Hall Ready To Rock
The singer has been resting and taking antibiotics since his diagnosis in June, and will stay on antibiotics for up to two months, according to publicist Jonathan Wolfson. The duo was set to perform six rescheduled shows beginning August 6th at the Zoo Amphitheatre in Toledo, Ohio.
Shows scheduled for late August through September with Todd Rundgren will go on as planned.
The pop pair canceled touring plans in support of their new album, Our Kind of Soul, after the 55-year-old Hall was diagnosed.
“Daryl’s going to take a little time to get his energy back,” Wolfson said. “He gives 1,000 percent onstage.”
Lyme disease, caused by the bite of infected deer ticks, can cause arthritis, neurological problems and encephalitis, a potentially deadly brain inflammation. Early signs include a red “bulls-eye” rash that slowly spreads and flu-like symptoms.
“This illness made it impossible for me to give my best effort to our audience, but now that it’s been identified, I’m looking forward to a complete, quick recovery,” Hall said in a statement on the group’s Web site.
