has been co-headlining the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival
tour with GODSMACK
since the middle of August, with dates booked through the end of September, but one of the other acts they had on the trek with them is missing. PAPA ROACH
had to drop off after just a few shows so that singer Jacoby Shaddix
could have surgery on his vocal cords. SHINEDOWN
bassist Eric Bass
told The Pulse Of Radio
that the group's departure wasn't a total surprise. "You know, they had talked about him having to get some surgery and get some things taken care of, but I think it was absolutely for the best because, you know, we definitely didn't want him to harm himself — you know, the guy's got a long career ahead of him, man, and we didn't want to see that cut short either," he said. "So everybody out here was 100,000 percent supportive of him and of the decision, and we weren't gonna bring anybody out here to replace those guys 'cause you can't replace them."
