[theprp.com] Oceansize have postponed their touring plans as a result of their drummer Mark Heron suffering from a recurring infection which the band assume to either be “Staph A or Celulitis”. They had the following statement to say on the matter:
“Ladies and Gents,
It’s with dismal regret and snotted beak we must announce the postponement of our entire tour. It’s been touch and go for a few days with our drummer, Mark, who’s back in the hospital being treated for something jolly nasty.
Mark is very ill and has been admitted to hospital indefinitely, we thought it best to postpone the dates until the New Year as it’s unlikely he will be well enough in time and as I’m sure you all understand it’s vital he makes a full recovery. We will have a full re-scheduled tour early next week.
All tickets will from the original dates will be valid. Refunds will be available from the point of purchase. We hope you can all make these new shows – the European dates were awesome and we’ve got some tasty new tunes for you to get your gums ’round.
We apologize to anyone who’s lost money on pre-booked hotels/trains etc. We’ll endeavor to make it up to you on the new dates.
Tonight, instead of tearing Nottingham a new arse, I’m gonna sit in and sing John Lee Hooker numbers to the cat.
