undergoing has been successful enough that he’ll be able to perform with Warbeast this weekend:
“Greetings everyone! For those that haven’t already heard, Warbeast was asked to reunite to play a 3-song set at this year’s Ft. Worth Weekly Awards. Warbeast was chosen as part of their 2018 Hall of Fame Class. So I’ve decided to give it a shot for such a special occasion. Jono Garrett will be playing drums for us because Joey is out on tour.
“The awards ceremony will be next Sunday evening, July 8th at the legendary Ridglea Theater. It is open to the public for $5. I think it’s something like 6:00 to 10:00 and our award and performance might be early.
“Anyway, I’m really excited and thankful to the Ft. Worth Weekly for showing us this much appreciation. I’m proud that I’m even feeling good enough right now to be able to attempt it. But I do know my limitations and I will be careful.
“All I know is I get to experience that feeling of being on stage again… and that’s why I keep on fighting. Because good things do finally happen if you can just hang in there long enough. You know damn well!”
Hopefully this is just the beginning of Corbitt’s comeback. More news as we get it.
