From dickeybetts.com

Unfortunate news today... Dickey was on his way to the airport to meet up with Travis Tritt and his band in Michigan tonight, and after it was too late, noticed that his passport had been stolen and was unable to board the airplane. Therefore, unfortunately, he will not be able to make it to the two previously announced shows. All of the upcoming shows with Great Southern are still on the schedule, however, and will not be affected.

Someone help me out here, does Dickey live outside of the US where he'd need a passport to get into the states?

I'm confused by this.

You do need some ID. Like a driver's license. I'm not buying this latest cancellation excuse.

no more lame than speculating on someone being robbed.

Here's hoping Br'er Betts gets his personal property
returned in good order, and does not become a victim of
Identity Theft.

while we are speculating... I wonder:
Why is it the Bush Administration pushed for open borders
(Mexico/USA/Canada all is one) while at the same time
insisting we have Passports to go from Detroit to Buffalo through Canada

speculate away, mates !!!

Per the article that Mitzi put the link up to, a person needs to have 2 forms of valid i.d., they won't just accept a license, they want 2 things. Hard to imagine somebody would want to take his passport, there is no way in the world they could get away with impersonating him. Just call the music police and the guy will be hauled away by the nearest road crew (and it won't be for a backstage party!).

Does anyone know what dates Dickey is doing with Travis Tritt ? I looked on both web sites but couldn't find out.

I've flown a few times recently and they just asked for one form of ID so I showed them my drivers license.

I would assume that Dickey has flown several times in recent years and knows he needs to have the correct info before he gets to the airport. If the story is accurate then somebody seriously dropped the ball not knowing that Dickey didn't have any ID before leaving for the airport.

Too bad one of the magazine stands at the airport didn't have a magazine ranking the greatest guitarists of all time, he could grab a copy of that and show them....

I picked that magazine up. I was shocked to see Dickey but no Duane in it.

I'll take Dickey's side on this, strange things happen now at airports. It's a different world now since 9.11. Looking forward to seeing the band in NYC.

Either way, if the story is true, somebody dropped the ball. Dickey, his manager, his assistant, someone should have had this all in order before the trip to the airport.

He was supposed to play Pine Knob outside of Detroit last night and one other show (I forget where) tonight.

I fly frequently and never once have I been asked for more than one form of ID. This is a lame excuse for a lame excuse.

Can't say this shocks me. He cancels shows all of the time.

I have some serious "creative scheduling" at work to go to the NYC show.

I will be furious if that show is cancelled last minute.

Well, in the spirit of making the best of a bad situation......what would be a good plan?
I suggest perhaps Dickey could do a couple of other shows with Travis Tritt.
Like the one in Gadsden on August 17.
