Pela's Healing Touch - the Huge 2008 Tour Resumes!

DATELINE : Rock N' Roll Recovery Room

BACK ON THE STREETS
PELA'S 2008 TOUR IS BACK UNDERWAY!

ON THE MEND - AND READY TO GO

JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS AFTER SINGER BILLY McCARTHY SLICES OPEN HIS HAND AND SLASHES TENDONS, CAUSING SHOWS TO GET CANCELED - PELA IS BACK ON THE ROAD! One of the Best Bands in America is ready, again, to Rock!

DETAILS OF THE INJURY WHICH SIDELINED PELA'S 2008 TOUR -
On Friday, Feb. 29th - Pela frontman Billy McCarthy (above at left) was injured at the end of their show at Schuba's in Chicago. Following a medical evaluation of his injuries - McCarthy is said to be a slashed hand and a cut tendon in his hand. At that time it looked like the tour was a lost cause and McCarthy might need more serious surgery. My how things have changed!

NOTE FROM THE BAND: "You can't keep a good thing down. Billy has his stitches out, and new tour dates are rolling in. Almost every show has been rescheduled on 'There's No Off Switch Thing On This Tour', and we will be adding more shows throughout the next few weeks. As far as we know, tickets purchased for canceled dates can be transferred over to the new shows. Be sure to check with the clubs for more information regarding ticket exchange or refund. We hope that everyone that bought tickets will be able to make it to the new dates."

MY TAKE: Friends - Pela is one of the most enjoyable bands tour in the United States. Get in on this and find out why this injury was such a travesty. Billy McCarthy will tear his guts out on stage for you. This is fine, fine listening. - Ryan
