King’s X Cancel Shows Due To Jerry Gaskill Suffering Heart Issues

King’s X have been forced to cancel their remaining 2019 dates. This news comes after drummer Jerry Gaskill “was informed that he had some issues with his heart that needed to be addressed.”

The band issued the following statement:

“A letter to the Fans,

On October 14th, during a recent check-up with his Cardiologist, Jerry Gaskill was informed that he had some issues with his heart that needed to be addressed and as a result, he will need to have some procedures to help rectify these issues. Jerry is feeling positive and is looking toward the future, He wanted to make sure that his feelings were truly expressed, on how awful he feels about having this happen. He and the band were looking forward to playing these upcoming shows, especially knowing that they were selling out. Jerry is determined as always to do whatever he can to get back out and see all of the fans, and as his focus is turned inward we all ask that you keep FAITH HOPE AND LOVE during this process.

“ It is with great sadness and sorrow that we must cancel and reschedule these upcoming shows. I thought of every possible way that I could actually get out there and do this. I was very much looking forward to it. But I realized in the end that it just would not be wise. Yet, I am determined once again to come back and be better than ever. Thanks for all the love and understanding.” – Jerry Gaskill

On behalf of King’s X, It is with humbled sadness, that we must announce, that ALL upcoming “King’s X” shows for 2019 will be canceled, to allow for Jerry to fully recover after his operation. The band and Jerry ask that you respect his privacy at this time and please allow for him to recover with peace of mind that he will be back upon the rock’n roll throne once again.

Ozzy Osbourne Postpones 2020 European Tour

Ozzy Osbourne has postponed his 2020 European tour. Despite this, his rescheduled North American tour is expected to continue as planned. This news comes after the singer previously postponed all of his 2019 dates due to injury. While dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia, the he fell in his Los Angeles home and aggravated previous injuries he sustained in his 2003 ATV accident.

Osbourne said the following:

“I’m here to give you an update on my condition. As you probably know, or you may not know, at the beginning of this year, I had a bad fall. I screwed all the vertebrae in my neck and had to have surgery. I’ve got a lot more nuts and bolts in my neck now than in my car.

I’m not dying, I am recovering — it’s just taking a little bit longer than everyone thought it would. I’m bored stiff of being stuck on a fucking bed all day. I can’t wait to get off my ass and get going again. But you’re just gonna have to be a little bit more patient.

I’m postponing the European tour because I’m not ready. I’m not retiring — I’ve still got gigs to do — but when I do come back on an American tour, I wanna be one hundred percent ready to come out and knock your fucking socks off. And also, there’s a new album on the way.

Thank you to my band and my crew and Live Nation, and most of all Judas Priest.

I just wanna say one thing to the fans: I sincerely thank you for your patience and your loyalty. I love you. Now, will you fuck off and let me get better.”

Cradle Of Filth Cancel Upcoming Shows To Focus On New Album

Cradle Of Filth have cancelled four shows in Europe and Tel Aviv so they can focus on their new album. Despite this, the group still plan to play their October 19 “Cruelty And The Beast“ show at The Palladium in London, UK and their November 2 show at RGMC XXL 19 in Bruges, Belgium.

The band commented:

“Felicitations Filthlings,

Unfortunately Cradle Of Filth are cancelling their three upcoming shows in Europe (prior to the special London Palladium show), plus the show In Tel Aviv, Israel, due to time restraints concerning writing and pre-production for entering the studio for recording the forthcoming new album.

Having played literally all over the world this year, it is unfortunate that keeping the band this busy has forged an ever-decreasing window in which to fit everything in and so it is with some regret that we have to announce the cancellation of these shows.

That being said, Tel Aviv will be moved to a slot next year to coincide with COF’s first tour of China.

The headline show at the Entrepot in Bruges, Belgium on November 2nd remains unaffected.

Once again sincere apologies for this sudden turn of events, the next thing on our very metal agenda (and the last of a busy year) is the grandiose London Palladium performance on 19th October.

The nightmare before All Hallow’s Eve!

And brethren. please watch the heavens for a much pleasanter Cradle announcement later this week…”

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes Officially Cancel Their North American Tour

Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes have officially cancelled their full North American tour. This news comes after Carter was recently involved in a serious car accident.

The group commented:

“Due to injuries Frank sustained in last week’s car accident, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes will no longer be performing at any dates on the North American tour scheduled to take place in September and October.

Unfortunately Frank has been advised by doctors not to travel – let alone perform – for a number of weeks. This has made it impossible for us to honour the dates booked and we regrettably have to cancel. We are all absolutely devastated by the current situation but as stated before, Frank and Pete are both incredibly lucky to have survived the crash without even more serious injuries. We are so sorry to our fans across the country who had bought tickets, and The Beaches and Evan Konrad who were joining us for the tour.

We are working on our plans to return and hope to be back in the spring of 2020. Details of this will be shared as soon possible but for refunds and further details on the cancelled dates please visit venue websites.

Thank you always, for the support. We do not take it for granted and will see you soon.
