LEGENDARY guitarist Earl Slick, a man born to the guitar and the blues, who was due to embark on a dozen date tour of the UK at London’s Water Rats today, has made the difficult decision to cancel that tour in support of his recent album, Fist Full Of Devils, after being diagnosed with Lyme disease. He’s on medication to relieve the debilitating symptoms.
“Probably against my better judgement I flew over for rehearsals because I really wanted to make these shows happen,” Earl says; “but after our show at Rough Trade last Thursday I realised I need more time to recover before I get back on stage.
“I’m gonna take some time off to let the doctors do their thing and we will do our best to reschedule all the shows for next year. Please bear with us whilst we try and reschedule the shows.
“We will be sending out all the information about the new dates and where you can get a refund in the coming days.”
Earl says he would like to apologize for any inconvenience, thanks you for your understanding and hopes to see you all in the spring.
