Switchfoot Lead Singer Jon Foreman Injured In Surfing Accident

GRAMMY-award winning rock band SWITCHFOOT will postpone their hometown record release show originally scheduled for TONIGHT at the CASBAH in SAHN DIEGO due to an injury within the band. Singer JON FOREMAN was treated for a wound sustained to his face during a morning surf session in ENCINITAS on MONDAY (1/13), and though he will fully recover, he will be unable to sing for a few days. The concert has been rescheduled for MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3rd, and tickets will be honored for all current ticket holders.
FORMAN said, "You travel all around the world making a movie and record built around surfing, and really push yourself to ride some really challenging waves. So it’s more than a bit ironic to get injured in your own backyard! Thankful that I’m okay – it could have been much worse."
Fans with tickets to TONIGHT’s sold-out show are still invited to "hang out" at the CASBAH at 8p for a record signing (a copy of SWITCHFOOT’s new album, Fading West, which was released YESTERDAY, was included in the ticket price) and meet and greet with the rest of the band -- TIM FOREMAN, CHAD BUTLER, DREW SHIRLEY, and JEROME FONTAMILLAS.
In fact, SWITCHFOOT has a lot to celebrate with Fading West holding the #1 spot on iTunes this week.
