Our Lady Peace Resumes Touring

Our Lady Peace is back on the road after missing a performance at the Canadian Juno Awards last Sunday as well as shows in Boulder, Colorado and Salt Lake City last week.

Bassist/keyboardist Duncan Coutts notes on the Our Lady Peace website that singer Raine Maida was hospitalized with "a reoccurring back problem that actually hadn't reared its ugly head in a couple of years."

Coutts says in an online audio report that the band didn't realize that Maida had been hospitalized until they were already at the awards venue in Vancouver last Sunday. They performed a dress rehearsal without him hoping the singer could still make the broadcast, but Maida ended up watching his bandmates from a hospital bed as they accepted their two trophies.
