Alan Parsons underwent “urgent spinal surgery” on Friday June 24 and postponed a series of tour dates as a result, his daughter reported.
The rocker had prepared to support the launch of his new album From the New Worldwho arrives on July 15, but suffered a health problem that forced him to change his plans.
Saying she was writing “on behalf of our entire family”, Tabitha Parsons explained via social media: “We would like to express our deepest gratitude to everyone for the outpouring of love, support, well wishes, thoughts and prayers expressed for Alan and our family as he faced this urgent spinal surgery. The surgery was a success and Alan is now resting comfortably at home. There will be a long time to recovery, but it will return to its normal, pain-free state soon enough.
She added, “We have concert dates scheduled for the fall which will continue as planned and we hope that the rescheduled dates will be confirmed and scheduled shortly. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for your continued support. »
