Machine Head har måttet trække sig fra deres igangværende Tour, da forsanger Robb Flynn skal hasteopereres.

I en officiel statement fra bandet lyder det:

Machine Head må forlade deres nuværende nordamerikanske turné med Dethklok, All That Remains og Black Dahlia Murder på grund af forhold, helt uden for deres egen kontrol. Frontman Robb Flynn skal hasteopereres. Flynn havde planlagt, at skulle under kniven i januar efter endt tour. Han har spillet gennem smerten forårsaget af dobbelt lyskebrok siden tourstart i oktober. Han havde håbet, at kunne fortsætte til trods for ekstrem ubehag, men det er blevet for svært at fortsætte. Flynn vil blive opereret i morgen, onsdag 14 november, i Minneapolis før han vender hjem til Californien for at komme sig, hvile og komme til hægterne. Machine Head beklager overfor sine fans og de andre bands, at skulle forlade Touren tidligt”.

Robb Flynn selv her også kommet med en udmelding, den holder vi på original sproget, da ord som “nuts” bare er for Metal til at oversætte:

“I’ve been toughing out an inguinal hernia below my waistline since June of last year, and a few months ago got a second hernia in my nuts. What basically happens is my guts drop into my nuts, and it looks like I have a third testicle (man, I can hear the jokes already!) It hasn’t been that painful, and I’ve gone to the doctor a few times to take care of it, but he said after surgery I probably couldn’t sing for a few weeks, and since that wasn’t going to happen, I scheduled it for January when I had a break. Unfortunately, after the last few shows, my guts have been very swollen and hard to push back in. Yesterday, the pain was excruciating and I went to the emergency room last night. They said that I need surgery. I will be doing my damnedest to rejoin the tour in a couple weeks. Thanks to all the fans, bands, and crew for understanding. I’m determined to see you all soon and finish what has been a great freakin tour!”

AV, og god bedring!
