After recovering from an extreme mental anxiety attack that hospitalized the band’s lead singer Justin Furstenfeld last fall, Blue October has rescheduled a run of previously cancelled tour dates. The tour which was named the “Pick Up the Phone Tour 2009” was intended to help suicide-prevention services and raise awareness of mental health issues. Furstenfeld, who was hospitalized October 27th, released a prepared statement at the time saying “on the eve of this tour in support of a cause that means the world to me, I am in need of time to heal from a setback in my own personal life, which is severe enough for me to seek hospitalization. I hope that my action to seek the strength and safety of treatment will inspire others that are suffering to do the same.” Pick Up The Phone Tour Rescheduled Dates: Apr 7, 2010 Center Stage Theatre-Atlanta, GA Apr 8, 2010 Hat Factory-Richmond, VA Apr 9, 2010 Theater of the Living Arts-Philadelphia, PA Apr 10, 2010 Webster Hall-New York, NY Apr 11, 2010 9:30 CLUB-Washington Apr 16, 2010 Water Street Music Hall-Rochester, NY Apr 17, 2010 Lifestyle Communities Pavilion-Columbus, OH Apr 18, 2010 House of Blues-Cleveland, OH Apr 20, 2010 House of Blues Chicago, IL Apr 21, 2010 The Pageant-Saint Louis, MO Apr 23, 2010 Sokol Auditorium-Omaha, NE Apr 24, 2010 Gothic Theater-Englewood, CO Apr 27, 2010 Lonestar Events Center-Lubbock, TX Apr 28, 2010 Dos Amigos-Odessa, TX Apr 29, 2010 Cain’s Ballroom-Tulsa, OK Apr 30, 2010 House of Blues Dallas-Dallas, TX
