Received an email from Nektar today announcing cancellation of their upcoming 2021 Vinyl Sides Live Tour due to drummer Ron Howden requiring a medical procedure.
Here is the content of the email for your information.

To all our Nektarines:

Our drummer Ron Howden recently got the news that he must have a medical procedure. While he is a fit guy and in good spirits, the reality is that he will need time to recuperate following the procedure. Thus we have decided to postpone the “Vinyl Sides Live” tour until March-April of next year.

Our steadfast agent, Steve Ozark, is in the process of rescheduling the dates. If you’ve purchased tickets for one or more of the shows, they will be honored for the new dates. As the spring shows are confirmed, we’ll be sure to share the great news with you all.

We know you’ll join us in sending Ron your very best wishes. Love is a powerful thing!

As Ron recovers, we’ll be making the best use of this “down time” to focus on writing and recording tunes for our next album. There’s lots of news in the Nektar universe, so keep following us for updates.
