Of Mice & Men have been forced to cancel the two remaining dates of their “Full Circle” tour following singer Austin Carlile’s hospitalization on Saturday. While the reason he was in the hospital is still not clear, Carlile has spoken about his struggles with Marfan’s Syndrome in the past. Marfan’s Syndrome is a hereditary condition affecting connective tissue. People afflicted are often tall and slender with dispraportionate limbs, an abnormally curved spine, and heart murmurs. Austin had major heart surgery in 2010 that caused him to temporarily split from OM&M before rejoining in January 2011. In a post on Facebook, the band had this to say:
“Of Mice & Men regrets to announce that the remaining dates of the ‘Full Circle Tour’ will be cancelled. Therefore, tonight’s [Sunday’s] show at Soma in San Diego and Tuesday’s show at El Plaza Condesa in Mexico City will no longer go ahead. Lead singer Austin Carlile was admitted to a hospital yesterday morning and per doctor’s orders has been kept in overnight for evaluation. The band regrets not being able to perform for their fans and hopes to be back in both cities as soon as possible. Refunds for both shows will be available at point of purchase, however Of Mice & Men are planning to reschedule both shows for a later date in the year. We will have more news on this in the the coming weeks and tickets holders are welcome to retain their tickets, as they will remain valid for these rescheduled dates.”
We wish Austin a quick and speedy recovery!
