It’s not flawless like The Gaslight Anthem, but Brian Fallon never set out to be perfect on his solo work. In fact, stuff from his output under the Fallon name is introspective, melodic and sweetly poetic. So much so that it landed him a spot on Dana Point, California’s Ohana festival lineup alongside My Morning Jacket, Pearl Jam and Kings of Leon. Expect to hear lots from a forthcoming album, Local Honey, which is due on March 27.

You'll have to enjoy the album, too, because Fallon announced the postponement of this show in the wake of coronavirus concerns.

"I’ve been very excited to share these new songs live and to come and play for you all, but I have to put the safety of my audience, touring party, and everyone else involved in this tour first. All dates for my US tour are now being postponed, please stay tuned for more info and rescheduled dates," Fallon wrote on Twitter.

"If you have any questions about your tickets please refer to point of purchase for further details. This is not an easy decision by any means, but I feel that it is something that must be done during this crisis. Please stay safe out there."
