As a result of her struggle with shingles, Alison Wonderland was too sick to perform her closing set at Okeechobee. In her place Subtronics joined the line-up, taking over the closing set at the Florida festival. Alison took to Twitter to apologise to fans for her absence caused by a case of Shingles to her face and eye.
Shingles is a painful, blistering skin rash from a reactivation of the chickenpox virus. It can also be particularly risky around the eye. Ouch! The Australian DJ and Producer posted a heartfelt and regretful apology, and fans responded with a wave of concerned and well-wishes.
Subtronics played to a packed out crowd and incorporated Alison Wonderland’s songs in her absence. A glimpse of the closing set created an emotional response from Alison and fans, and it’s not hard to see why.
I’m not crying you are shut up https://t.co/YEk1BV2jOb— ALISON WONDERLAND (@awonderland) March 9, 2020
Earlier in the day, she had shared a Twitter post warning fans of low energy levels and apologizing for being unavailable for photo opportunities. Sadly the situation took a turn for the worst when medical professionals recommended against performing. Alison Wonderland is a known advocate for mental health and was one of the first artists to join in the efforts towards creating awareness to the Australian Bushfire Crisis earlier this year.
We’re wishing the ‘Church’ star the speediest of recoveries! Alison Wonderland’s next show is scheduled for the 20th of March at BUKU Music + Art Project in New Orleans, LA.
