Guitarist Mike Einziger “became ill on the band’s recent European tour and the band had to cancel 3 shows. After returning to the US, doctors have recommended that he take some additional time off to recover so the band will not be able to perform as scheduled,” says the band’s Facebook page.

About an hour after that call, Rome Ramirez called in to Kevin & Bean to break the news that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sublime With Rome[/lastfm] would be filling in for Incubus. We wish Mike a speedy recovery and are stoked to have Sublime With Rome on board for the 22nd Annual Almost Acoustic Christmas.

“We are very sorry that we will not be able to perform at this year’s KROQ Acoustic Xmas show. Acoustic Xmas has always been one of our favorite shows to play. Our #1 priority is our fans and it pains us to disappoint them, but we look forward to starting the new year healthy and rested and playing for all our Incubus fans again very soon. Thank you for your understanding.”
