It is with much regret that GLOBAL MUSIC announce the necessary re-scheduling of the up-coming HYDROGYN UK Tour, due to run this April 2009.
Earlier today the Kentucky rockers informed us of the incident and subsequently posted their tough decision on their website and MySpace sites that they had no choice but to cancel the dates after lead axeman, Jeff Westlake fractured his wrist and will be out of action for the next month or so.
The message read as follows:
It is with much frustration that the band has announced today the rescheduling of the European tour for the fall of this year. Guitarist Jeff Westlake has suffered an injury to his left wrist in an accident and will not be able to play for a 3 to 4 week period.
“It was just a freak thing that happened and I ended up with my wrist fractured so I will just deal with it and be ready to move on hopefully by mid to late May” Westlake said. “I would also like to take this time to apologise to all of our fans who were planning on attending the shows and the promoters as well for all the hard work; we will reschedule the dates for fall and I will be looking doubly forward to doing those dates so hold on to your tickets and we will be announcing the new dates soon.”
Hydrogyn is also scheduled for The Flight of the Valkyries fest on June 27th this year and many other dates as well for the summer and Europe which was in the planning already for the fall of 09.
The band will also be entering the studio with Michael Wagener to begin the follow up to Deadly Passions on May 21st. Westlake is hopeful that all will be ok by then but if not former band mate and guitarist Jeff Boggs will be on stand by just in case.
GLOBAL MUSIC would also like to apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment. HYDROGYN will be re-scheduling their dates for Autumn 2009 and tickets will remain valid. We will endeavour to keep you all posted on further updates. Dates to be re-scheduled are as follows:
April 21 London, UK The Gaff
April 22 Leicester, UK Leicester Square
April 23 Crewe, UK The Limelight
April 24 Bradford, UK The Gasworks
April 25 Newcastle, UK Legends
