The Doobie Brothers 50th Anniversary Tour To Continue Without Tom Johnston

The Doobie Brothers‘ 50th Anniversary Tour will continue without Tom Johnston since the band’s lead singer and guitarist is set to undergo surgery due to severe back pain.

As per the advise of his physician, Johnston should not be performing at this time and is looking forward to returning to the road as soon as possible, reads a statement the Doobie Brothers posted on their Facebook page.

The 35-date 50th Anniversary U.S. tour is set to kick off in Hollywood, Florida, on May 25.

Had Johnston been able to join the tour, it would have been the first time in 25 years that the rock band’s original members – Johnston, Michael McDonald, Pat Simmons, and John McFee – performed together.

“I hope for a speedy recovery and can’t wait to get back on the road and continue doing what I love,” Johnston said in a personal note. “I would like to thank Pat, Michael, John, and the entire Doobie Brothers band for covering for me while I recover from back surgery.I’m sure they will bring it every night as they always do.”
