His headlining dates on Oct. 5 in Simpsonville, SC and Oct. 7 in Brandon, MS have been cancelled with refunds available at point of purchase. Meanwhile, his Oct. 6 show at The Georgia Radio is being moved to April 12, 2024.
Taking to social media to explain the decision to cancel these two shows, HARDY wrote: "I've been dealing with some serious anxiety since the bus accident last year and over the last two weeks, it has taken control of my life. It's caused me to suffer many panic attacks which have landed me in the hospital. I need a moment to focus on me and to make myself better for my wife, family and you, the fans".
He later shared that his plan is to return on October 12 for his show at First National Bank Arena in Jonesboro, AR.
The news comes at the one year anniversary of HARDY's involvement in a serious bus accident on the way from Bristol, VA to Nashville, TN on Oct. 2, 2022.
While on the road, HARDY and three others were in the bus when it was overturned on a portion of I-40 West. The Mississippi native was released from the hospital after being treated for "significant injuries".
HARDY's statement follows a number of other high-profile tour cancellations and postponements as a result of mental health challenges this year, including Lewis Capaldi, Sierra Ferrell, Orville Peck, Arlo Parks and more.
