Machine Head vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn has been suffering from illness lately and was forced to stop the band’s show in Clermont, France tonight, February 15th, mid-set as a result. The band have issued the following statement and video apology:
“Clermont Ferrand, as you know, the chest flu and hacking cough that Robb had, stopped any sound from coming out of his throat a 5 songs into our set. We are very sorry that we were unable to finish tonight’s performance. Robb wanted to personally apologize in the video below.
The doctor that visited Robb after the show instructed him not to sing for 4 days or his voice would not return for the tour. Unfortunately, what that means is Wednesdays show in Luxembourg is on a “wait and see” basis.
We will keep you posted as soon as we know more information.”
The band are presently out on their ‘An Evening With Machine Head‘ European tour.
