Before the unfortunate incident, the band was meant to perform at two separate places in Canada. The performances are in celebration of Alabama’s 50th Anniversary, and the tour dates were July 19th and 20th respectively.

Concerning the locations, if the performances had held, the first would have taken place at the TD Stadium located in Ottawa and the second, at Ore-Medonte Ontario, the venue for the Big Sky Music Festival.

Although courtesy required that the band should still manage to perform, Randy’s health status makes it almost impossible. Vertigo is a condition whereby an individual has problems finding balance and is often feeling dizzy.

Medical research has revealed that it is mostly as a result of complications in the inner ear. It also comes with a long list of other symptoms.

This, combined with migraines, would give the singer a very uncomfortable experience if he were to go ahead with the performance. We wish him a quick recovery.
