The news was broken via McConnell's promoter on Facebook. "Hi guys, really late notice but we have so terrible news... Drew McConnell has just been rushed into hospital, He is having to have emergency spinal surgery. so I'm afraid that we have had to postpone HORROR SHOW. Im really sorry to let you down. We were all really excited about tonight but now we will just have to make the next one which is on June 23rd BIGGER and BETTER!""
The reason behind McConnell's current ailment hasn't been revealed, though he severely injured his spine last year when a car ran a red light and knocked off his bike. His spine was broken in three places and had to undergo months of physical therapy to regain the ability to walk.
We wish McConnell a quick recovery.
