D.R.I:n keikka Jalometallissa peruuntuu

Jalometalli 2013Amerikkalainen metallipioneeriyhtye D.R.I. on valitettavasti joutunut perumaan elokuisen Jalometalli-festivaalin keikkansa. Peruuntuminen koskee koko bändin heinä- ja elokuulle kaavailtua Euroopan-kiertuetta. Peruuntuminen johtuu bändin perustaneen kitaristi Spike Cassidyn käsivammasta.

D.R.I.:n oli määrä Jalometallin lauantaina, mutta etsimme parhaillaan yhtyeelle mahdollista paikkaajaa. Jalometalli-festivaali järjestetään 9.-10. elokuuta 2013 Oulussa Club Teatrialla ja klubin ulkoympäristössä.

Ohessa kitaristi Spike Cassidyn virallinen lausunto

”I am sorry to say I will not be able to go on tour in Europe this July and August 2013. My left middle finger has been injured and will not bend anymore. I believe it’s from an injury months ago when I grabbed a door knob wrong and received what felt like an electric shock to my palm. It was sore and had sudden sharp pain for weeks before it healed. Then a few weeks after that my middle finger began to be stiff and painful in the morning. It would take a few hours to loosen up before it would feel normal.

Over the next month those few hours became half the day, then a month ago, all day long. Recently it became so stiff it would no longer bend, so I went to see a doctor a week ago, who gave me a cortisone shot in the base of the finger. It helped a little but did not cure the problem as expected within a few days. I still can not bend it more then just a little and can’t play guitar. The doctor told me that it is not a normal injury, it could be a repetitive stress problem from playing guitar, and I need to take 8-12 weeks off from playing guitar. He is sending me to a hand specialist who treats musicians, but I have not been able to see him yet.

I feel really bad about this especially since I’ve had to cancel other tours and shows last year because of my cancer and surgeries. I feel like its hurting the bands image. And I feel like I am unable to do my job like i should as part of this band.

So I am sorry to say we will have to cancel the tour.

Spike”
