Wayne Hancock Cancels Dates, Enters Rehab

The king of Juke Joint Swing Wayne “The Train” Hancock has just canceled a slew of concert dates in July and August, and is entering rehab according to his record label Bloodshot Records.

With the support of his family, friends, club owners and label, Wayne Hancock has canceled his July and August tour dates to enter a comprehensive residential rehabilitation program.

Confirmed through his manager, Hancock is currently in a short-term rehab program and following his next two Texas shows next week, and a performance at the Rockabilly Rave in the U.K. on June 16th, he will then enter an extended-term recovery facility to address his long-term fight with addiction.

We would like to extend our appreciation for your understanding, especially to those who had tickets to the cancelled shows. Wayne will do his best to return to your area in the near future.
