The Josh Turner concert scheduled for Friday, Oct. 4 at Freedom Crossing at Fort Bliss has been canceled as a result of a recent deadly crash involving the country singer’s crew bus.
The accident happened last week following Turner’s concert in Paso Robles, California. One person was killed and seven others injured after the bus went off a roadway.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Josh, his band and crew, the injured crew members, and deceased’s family during this sad time”, said Kyle McInnis, a manager for Freedom Crossing At Fort Bliss, “We respect Josh Turner’s decision to cancel the show and will work with his management team to reschedule the concert sometime in 2020.”
Turner shared via Facebook, “As I try to write this, I don’t know what to say. It’s a struggle to put into words the devastation and grief that our road family is trying to process. We lost a beloved member of our team, David Turner. He was like a brother to so many in this industry and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Please continue to keep David’s family in your prayers. All of our crew suffered significant injuries, and many have long roads to recovery. I would ask that you give them privacy during this time.”
A GoFundMe campaign has been launched in support of the families of injured crew members.
According to the Freedoms Crossing at Fort Bliss Facebook page, the concert has been canceled and will not be rescheduled.
Other Turner performances across the nation in September and October are being rescheduled for later dates.
