King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard keskeyttää Euroopan-kiertueensa

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard on joutunut keskeyttämään Euroopan-kiertueensa laulaja Stu Mackenzien terveysongelmien vuoksi, peruen täten myös esiintymisensä Flow Festivalilla. Flow etsii parhaillaan yhtyeelle korvaavaa esiintyjää.

Australialaisbändi tiedotti aikaisin tänä aamuna käynnissä olevan Euroopan-kiertueensa keskeyttämisestä ja loppukiertueen peruuntumisesta laulaja Stu Mackenzien terveysongelmien vuoksi. Mackenzie palaa välittömästi kotimaahansa saamaan kiireistä hoitoa pahentuneen Crohnin tautinsa vuoksi. Yhtye julkaisi seuraavan lausunnon:

“Hey everyone - Stu here. Unfortunately due to a personal health crisis we’re going to have to cancel the
remaining EU and UK dates.

For the past decade or so I’ve dealt with Crohn’s Disease the best I can. It’s a miracle we haven’t cancelled any shows in the past. But right now, my health is in really bad shape and I need to get home for some urgent treatment.

I’ve always kept my struggles with Crohn’s private. I guess I didn’t want to be defined by it. And maybe I’m
not defined by it, but I’m certainly dictated by it. It’s looming threat has shaped almost every major
decision in my adult life. I think about it and plan for it and around it every day. I know a lot of people deal
with chronic illnesses. I’m sorry. It fucking sucks.

Sorry to everybody who bought tickets, to everyone who helped make the shows happen, our crew, our
management, and agents. We’ll reschedule the shows that can be rescheduled and there will be full
refunds available for all the headline shows from your point of purchase on Monday.
Being able to travel the world and play live music for people every night is such a privilege and I’m so
grateful for the shows we were able to make happen in Ireland, Croatia and Czech Republic. Thanks for
understanding and again, I’m SO sorry. Love Stu.”

Flow Festival etsii parhaillaan yhtyeelle korvaavaa esiintyjää sunnuntaille ja tiedottaa lisää aiheesta mahdollisimman pian.
