Neon Trees Drummer Elaine Bradley Keeps Touring at Six Months Pregnant
Neon Trees drummer Elaine Bradley, in the middle of a lengthy concert tour, has just revealed she is six months pregnant — and she plans to stay on the road for another month.
Bradley and her bandmates revealed the news to The Mix 104.1 in Boston. “Oh my goodness, wow,” Bradley said once the subject was raised. “You know that this is the first time we’re talking about it. You’re breaking the news on the air.”
“It’s not a private — well it is private — but it’s not like, it used to be a secret,” she added. “It used to be one of those things where it was very hush-hush and now it’s not anymore so it’s weird to get used to it.”
Neon Trees are touring through early June to promote their second album, ‘Picture Show,’ and its successful single ‘Everybody Talks.’ The final concert is scheduled for June 8 in the group’s home state of Utah. Bradley promised she will finish the tour if her health allows. “It’s not too bad yet, but I am going to drum basically up to a little past seven months,” she said. “It’s going to get intense, I’m sure.”
The group has a couple of state fair shows scheduled for August, right around the time Bradley is due. No word yet whether the shows will be canceled or if the group will bring in a replacement drummer for the one-off dates.
