Y&T’s John Nymann will not be performing with the band at the Ramblin’ Man Fair (July 28) and Rock & Blues Custom Show (July 29) festivals in the UK. The guitarist was forced to stay home after becoming “very ill.”
Dave Meniketti commented:
We’re sad to announce that John Nymann became very ill and was unable to make the flight to the UK today. Though we’ll miss him at this weekend’s festivals, we all wish John the best on his full recovery and know he will be fine. He’s so disappointed, and this is the first time he’ll miss a show in his long career due to illness. John looks forward to returning to the UK with Y&T on the fall tour.
While this is a shocker to us all, Y&T will power through and play Ramblin’ Man Fair and Rock & Blues Custom Show as a trio, with a local UK friend joining in on a few songs to help round out the sound. We know that our awesome UK fans will be supportive, and we want you all to know that we’re completely ready to kick some ass on these two festivals!
