Wynonna Reschedules Postponed Gigs

Wynonna Judd has confirmed she’ll return to the stage this week for her first headline show since her husband/drummer’s motorcycle crash. The country singer has also released another statement about the accident and rescheduled a few of the gigs that were postponed.

The accident occurred Aug. 18 in the Black Hills of South Dakota when Michael “Cactus” Moser crossed the center line of U.S. Highway 16 and hit a car. Wynonna was riding a separate motorcycle ahead of her husband, who plays drums in her band The Big Noise. She was not involved in the accident.

Following the crash, Moser’s leg was amputated above his knee and he also had surgery on his hand.

Wynonna was scheduled to perform at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Hotel & Casino the evening of the crash. That show was called off along with a number of Canadian gigs scheduled last week.

Wynonna and The Big Noise resume the tour Aug. 30 in Peshawbestown, Mich., at the Leelanau Sands Casino.

The rescheduled Canadian dates are Nov. 27 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, at the McPhillips Street Station Casino and Nov. 28 in Regina, Saskatchewan, at the Casino Regina Show Lounge.

An announcement on Wynonna’s Facebook page notes that refunds are available for the show originally scheduled Aug. 24 in Carlyle, Saskatchewan.

Here is Wynonna’s latest statement about Moser:

“We continue to feel loved and supported by the outpouring of messages from people around the world. Cactus continues to improve every day as he begins his road to rehabilitation. We are looking forward to the day when we will be back together on stage again and I believe we will be stronger than ever. Until then I will be out on the road with the rest of the band while I wait lovingly and patiently for my husband to return to The Big Noise.

“We have received hundreds of inquiries from people wanting to show support to Cactus in some way. In lieu of flowers, gifts and cards, Cactus is asking for family, friends and fans to make a donation in his name to Homes For Our Troops, a non-profit, non-partisan organization committed to helping military personnel who have returned home with serious disabilities. Please visit www.homesforourtroops.org/cactusmoser to learn more.  Cactus will be notified of every dollar donated in his name and you can even include a message to him along with your donation.”
