just been given the following message from some friends following the current tour...

this is not a drill.

the news comes from band, and the official site will be updated shortly to reflect this...

----------------------
Sorry about this.

We are having to reschedule the next three gigs in Budapest, Zagreb and Zurich, following throat infections, influenza and gastro-enteritis.

Under doctor's orders, we can't do anything for a week.

Normal service should resume from Leeds (April 8th) onwards.
----------------------

effected dates are:

2009 April 03 Budapest Hungary A38 Ship
2009 April 04 Zagreb Croatia Tvornica Kulture
2009 April 06 Zurich Switzerland X-Tra

i repeat, this is not a drill.

sounds like they are having a 'mare.

get well soon guys :eek:

if its any consolation, they do have a sick note from a 'real' doctor, and they are all gutted about having to postpone the 3 gigs :(

seems to be a reoccurring problem since the first outbreak in scandinavia :(

i think a few days off should allow them some time to recover properly and then complete the rest of the tour...

I was amazed when they kept on going ofter the first bout of gastro - been that route myself, I was weak as a kitten after and literally lost 10 lbs over the course of 12 hours. And I was supposed to be performing the following day as well - can't even imagine having tried to go through with it. :eek:

A week of doing nothing is a critical - exhaustion is not conducive to recovery. Very much hoping they'll all be healthy again soon...Image

And feeling very bad for those who won't be able to rearrange their plans. :cry: Von hates having to postpone; if there was any way he could avoid it, he would.

Get well soon. The idea of :von: perched on the throne with a bucket in front of him is not a pleasant one. :?

I really understand the selfish part, I am feeling the same way. On the other hand, with their music meaning so much, I believe we should allow some selfishness around, it is not so bad.
