King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard est malheureusement contraint d’annuler l’ensemble de sa tournée européenne pour raisons médicales : Stu Mackenzie, le leader du groupe, doit rentrer en urgence en Australie.

Le groupe sera bien entendu remplacé mais vous avez la possibilité de vous faire rembourser votre billet de la soirée du samedi 20 août dans votre réseau d’achat à partir de la semaine prochaine.

Nous souhaitons tout le courage nécessaire à Stu Mackenzie pour affronter la maladie de Crohn et espérons le revoir le plus vite possible sur scène.

Voici son message publié cette nuit :

« Hey everyone – Stu here. Unfortunately due to a personal health crisis we’re going to have to cancel the remaining EU and UK dates.  

For the past decade or so I’ve dealt with Crohn’s Disease the best I can. It’s a miracle we haven’t cancelled any shows in the past. But right now, my health is in really bad shape and I need to get home for some urgent treatment. 

I’ve always kept my struggles with Crohn’s private. I guess I didn’t want to be defined by it. And maybe I’m not defined by it, but I’m certainly dictated by it. It’s looming threat has shaped almost every major decision in my adult life. I think about it and plan for it and around it every day. I know a lot of people deal with chronic illnesses. I’m sorry. It fucking sucks. 

Sorry to everybody who bought tickets, to everyone who helped make the shows happen, our crew, our management and agents. We’ll reschedule the shows that can be rescheduled and there will be full refunds available for all the headline shows from your point of purchase on Monday. 

Being able to travel the world and play live music for people every night is such a privilege and I’m so grateful for the shows we were able to make happen in Ireland, Croatia and Czech Republic. Thanks for understanding and again, I’m SO sorry. Love Stu »
