Amanda Blank @ Coachella

Today we learned that Naeem Juwan Hanks (aka MC Spank Rock) experienced a serious sudden health problem that will cause him to have to cancel his Studio B performance this Friday.

A STATEMENT FROM SPANK ROCK'S MANAGEMENT:
Naeem Juwan Hanks (aka MC Spank Rock) experienced a serious sudden ailment that resulted in his inability to perform at Coachella this past weekend and will cause him to have to cancel his Studio B rooftop performance in NYC this week. While in Indio, at the Coachella Music festival, he had to endure two emergency room visits (one hour before his set time) that eventually resulted in an actual operation on Monday and he now remains in Palm Springs to recover from this unexpected surgery. Our love and well wishes go his way and our thanks to involved industry peers and fans for their understanding and support.

We wish him the best and hope he feels better soon.

While this unfortunate circumstance is beyond our control, we'd like to offer refunds to those Spank Rock fans who wish to no longer attend due to their cancellation.

Customers who purchased tickets online via Ticketweb will receive an email with refund instructions. Those seeking a refund who purchased tickets at either Other Music or Sound Fix should follow up with Studio B directly using this email: generalinquiries@clubstudiob.com with SPANK ROCK REFUND in the subject.

We hope to see you this Friday with Brazilian Girls, The Rub, Chester French ,Roxy Cottontail, 88-Keys, and more with the debut of Studio B's new rooftop, starting at 9 PM !

Thank you, Studio B

So to answer the question asked by "Anonymous | April 8, 2008 5:30 PM": NO. But in all seriousness I hope he is doing okay.

UPDATE - SPANK ROCK CANCELLATION

Thanks again to all that came out on Feb. 1. We are still working on getting a date rescheduled with Spank Rock, who canceled that night due to illness. Its been tricky to get something lined up, as he’s just starting to feel back to his good old self again, and has been busy in the studio working on a new album.

REFUNDS: A few of you were disappointed he didn’t perform that night (trust us, we were too). And a few people requested refunds for the show, and as much as we wish we could offer them to you, Spank Rock was not the only performer on the line up this night, and and we had to not only compensate the other 8 artists that played that night, but also the people that put their time and energy into helping us organize the party. So, what we are going to offer, once we get a date rescheduled with Spank Rock, is a discounted ticket price to everyone on our mailing list....."
