Sevendust Cancels Tour Dates For Quality Time

Rock and roll package tours are great fun, but if you're a dad, nothing beats spending time with your wife and newborn baby girl. Just ask Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose.

Sevendust has cancelled nine of its October tour dates (including shows scheduled for October 7 in Tucson and October 8 in Las Vegas) so that Rose will be able to spend some time with his wife, Coal Chamber bassist Rayna Foss Rose, and their daughter, Kayla Morray Rose, who was born last week (see "Coal Chamber Bassist Welcomes Baby Girl").

Saturday's show in Modesto, California has been rescheduled for this Wednesday, and the group hopes to reschedule most of the missed dates before the end of the year.

The band will still be accompanied by Machine Head, Orange 9mm, and DDT on its remaining dates, and those three bands will be performing without Sevendust from October 15 through 24.

Here's how the altered schedule looks now:
