The Massachusetts-based Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys had to cancel a show in Oklahoma on Sunday night after a fatal bus accident.
The band released a statement via Facebook:
"After last night's San Antonio show, we were en route to the Dallas airport to drop off Al and then continue on to Tulsa (as we mentioned yesterday Al is flying home for the funeral of a lifelong friend).
"Sadly however, just north of Austin we were involved in a tragic and fatal accident when a pedestrian suddenly ran onto the highway in front of our tour bus. Police suspect a suicide.
"We were left with a driver that has been severely shaken up by the accident and a bus too damaged to continue onto Tulsa.
"Throughout the early morning hours we tried every possible way to get our band and gear to Tulsa but we've simply run out of time.
"As much as it pains us to miss a show and we truly apologize for it, we'd like to stop and acknowledge that a man has lost his life. Please keep him and any family he might have in your prayers."
The band said all tickets will be refunded.
