Country singers Gloriana were forced to cancel their concert in Texas over the weekend (19-21Apr13) after bandmates Mike Gossin and Rachel Reinert were struck down with food poisoning. The Wild at Heart hitmakers were due to perform at Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth on Friday (19Apr13), but the musicians fell violently ill just before the show and had to be treated by paramedics on their tour bus. A post on the group's Twitter.com account read, "Tonight's show at Billy Bob's Texas has been canceled due to illness. Please say a prayer for Mike and Rach- both being treated on the bus by EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians) for extreme food poisoning. We are very sorry and hope to reschedule soon." Gossin's brother and bandmate, Tom, also uploaded a photo of the pair attached to an intravenous drip, but the stars were already bouncing back by the next day. On Saturday morning (20Apr13), Reinert tweeted, "Thank you everyone for the love and concern! Mike and I are feeling much better today and finally getting back on our feet. Love you all!"
