MUSIC NEWS- DEVO has announced that they have had to postpone all of their upcoming live concerts dates for 2010 due to a serious hand injury suffered by guitarist Bob Mothersbaugh. A glass shard sliced Mothersbaugh’s right thumb to the bone, severing a tendon. He underwent immediate emergency surgery and is expected to make a full recovery after proper care and therapy.
Most of DEVO’s upcoming November 2010 tour dates, including Solana Beach’s Belly Up, Los Angeles’ Club Nokia, and San Francisco’s Warfield Theater, will be rescheduled for next spring and the news will be announced once new dates have been confirmed.
Note that DEVO founding members Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale will still attend Moogfest on October 29, in Asheville, NC. As previously announced, DEVO have been awarded the first-ever Moog Innovation Award by Moog Music. The Moog Innovation Award celebrates pioneering artists whose genre-defying work exemplifies the bold, innovative spirit of Bob Moog. Previous recipients of the titled Moog Award (prior name) include Keith Emerson, Herb Deutsch, Gershon Kingsley, Jan Hammer, and Bernie Worrell.
