David Cook cancels upcoming shows for unknown reasons

March 29, 2009

Last night at the William & Mary College show in Williamsburg, VA, David Cook announced he was canceling his next two shows.

(Two or three show, I guess. Not sure. I don’t think anyone has an exact number at the moment.)

Although he does hope to reschedule, Monday night’s show at Colby Sawyer College and Tuesday’s show in New Haven, CT at Southern Connecticut State University will not be happening.

A lot of Cook fans are freaking out, worried something happened to his older brother, etc. Who knows. Maybe him and his band are just tired. It also kind of sucks to be forced to drive from Virginia and then back to New England when you have to be in Wilmington, North Carolina on Thursday.

Or maybe he just needs some time off after having to deal with some batshit crazy fan drama earlier this week.

Whatever the reason, let’s hope everything is okay for him and his band. Personally, I’m thinking they just need a few days off and logistically speaking, it might make the most sense to do it now. Or maybe he has to do some extra promotional stuff for his new single. Who knows.

The Declaration Tour schedule can be found on Cook’s MySpace page.

And you can watch this video of some OMG SUPER EXCITED TEENAGERS BEFORE THEY SEE DAVID COOK LIVE AND IN CONCERT. (It made me let out a quasi-giggle, ok?)

UPDATE: David Cook Official has released this statement:

We are canceling Monday and Tuesday’s shows to allow David time to deal with personal family matters. Please respect his privacy at this time. David would like everyone to rest assured that we are working with the Universities to reschedule the shows that are missed.

Thanks to Ted K and MJ for bringing this to my attention. Let’s hope everything is okay with Cook and his family. Poor guy. I hope people respect his privacy regarding this private matter.

    *burns a virtual candle to Baldy in the hope he’s busy interviewing new security to get the fatties away from him*

    From Linda: …wonder too if he had young, hot women chasing him and looking for his hotel room if he would have acted the same way and put out that blog. Maybe he is getting tired of the overweight fan tards chasing him. If I were his age, I would be too.

    Well, what age would you be then, Linda? Seems like you might be one of the overweight fan tards that you so poetically write about.

    GET A LIFE! So friggin judgemental…mental!

    I think it’s a combination of things. He seemed fine during the Saturday show in AC. Really happy, and then right after that blog, his spirts changed. His sales also dropped to 9,000 which is really not very good. Add to that, his family issues, I’m suprised the guy hasn’t had a breakdown yet. He is handling things pretty well. I wonder too if he had young, hot women chasing him and looking for his hotel room if he would have acted the same way and put out that blog. Maybe he is getting tired of the overweight fan tards chasing him. If I were his age, I would be too.

    Also check out David Cook uncensored Free Speech message board. The fans love David but are allowed to give their opinions freely without being banned or attacked. It’s pretty cool.

      I was trying to register there the other day and it wouldn’t let me! It kept telling me I was over 99 years old. I mean, I know they might be trying to protect against the frauen and everything, but… 🙂

      I would actually love to visit that board. Email me and let me know!

    I hope everyone will respect his privacy and allow him to deal with this incredibly difficult situation in peace.

    mj’s has a post and a link back to his official site that says the shows were canceled to deal with personal family matters. no details, but it’s gotta be the brother. cook was sporting a new cancer ribbon tattoo and apparently broke-down during a performance of permanent the other night and couldn’t finish the song. i actually feel bad for the dude now. hope the ‘tards let him deal with his own shit in peace for a couple of days.

      Agreed. I haven’t checked MJ’s since earlier today, but I didn’t want to post anything totally speculative since he did not make an official announcement. Thanks for letting me know!

      Hopefully, nothing to do with his family or brother’s health. But no one knows anything and are only speculating.
