Twin Shadow postpone UK tour dates following tour bus crash

Incident in Aurora has left frontman George Lewis Jr requiring hand surgery

Twin Shadow have postponed tour dates, including gigs in the UK, after their tour bus crashed last week.

As reported, the US band’s bus was involved in a road-traffic accident on Interstate 70 near Aurora, Colorado on Friday.

A statement from the band courtesy of their record label Warners today (April 20) clarifies that the bus hit a tractor-trailer and that circumstances are being investigated. Frontman George Lewis Jr has been left requiring surgery on his hand.

“There were 12 people on the tour bus consisting of band and crew,” the statement reads. “Everyone was taken to two local hospitals. At this time both driver John Crawford and Twin Shadow drummer Andy Bauer remain hospitalized, in serious condition. George Lewis Jr. AKA Twin Shadow will be undergoing reconstructive hand surgery this week.”

“The band and crew send a heartfelt thanks to everyone in Colorado and beyond who have helped through this difficult time.”

While everyone involved in the accident recovers, Twin Shadow are postponing tour dates scheduled for April 21- May 22. This includes a date at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on May 19 and another the following day in Manchester.

Twin Shadow’s third album ‘Eclipse’ is due for release in the UK on May 18.
