Missouri rockers Shaman’s Harvest opened for iconic rock band AC/DC last month in Kansas City, despite band members suffering some injuries. Afterall, “the show must go on!”
Singer Nathan “Drake” Hunt performed in a wheelchair for most of the show in Kansas City after going through intensive surgery on his ankle for an injury while back when he was “…working for the man,” lyrics from the band’s current hit single “Dragonfly”. Being on the road his ankle has suffered more damage due to their rigorous performance schedules. Drake will be out of his full leg cast at the end of the month and into a boot cast, allowing him to stand for upcoming shows.
But Drake isn’t the only wounded soldier out on the tour battle field. Lead guitarist Ryan Tomlinson also performed that same set sitting on stool after shattering his femur in February at the Music Millennium Conference in Harrisburg, PA.
Shaman’s Harvest will continue to “Shine”, title of their latest album, with the band’s single “Dragonfly” flooding the commercial rock radio airwaves and performances, injured or not, at major festivals including EDGEFEST VI in Little Rock on May 8; ROCK FEST in Kansas City on May 15; Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH on May 23; Rocklahoma in Pryor, Okla. on May 29; Point Fest in St. Louis on June 6 and Summer Fest in Milwaukee, Wis. on June 28.
Shaman’s Harvest will also open up for major rock band Puddle Of Mudd in a few selected cities including Hooligans in Jacksonville, N.C. on May 11, the Watertown Fairgrounds on May 19 in Watertown, NY; the Town Ballroom in Buffalo, N.Y. on May 21; the Capitol Theater in Davenport, Iowa on May 28; The Masquerade in Atlanta on June 3; and the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TV on June 4.
