Ennio Morricone has suffered a back injury that has forced the postponement of his US concerts, originally dated March 20 and 23, to June 13 at Barclays Center in New York and June 15 at Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Maestro Morricone has undergone an operation to repair a slipped disc, and his doctor has advised him not to travel long distances in the immediate future to ensure a full recovery.
"It saddens me deeply to have to postpone these concerts," Morricone said in a release sent Wednesday. "I’m grateful and sorry to my fans for having to delay these shows. I’ll miss you, and I look forward to seeing you soon.”
Tickets to the original performance will be honored at the rescheduled performance. A full refund is available to those who cannot attend the rescheduled performance via the original point of purchase through May 1st.
