“Ok friends… I’m afraid I have to be the bearer of bad news.
As most of you know I recently underwent surgery to remove polyps from my vocal chords. Although the surgery was a success, I now realise that I may have returned to singing just a little too soon and I seem to have made things quite difficult for myself.
I was really looking forward to getting back on the road and back on to the stage again with the lads! We gave it a real good try on our first run of shows in Holland and for a couple of nights I felt in reasonable shape but, on the 3rd day it was clear that I was having some problems. We soldiered on for the next couple of nights but I’m afraid it was getting worse.
So, it is with the deepest sadness and regret that I have to tell you that the remainder of our European tour has been cancelled. I’m so sorry to have to do this to our fantastic fans and friends in Germany, France and Denmark but I would sincerely hope that you can understand that my health and career is at risk and I feel it is wise to take some more time to recover and get the expert treatment and help that I need to ensure that myself and King King return as strong as we can possibly be!
We pride ourselves on delivering a great live show for you and I as a proud Scotsman simply wouldn’t want to give you any less than my absolute best!
I genuinely am extremely upset at having to make this decision but myself and our team are thinking of the long term repercussions and I just hope that you understand that this was not an easy decision to make.
We hope we can still count on your support and we look forward to performing for you again in mainland Europe in early 2017.
As for our U.K. friends… guys, as far as we are concerned the U.K. tour WILL go ahead as planned!
I will be working tirelessly to get in to shape and make this a great tour. So unless total disaster strikes and the doctors tie me to a bed…. then we’ll see you in November!
On behalf of myself and everyone at King King, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness, support and patience. I hope you’ll be the light at the end of this very dark tunnel!
