Survivor cancel September and October dates to mourn the death of Jimi Jamison
In the wake of lead singer Jimi Jamison's sudden death on August 31, SURVIVOR has cancelled the September and October dates of its fall 2014 tour.
"We are devastated by this loss, we trust that our fans will understand our wanting to take some time to mourn and remember our brother," said Dave Bickler, who, along with Frankie Sullivan, is an original member of the celebrated band formed in 1978. Tour organizers are working with host venues to reschedule the cancelled dates.
"I called him 'Golden Throat,' and for good reason," said Sullivan. "Jim Jamison had a voice we will never forget. It was massive and huge and yet sweet and gentle. He was a loving soul and a brother to me in many ways. I will miss him greatly."
