By Joe Nelson
AFI ADDED TO
91X WREX THE HALLS
PERFORMING SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11, AND REPLACING KALEO, WHO ARE CANCELLING DUE TO ILLNESS.
(San Diego, CA) – San Diego’s 91X announced today the cancellation of Kaleo from the Wrex the Halls concert on Sunday, December 11 at Valley View Casino Center. Filling in their spot will be legendary punk rock band AFI.
AFI will join Blink-182, Pierce the Veil, and Jimmy Eat World performing live at the concert. Tickets are still available.
Kaleo plan to schedule a new show in April, and released a statement about the cancellation:
“Our deepest regrets and apologies that we will not be able to perform at the 91X Wrex the Halls show on Sunday. A band member has fallen ill with a severe case of pneumonia and he needs this time to rest and recover. Thank you as always for your love and support.”
“We are super bummed about Kaleo, we wish a speedy recovery and look forward to seeing them back at full strength in April,” said 91X Program Director Mike Halloran. “We are also completely blown away to have AFI come to San Diego and make Wrex the Halls 2016 more memorable than ever.”
