Whitesnake Cancel European Shows Due To Illness

Whitesnake have been forced to cancel several European shows. The dates were scrapped due to illness.

David Coverdale issued the following statement:

“Dear Whitesnake fans around the world:

We have been rocking our way across the globe on the first part of our Farewell Tour giving all we’ve got to you, the fans.

The rigors of the road are the same for all of us and we have been trying to keep everyone healthy and safe.

Unfortunately we have been hit recently with a couple of situations that we have been dealing with, the best we can..

First our beloved band leader Reb Beach went down temporarily and he missed a couple of shows while he mended (and is much better now, by the way).

Then the rock of our band, the Legendary Tommy Aldridge went down and we unfortunately were not able to play the Rock Imperium Festival in Cartagena this past Saturday (very regrettable and all apologies to our Spanish fans and friends).

Tommy was bad enough at the time to have missed the first show ever in his career – The GOOD news is that he is feeling better and is anxious to get back out there to perform for all of you.

Unfortunately I have now been hit hard as well. I started feeling a bit under the weather two days ago, and was just diagnosed with an infection of the sinus & trachea. The doctor recommends 5 days of no singing and bed rest.

Sadly, that means that we are not going to be able to do the upcoming shows in Milan, Vienna and a decision on Zagreb is about to be made.

I’m very sorry to all the fans who had planned to come see our Farewell Tour in each of those cities – it’s my intention to get better as soon as possible and be able to pick up with the remaining shows of the European Farewell Tour. You are all in our hearts!!


He later added:

“Update to all our Whitesnake fans:

As stated earlier, I am still under doctor’s orders of bed rest, and to not sing for 5 days as i recover from this sinus infection. That time frame includes the show in Zagreb this Saturday, July 2nd so we are unfortunately going to have to cancel the Zagreb show as well.

This is obviously very sad for us, especially our band members that were getting to perform before hometown crowds; Michele Luppi, our Italian Stallion was looking forward to playing in Milan in front of his friends and family, and of course Dino Jelusic, the Pride of Croatia was going to be able to give his all, to his hometown of Zagreb.

We regret that this is necessary in our attempt to get healthy and be able to finish the rest of our tour.

Love and Light,

After a long discussion, we have made what we feel is the right decision, and it is with heavy hearts that we’re forced to cancel the rest of the tour. We’re quarantining in France until we get healthy and head back home. We’re hoping to make a return to Europe very soon, and thank all of you for your support.”

Sacred Reich Cancel European Festival Appearances

Sacred Reich have cancelled several European festival dates due to guitarist Wiley Arnett requiring surgery for a recent injury. The band commented:

“We are sorry that we will not be playing Copenhell, Graspop or Hellfest this year. Wiley has an injury that requires surgery. He will make a full recovery but not in time for these shows. Sorry to disappoint our fans looking forward to seeing us at these great festivals but we hope to see you at one of the shows in the future. Thank you for your understanding. Sacred Reich”

Thrice To Miss Several Shows Due To Positive COVID-19 Test

A member of Thrice’s camp has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result, the band will be missing several shows on their tour with Bayside and Anxious.

The group commented:

“Unfortunately there has been a positive Covid case in the Thrice camp.

Following CDC guidelines and out of the abundance of safety and caution we will not be playing the next three shows. Our plan is to see everyone in Ft Wayne, IN on June 14th.

Stay safe and healthy everyone!”

They later added:

“We wanted to follow up and say how sorry we are that we can’t play the next few shows. We know that many of you were really looking forward to going, some of you traveling from out of state or country even. We are devastated along with you.

Hopefully we will be back your way soon. The shows are still going on so please head out to catch Bayside and Anxious and all of the other great bands at the Vagrant 25th Anniversary show. Cheers.”

Loathe Cancel European Shows Due To “Family Emergency”

Loathe have cancelled their upcoming European shows due to a “family emergency.” Despite this, their UK dates will continue as planned.

Loathe commented:

“People of Europe,

Due to family emergency we regretfully withdraw from our upcoming European festival and club appearances. All upcoming UK appearances will go ahead as planned.

However, rest assured knowing that we will be returning to Europe in the coming months with more news to follow.

Thank you for your patience, support and understanding.”

Asking Alexandria Drop Off Remaining Dates Of Their Tour With Nothing More, Atreyu, & Eva Under Fire

Asking Alexandria have dropped off the remaining dates of their tour with Nothing More, Atreyu and Eva Under Fire. The band were unable to continue with the trek due to Danny Worsnop requiring vocal rest following a throat infection.

The band issued the following statement:

“To all of our AAFamily, as you’re aware by now, we have had to miss the last few shows of our tour because Danny has suffered from a severe throat infection. Today, we all woke up early in anticipation of receiving news from a voice specialist in Nashville.

Unfortunately, the news we received was not the news we were hoping for, and we have been told that Danny cannot sing for the next few weeks and needs to remain on vocal rest. Obviously, this means we will not be able to continue on with our North American tour and it breaks our hearts to have to say that.

Whilst Danny recovers, we will be working diligently to book a new tour so that we can get back out there and see you all again. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us at one of these shows and thank you to everyone else for your understanding. We love you guys, and we will be back as soon as possible.

Nothing More, Atreyu, and Eva Under Fire will be continuing the tour without us, however If you would like a refund please do so from your point of purchase. Once again, we are sorry, we love you.”

The Used Cancel Slam Dunk Festival Performances As Bert McCracken Focuses On His Mental Health

The Used have cancelled their upcoming Slam Dunk Festival performances so Bert McCracken can take some time to focus on his mental health. He said the following about that:

“I have always been open about my struggle with mental health and have recently found myself facing new and overwhelming challenges. For this reason, I won’t be able to play the upcoming shows at Slam Dunk. I am so sorry but needed to make this decision to focus on professional treatment and self-care. Performing live for The Used fans is once of my greatest joys, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. We have the best fans in the world, thank you for your undying support. With love, Robbie and The Used“

Asking Alexandria Cancel Several Live Dates Due To Danny Worsnop Suffering From Laryngitis

Asking Alexandria frontman Danny Worsnop has been diagnosed with laryngitis. As a result, the band have been forced to cancel several live dates.

The band commented:

“To our AAFamily/fans in CT and PA. As with yesterdays news in NJ we are incredibly upset to have to say this, but due to a severe sinus and ear infection that has spread to Danny’s throat and turned into laryngitis, we will not be able to play the next few shows.

Danny went straight to the ER to try and remedy the situation but he has been instructed to go on strict vocal rest so that we can continue on with the rest of the tour.

This has not been an easy decision to have to make but if we push through the next 2 shows it may end up forcing us to cancel the remainder of the tour.

If you would like to get a refund please head over to Ticketmaster or the venue box office.

Once again, we are so sorry to have to do this. We love you guys so much and will be back as soon as we can be”

The 5 dates are Evansville, Tulsa, Deadwood, Moorhead, and Missoula. Halestorm and Black Stone Cherry will still be performing as scheduled. Thank you to everybody who has come out to see a show, and an extra special thank you to Halestorm. We’ll be back out there as soon as we can.”
