Black Stone Cherry has canceled shows in Nebraska and Minnesota this week following the death of frontman Chris Robertson‘s father.

“We turned the bus around after learning of a death in the family very late last night,” a statement from the band reads. “As you all know, it’s family first. We ask that you understand and respect this decision.”

“Please pray and send as many positive vibes to the Robertson family during this time,” the group adds. “We hope and plan to make it up to you all as soon as we can.”

Robertson confirmed the news himself with his own Instagram post, featuring several photos of him and his father.

“There goes my hero,” he wrote in the caption. “I’m sure gonna miss you, Daddy.”
