SKID ROW RELEASE A STATEMENT REGARDING SINGER TONY HARNELL LEAVING THE BAND, DECLARES “WE FOUND OUT ABOUT HIS DECISION THE SAME WAY ALL OF YOU DID, VIA HIS POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA”
As previously reported, singer Tony Harnell posted a tweet stating that he is no longer the singer in Skid Row. In response to Harell’s tweet, Skid Row have posted the following statement on their Facebook page:
“To the Skid Row faithful,
As you may know, Tony Harnell quit the band yesterday. We found out about his decision the same way all of you did, via his post on social media. He had posted that he was no longer in the band before informing the band personally.
The last we spoke with Tony was on Dec 17th. He was in the hospital being treated for “bronchitis with asthmatic symptoms.” We were all very concerned and offered any assistance we could to help him get healthy. Due to his condition we were forced to cancel our show in Chicago on Dec. 19th. The next time we heard anything was his post yesterday.
That being said, we are all moving forward and wish Tony the best in his future endeavors.
Lastly, amidst all of the rumors and speculation, there has been no talk of a reunion nor are we opening for Guns N Roses.
That’s it for now. We’ll keep you updated as best we can.
Thanks for your support and understanding. See you in 2016!”
