Justin Townes Earle enters rehab, postpones Minneapolis date
"Unfortunately, reports surfacing online about the incident in Indianapolis are not accurate," Earle said in a prepared statement. "I have been advised by counsel that I should not comment on a pending criminal matter, but suffice to say that I am looking forward to having my day in court. I would also like to say that I oppose violence against women in any form."
Earle was scheduled to perform at First Avenue on Saturday, October 9 in support of his new album, Harlem River Blues. Earle's publicist insists that he will make up his tour dates pending his recovery, and that his performances are "suspended," not canceled.
