Black Label Society Postpone Shows After Zakk Wylde Loses His Voice


Bad news for Black Label Society fans — the band were forced to postpone last night’s show in Raleigh, North Carolina, and tonight’s show in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as frontman Zakk Wylde has apparently lost his voice. These shows are part of their current trek with Nita Strauss and Jared James Nichols.

Black Label Society released the following statement regarding the Raleigh gig:

“It’s with great regret that Zakk Wylde has lost his voice and is unable to perform tonight’s show in Raleigh, NC. We are rescheduling this show for Tuesday August 30. Hold onto your tickets, Black Label Society will do this show for you on Tuesday August 30 at the Ritz in Raleigh, NC”

Meanwhile, The Signal in Chattanooga posted the following message last night:

“It’s with great regret that Zakk Wylde has lost his voice and is unable to perform our show in Chattanooga tomorrow, May 11.

Good news! The show has already been rescheduled to August 31. Hold onto your tickets, we’ll see you in August.”

Obviously, this is a massive bummer, but what can you do? Can’t have the band go up and not have Zakk sing. Then again, maybe Nichols could’ve subbed in?

Anyway, long story short, we wish Zakk a speedy recovery. Catch the band at one of their upcoming shows below:
